Jam Session ISA

Jam Session ISA
Spring is in full bloom and its song plays the soundtrack to a beautiful season. Wanting to add our instrument to the collaboration, the McMenamins brewers were inspired to produce Jam Session ISA, a light and easy drinking beer that embodies the spirit of spring as it fades into summer. Being an India style, expect our quartet of hops to be the front man of this band, providing strong riffs of floral and pine and a beat of citrus. A majority of the hops is added in late additions, which provides full flavors and aromas without the bittering astringency. Whether you’re a hard-rockin’ IPA drinker or a classical golden ale drinker, you’ll find the essence and song of the season in every pint. Enjoy a Jam Session ISA and turn the volume of your day up to 11. A one, a two, a one, two, three, Cheers!

Corkey’s Scottish 70 Schilling Ale
Many of the McPubs have long standing regulars that become like family to us. We meet the children, celebrate milestones in their life and know what they like to eat and drink as soon as they walk in. There are also times that these people leave us in passing and our hearts are sad. In honor of one of our long standing regulars, this ale is for one of our favorite men that we had grace the walls of Thompson Brewery. Entering the front door with his beautiful wife by his side, Corkey always had a great smile and would always ask how we all were doing. “What you got cookin’ in the back kid?” was one of my favorite questions he would ask me. In his honor I have brewed up a Scottish 70-shilling ale for the man who always split his lunch with his gal and would always request just ten French fries with his half. This ale is laid back, mellow, and has a soft hop profile which I felt was a good honor for a great man. Raise a pint to all who have passed. You are always in our hearts and never forgotten.

Copper Moon

Copper Moon
Copper Moon has a bit more malt quality and hop character than most other summer seasonals, giving rise to a refreshing, flavorful beer style that we like to identify as a Summer Pale Ale. A flavorsome yet summery smooth sweetness is the first thing you’ll taste. The hop flavor and aroma intermingle delightfully to generate a dazzling citrusy, floral and slightly spicy olfactory experience. There’s a Copper Moon risin’ again this summer across McMenamins, make sure that you check it out.

Aleways Dark Amber
In honor of the awesome beer scene that is growing here in little ol’ Salem, this guy is for Bobby who runs the amazing Aleway Bus that totes all of us beer fans around to different breweries to showcase all that they are doing. Lovely dark body, with some soft roast notes and dry hopped with Cascade hops for a little boost, this guy is a perfect compliment to our ever evolving love of beer in Oregon. Cheers! And check out the Aleways bus sometime!

A classic Northwest pale ale and McMenamins top selling beer. This rich chestnut colored gem is a model of harmony between hops and malted barley. Hammerhead's signature Cascade hop nose and intense hopped flavor blend nicely with the caramel tones from the crystal malt. This beer has a vocal following. To run out is an unforgivable sin.

Terminator Stout
Black as the darkest night, rich as the most decadent dessert, Terminator is for the true stout lover. This is a full bodied and flavor packed ale which draws its robust complexity from kiln-baked specialty grains. Look for a wide array of toasted, chocolate, nutty and coffee-like flavors in every pint! The devoted swear by it, and it remains one of our top selling ales year after year.
Malts: Premium 2-row , Munich, 40L Crystal, and Black Barley
Hops: Chinook and Cascade
OG: 1.065  TG: 1.015  ABV: 6.45  IBU: 30  SRM: 35

Ruby Ale

One of our most popular standards, we still make Ruby with the same aims we had when brewing the first batch back in March 1986: To create an ale light, crisp and refreshingly fruity. Great Western Premium 2-row and 42 pounds of Oregon-grown and processed raspberry puree is used to craft every colorful batch. Simple but delicious. Taste the original!
