Celebrate OSF’s Birthday with this special beer flight.

 

About • Parson’s Double Brown

The Parson Brown has become a wintertime standard at the OSF McMenamins the last 5 years. Yet this year we decided to enhance the batch a little more. What did we enhance it with? More malts, more hops, more flavor and more goodness! The mellow toffee malt flavors combine well with a light roast character. More hops, especially of the floral varietal, bring on a nice roundness to the beer. Earthy and floral aromas give in to a taste of piney hops that combines a slight bitter and sweet flavor. Higher in alcohol than most other brown ales gives Parson’s Double Brown a slight warmth at the back of your drink and warms your soul when shared with good friends. This particular Parson Brown may be just what you are looking for to take a stroll through a Winter Wonderland.

About • Sleepy Hollow Nut Brown

Content

Time has slipped by again and we are confronted with a myriad of changes in the season of autumn. It’s the time of year to start savoring the potion of your choice to warm the bones and soothe the soul. And one can’t think of anything better than the McMenamins classic seasonal brew, Sleepy Hollow Nut Brown. This longtime favorite has a chestnut color and medium body that will cast an otherworldly spell over you. The complex malt character, well balanced with Chinook and US Golding hops, will have you walking in a continual reverie. Legend has it that Ichabod Crane downed a few Nut Brown Ales listening to local ghost tales and scary legends at the Van Tassel merry-making party before his fateful trip home. Be watchful and clear-headed on your way home lest you begin to grow fanciful, see shapes and shadows in the night and hear things in the howling wind. It may just be your imagination running away with you or it very well may be the Headless Horseman on his fire-breathing black stallion following you!

About • Black Widow

Content

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.

About • Rum Spun Black Widow

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. To further envelop this flavorful elixir the OSF Brewery has added oak spirals that were soaked in our Three Rocks Rum for 3 weeks. These spirals were then added to the Black Widow Firkin where another 4 weeks of conditioning allowed a unique and eerily good concoction. 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. May your tricks always be a treat!!
