Brewers: Chris Oslin & Brady Romtvedt

Black Widow Porter

Black Widow
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

Purple Haze
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

Sun Hammer Double IPA
Sun Hammer Double IPA is the result of the genesis and obliteration of two stars, the rise of our sun and its life-giving-mutation-spurring love from which sprang forth barley, hops, yeast, the Professor and myself. We combine to nourish you with a bold brew of barley orbited by resinous clouds of hop ether. Imbibe. Smile. Count our lucky stars.
OG: 1.079  TG: 1.012  ABV: 8.64%  IBU: 97  SRM: 11

On Nitro Tap:

This strong ale was first brewed at the Thompson brewery in Salem by CPR brewer Chris during his first tour with McMenamins. You can still find this brew offered at the Thompson’s because the regulars demand it. Deep mahogany in color and dangerous just like the ancient weapon it’s named after… sip slow or lose your head. 
OG: 1.072  TG: 1.015  ABV: 7.35%  IBU: 61  SRM: 13

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

Indian Summer IPA
What a perfect time of year to kick back and enjoy this ultra-hoppy brew featuring a clean, crisp taste along with prominent hop aroma and a lingering bitterness.
OG: 1.064  TG: 1.012  ABV: 6.71%  IBU: 77  SRM:

Farmstead Wheat
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

Simcoe Smash
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

Ruby Ale

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%

Hard Cider

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

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!
ABV: 6.5%

Enjoy a pint of McMenamins' finest!
