About Roadhouse Refreshments

Roadhouse Refreshments

Here at Cornelius Pass Roadhouse, you'll find one of McMenamins' top producing Breweries, and the modern day Imbrie Hall Pub that was built from the timbers of Portland's historic Henry Weinhard's Brewery. Initially housed in the old Roadhouse, this small Hillsboro Brewery shared space with the restaurant kitchen, to the extent that they shared the same hood fan as the burger grill. It also featured old school open fermenters, which are problematic in a kitchen for obvious reasons. A decade later, the Roadhouse Brewery got its own decidedly upscale quarters. This is where Brewers Brady Romtvedt & Chris Oslin reside, putting their passion to work as they carefully craft each unique brew. You'll be glad you brought your curiosities as they have decades of experience that have lent stories they're willing to share with you. Enjoy these one time offerings because when they're gone, they will be no more.

Note: Beers poured at this tasting event qualify for happy hour pricing.

This event is an Official Limited Edition Beer Tasting! You can obtain an experience stamp, getting you one step closer to a $20 gift card, if you've purchased the Passport Insert that allows for additional experience stamps.

About Izard of POG IPA

from Oak Hills Brewery
As a constantly emergent style, New England IPAs only utilize hops that impart a tropical, juicy sweetness rather than the classic bitter, dank or citrusy flavors that can come from bittering hops. These hazy brews maintain a creaminess all their own. Our New England IPA is infused with POG: passion fruit, blood orange and guava. Pog was originally invented by Mary Soon in Maui in 1971 and its original mascot was the "Izard of Pog," a medieval looking gnome with a magic wand and stars around its head. Enjoy this juicy, tropical POG IPA and give a salute to the Izard.

About Marionberry Cream Ale
