McMenamins currently operates 24 breweries, with our newest at Elks Temple in Tacoma, Washington.
Since our first brew at the Hillsdale Brewery & Public House in 1985, McMenamins has produced more than 75,000 batches. In 2016, our breweries collectively crafted more than 3,900 batches of beer (including more than 250 new house-specific recipes), which equaled more than 46,922 kegs of beer or an astounding 5.8 million pints!
In keeping with McMenamins' company philosophy, our breweries believe that brewing "green" is brewing responsibly. Waste products are given to local farmers, where they can be used; materials used are recycled or reused whenever possible; and second-hand equipment is largely used. Have a look at our earth-friendly brewing practices.
Many beer lovers are familiar with our ales: Terminator Stout, Hammerhead, Ruby, Black Rabbit Porter, Sunflower IPA and others. Read more about these "standards" and dozens of other beers, including our beloved seasonal selections. All of the McMenamins beers you know and love are made at our Washington and Oregon locations, with many coming from our Portland Breweries.
Due to the nature of handcrafting, it's safe to say that no two McMenamins batches are identical. Science and technology provide the backbone for our craft, but it is the unique qualities of each brew house, and the individual brewer's ale-crafting style, that ensure you will enjoy liquid refreshments that are truly special and made with every care for the environment. Whether you're in Seattle, Salem, Roseburg or Portland, breweries with the iconic McMenamins name are near. Come in and sip some creativity!

Roasting beans from small-farm growers to produce the best cup of coffee
McMenamins Coffee Roasting facility, a humble house in Northeast Portland, is dedicated to roasting the highest-quality Coffea Arabica species, resulting in coffees of elegant, complex flavors. We source our coffee beans from small farms in the world’s best growing regions. From the careful cultivation by our farmer partners to skilled roasting by our production team, each step is artfully executed. Our roasting – which began in-house in 2001 – is done in single small batches in a state-of-the-art German-made Probat gas drum roaster, which allows our staff to develop each coffee to its fullest potential.
As the company has grown, so has our coffee program. We now roast more than 70,000 pounds of coffee every year, yet have kept our commitment to handcrafting our coffee. By roasting each batch to order and delivering weekly, McMenamins Coffee Roasters is committed to giving customers of our pubs, restaurants and hotels the freshest coffee.
Our high-quality coffees are served in all our locations, and are available for purchase in our gift shops, at the Coffee Roaster, at our online store, and through our coffee subscription program. Look for our hand-stamped date of roasting on the back of every bag – the mark our roasters use to signify that these beans meet our rigorous standards. All in the name of a fresh cup to sip and enjoy.

McMenamins has always had an environmentally conscious climate. Since the company's inception in 1983, recycling had been handled on a pub-by-pub basis. In 1991, a full-time environmental coordinator was hired to oversee reducing, reusing and recycling the company's waste, including materials such as plastics, paper, cork, metals, glass, oil, cardboard and so on.
In addition to the standard pub recycling program, every effort is made to keep the brewing process as earth-friendly and resource-efficient as possible:
While these efforts may not make your actual pint taste better, you may enjoy it more in the knowledge that those who brew it take a personal interest in respecting and honoring the planet we all share.
