Black Widow Porter

For a special Halloween treat Old St. Francis brewer Mike "Curly" White has filled his famous firkin with this seasonal favorite. 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. This year, however, Black Widow’s web has enveloped the entire company, as every McMenamins brewery made a batch this year.

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.
