Ale & Cider on Tap

Brewer: Jen Kent

All Thompson Ales are available to go!

Purple Haze 
A light, crisp and refreshingly fruity ale made with boysenberries. Purple Haze is very lightly hopped to allow the berry flavor to shine. Slightly more tart and fuller bodied than our Ruby recipe, this is a pub favorite.
Malts: Premium Two Row
Hops: Varies
Fruit: boysenberries
OG: 1.040 TG: 1.007 ABV: 4.26 IBU: 4 SRM: 3

Backseat Wheat
For the malt lover; we let the hops take a backseat ride for this wheat beer. Brewed with a massive amount of wheat for a nice bready character add a heavy dose of crystal malts for a subtle caramel sweetness. Voila, Backseat Wheat is born. A small amount of hops provide a mellow bitterness to compliment the sweetness of the malt.
Malts: 2 Row, White Wheat, C40, Munich
Hops: Brewers Gold, Santiam.
OG: 1.049 FG: 1.011 ABV: 4.9 IBU: 19 SRM: 6

Jigsaw Jazz
Boysenberry and a touch of fresh ginger root make for this fun summer ale to enjoy on our sunny days.
Malts: Premium 2-row
Hops: Chinook
OG: 1.040 TG: 1.006 ABV: 4.39 SRM: 4 

Raspberry Smash
Double the raspberries with a Cascade hop profile which brings more of a dry finish to a summery beer.

Fruit: Raspberries   
Hops: Cascade

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 aro- ma 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. 
Organic Pale, Organic Munich, Organic 60L Crystal
Hops: Nugget, Centennial, Chinook
OG: 1.048 TG: 1.009 ABV: 5.03 IBU: 42 SRM: 6

We took our Blackthorn stout and added fresh vanilla bean.
Malts: Bairds Pale, Flaked Barley, Melanoidin,
135/165, Crystal Rye Malt and Black Kiln Malt 
Hops: Chinook , Cascade
OG: 1.067 TG: 1.012 ABV: 7.09 SRM: 42 

Blackthorn Stout
Brewed for our dearly missed friend, Jeff Jacobs, this warm bodied stout is for friends of past. Beautiful black body with notes of chocolate and black malt are balanced out with a touch of caramel notes to bring a little bit of sweetness for the palate. Raise a pint to all our missed friends! Malts: Premium 2-row, flaked barley, 135/165, c-40, black and chocolate malt. 
Hops: Chinook , Tettnanager
OG: 1.064 TG: 1.012 ABV: 6.71 SRM: 42 

Owlcapone DIPA
What better inspiration for a big beer than an owl taking over one of Salems beautiful parks! This big boy, though not full of sharp talons, does have an upfront hop profile! Spread your wings with this Citra hop packed DIPA! Just don't take my hat.
Malts: Pale, Vienna, Munich and c-0
Hops: Chinook, Mosaic and Citra
OG: 1.081 TG: 1.016 ABV: 8.38 IBU: 76 SRM: 10

Reverly Red Sak Ale (Nitro)
One word that brings so many images to mind. One beer that has many things to bring. Garnet Red in color, fueled by Sake yeast, and laid to rest over an oak coil that was soaked in Hogshead Whiskey for some nights. Brought back out for warm summer evenings under dark blue skies with sounds of revelry filling the air. Those nights when you know memories are being laid down and the time will be dreamed about. Raise your pints to images and beers that help bring these times that are shared together into a moment.
Malts: Red X, Optic, Red Wheat Flakes, Black
Hops: Chinook and Golding
OG: 1.067 TG: 1.016 ABV: 6.58 SRM: 15 IBU: 20

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.
Malts: Premium 2-row Malt and 75L Crystal Malt
Hops: Cascade
OG: 1.056 TG 1.010  ABV: 5.93  IBU: 44  SRM: 11

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!
Malts: Premium 2-row Malt
Hops: Vary
Fruit: Raspberries
OG: 1.039  TG: 1.005  ABV: 4.39

Hard Cider & Perry

Edgefield Hard Cider
Locally grown apples are juiced and fermented into a light, crisp and refreshing hard cider.
ABV: 6.8%

Seasonal Cider: Black Cherry Cider
The apples pressed off for fermentation were a blend of Red Delicious, Golden Delicious (added for color), Granny Smith (for acidity), and Fuji, Galas, and Honey Crisp (to increase sweetness). The fermented hard cider is then infused or finished with Black Cherry juice.
ABV 6.7%
