About Cornelius Pass Roadhouse’s Double IPA Tasting

Cornelius Pass Roadhouse’s Double IPA Tasting

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 Pistol Peach Double IPA

from Old St. Francis Brewery
You're typically an IPA drinker, but you've been keeping an eye out for more. Fruit in your beer? Sometimes, sure. It's a fine line in your IPA, but you only live once, so you give the bartender the "go ahead" nod. Your thirst is overwhelming, so you reach for the Pistol Peach Double IPA in front of you. A light and hazy pour is filled with stone fruit and passion fruit aromas. The first sip hits your tastebuds like a bullet. It's full of citrusy hop flavor with a rounded mouthfeel thanks to a plethora of Oats and Wheat. A lasting bitterness duels with the smooth, mellow fruit flavor and both win! This is definitely a fruit beer for hop lovers. You'll be glad to have given it a shot!

About Unicorn Dreams Double IPA

from High Street Brewery
What do unicorns dream about when they take their little unicorn naps? Perhaps the fiery orange glow of this delicious Double IPA.

About 5-Ball Orange Double IPA

from West Linn Brewery
Rack 'em up! Northwest 2-Row anchors the grain bill, as small doses of crystal malts provide a sweet backspin and cue up the orange highlights. Blood orange puree lends a juicy throw to the finish. Late dry-hop additions of juicy Northwest hops increase the orange notes, while putting a touch of tropical English on the profile. Together, these ingredients run the table, winning the drinker a refreshing Northwest-style Double IPA packed with citrusy goodness.
