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!

Pot of Gold
This beer is a fun mind teaser! Bright golden body that is smoothed out by the wheat and flaked barley and yet there is this flavor that we all love… coffee! Robust notes of roasted beans bring this fun ale to a new level with tricking the mind and palate between flavors and coffee.

Easy going currents of Italian Plum lay across this deeply hued unique ale. Fermented with Sake yeast and blended with malts that bring the body to a darker color so that she is not heavily bodied. These two worlds come together to create an ale with a modern mouth feel as your mind sits and identifies all the unique tones, flavors and characteristics this lovely lady has to offer you.

Corkey’s Scottish Ale – 70 Schilling
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 al-ways 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.

On Nitro Tap:
McMenamins Vanilla Irish Stout
It is a very dark, ebony-colored stout with a thick, creamy and long-lasting head. The flavor is a fantastic fusion of coffee-like roasted barley bitterness and semi-sweet chocolate. A moderate hop bitterness balances pleasingly with this hearty backbone, while tiny nitrogen bubbles enhance the sensation on your taste buds with a smooth, silky creaminess. And the added bonus of fresh vanilla bean makes for an amazing ale!

Edgefield Hard Apple Cider
Locally grown apples are juiced and fermented into a light, crisp and refreshing hard cider.
Edgefield Perry – 100% Pear Hard Cider
Just as “hard apple cider” is fermented apples, “perry” is fermented pears. We started with a freshly pressed blend 82% Bartlett and 18% Anjou pears, and feremented this to dryness. Pears, unlike apples and grapes, contain a higher percentage of unfermentable sugars (mainly sorbitol), so the finished fermentation contains a higher level of sweetness from these residual sugars. To balance out the acidity, additional fresh-pressed pear juice was also blended back into the fermented perry.
