Beer & Cider
at the Roadhouse
Brewers: Chris Oslin & Brady Romtvedt
Originally created at the Thompson Brewery over 20 years ago on October 15, 1991 and made once a year by all Thompson Brewers to come after that, Black Widow has become an expected and welcome Halloween treat at the Thompson Public House in Salem. Black Widow’s web envelops the entire company every year now. Each deep-black goblet of Black Widow is packed full of the robust notes afforded by generous amounts of black and roast malts and further spirited with ethereal wisps of caramel and licorice. Both substantial and sublime, this elixir is sure to slake the most fiendish of thirsts. Open up a creaking pub door, find a seat with friends and family and nourish your inner ghoul with a brew steeped in tradition and mystery. A good howl at the Cheshire moon couldn’t hurt, either.
Malts: British Pale Malt, Munich, Flaked Barley, Wheat, 135/165 Crystal, Black, Roast
Hops: Chinook, Sterling Additional Ingredient: Licorice Root
OG: 1.074 TG: 1.017 ABV: 7.35 IBU: 41 SRM: 38
A light, crisp and refreshingly fruity ale. Slightly more tart and fuller- bodied than our Ruby recipe, this is a pub favorite. Made with boysenberries instead of raspberry puree.
OG: 1.040 TG: 1.006 ABV: 4.39% SRM: 3
Irish Stout - On The Nitro Tap
McMenamins Irish Stout is made as traditionally as possible with our own little twist. It is a very dark, ebony-colored stout with a thick, creamy and long-lasting head. 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.
OG: 1.045 TG: 1.007 ABV: 4.90% IBU: 38 SRM: 32
Bull Elk IPA
The King of the Forest is coming into rut. His piercing cry makes his presence known to mates and rivals. If he drank beer, it would be this one. Bull Elk IPA is a robust, satisfying brew with bold NW hops and pleasing finish.
OG: 1.060 TG: 1.010 ABV: 6.45% IBU: 94 SRM: 4
Barnstormer Pale Ale
Barnstorming was popular in the 1920s’ as pilots would fly from one farmer’s field to another offering airplane rides to the public. This pale ale is glowing golden amber in color and provides a complex malt flavor wonderfully balanced with 5 different hop varieties.
OG: 1.050 TG: 1.010 ABV: 5.16% IBU: 60 SRM: 8
Like the scrub-jays that frequent the brewery, this IPA is so light bodied it can nearly fly. So enjoy the bright burst of citrusy hops and prepare to wing away.
OG: 1.063 TG: 1.008 ABV: 7.10% IBU: 100 SRM: 6
Honey Steam Lager
We used our lager yeast to ferment this brew but at a higher temperature as if employing an ale yeast. The result is the same clarity you expect from a lager but boasts slightly more body and malt flavor.
OG: 1.048 TG: 1.006 ABV: 5.42% IBU: 20 SRM: 4
This crisp, easy-drinking American wheat beer is 50% malted white rounded out with Pilsen and Vienna malts. Generous flavor and aroma additions of citrusy hops give this beer a bright nose with flavors of fruit and bread.
OG: 1.046 TG: 1.006 ABV: 5.29% IBU: 23 SRM: 4
This is a “smash” beer which stands for “single malt and single hop”. This batch follows up on the success of Citra Smash and Mosaic Smash employing the dual purpose Simcoe hop. Look for herbal, earthy and fruity notes from this variety against the toasty Vienna malt in this hoppy golden ale.
OG: 1.041 TG: 1.007 ABV: 4.39% IBU: 42 SRM: 4
Hammerhead’s signature Cascade hop nose & intense hopped flavor blend with the caramel tones from the crystal malt.
OG: 1.056 TG: 1.010 ABV: 5.93% IBU: 44 SRM: 11
Terminator is a coal black & flavor-packed stout which draws its robust complexity from kiln-baked specialty grains.
OG: 1.065 TG: 1.015 ABV: 6.45% IBU: 30 SRM: 35
Light & refreshingly fruity, our popular raspberry ale was first produced at the Hillsdale Pub in 1986.
OG: 1.039 TG: 1.005 ABV: 4.39%
Edgefield Hard Apple Cider
Locally grown apples are juiced and fermented into a light, crisp and refreshing hard cider.
Edgefield Blackberry Hard Apple Cider
What says “late summer” in the Pacific Northwest more than the scrumptious taste of wild blackberries? Dark garnet in color, the aromas of fresh blackberries burst from the glass. Gluten Free!
