    Fermentation Process

    Roasting & Brewing Process

    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:

    • Waste products including the "spent grain," used hop flowers, berries and brewers yeast are given to local farmers for reuse as livestock feed.
    • Nylon malt bags are collected for gardening, sand bags and eco-construction.
    • Wooden bungs used to seal kegs are chipped into a nutrient-rich garden compost.
    • Pallets and slip-boards used to transport kegs are returned from the distributor and reused.
    • Five-gallon buckets used to hold everything from cleaning agents to fruit products are reused in the pubs to recycle oil and broken glass.
    • Much of the brewing equipment is purchased second-hand and retrofitted to suit McMenamins' needs. In fact, most of the small-brewery fermenters began their service overseas in England.
    • Kegs are purchased from other breweries or industrial recycling plants.

    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.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      Can I buy a keg from McMenamins Breweries?

      Yes! McMenamins Ales are available for purchase at our Oregon and Washington Breweries. Sales depend on availability and the various breweries will have different styles available, so please be sure to call ahead for assistance in tracking down the perfect beer for your backyard BBQ or birthday bash.

      How much will a keg of McMenamins beer cost?

      A keg of McMenamins beer costs $120. All kegs require a $100 refundable keg shell deposit. Tapping equipment can be rented for $10 and requires a $40 deposit which is refundable upon the tap's return. McMenamins can only accept cash or credit cards for keg sales and deposits. Keg shells and rental taps must be returned to the brewery of sale to receive a deposit refund. A sales receipt must also accompany the shell and tap to receive the refund. A refund check will be made payable only to the purchaser of the keg.

      What about pony kegs?

      McMenamins occasionally makes pony kegs available for purchase. Please inquire with the brewery about smaller-sized kegs. Pony kegs will cost you $60, and have the same deposit requirements as the full-sized kegs.

      Do you fill Cornelius Canisters, or “Corny Cans”?

      Yes, we can fill Cornelius Canisters at select breweries. Call the brewery to make arrangements. You cannot get a canister filled unannounced. You’ll need to bring your canister and leave it with the Brewer for filling, but it must be dropped off cleaned and sanitized, in serviceable condition, and able to maintain pressure. Current pricing on Cornelius Canisters is $75 for 5 gallons, or $45 for 3 gallons. If you have a different size Corny Can, it is $15 per gallon.

      We do not have any pressure fittings or Corny Can parts to supply or rent. Currently, the locations that are verified to fill cans are Kennedy School, Crystal, Fulton, Highland, Hillsdale, John Barleycorns, McMenamins On The Columbia, Queen Anne, Thompson and West Linn.

      Who do I call to purchase a keg?

      Contact one of our breweries to purchase a keg. The Brewer will walk you through the process of purchasing, picking up and returning your keg.

      What kind of information or ID will I need when purchasing a keg?

      You’ll need to provide a valid driver’s license and another piece of acceptable identification. You’ll also need to provide the address of the location where the beer will be consumed, the time the beverage will be consumed, and the license plate of the vehicle transporting the keg. The purchaser who fills out the required Liquor Control Commission paperwork is the only person who may take possession of the keg.

      When can I pick up my keg?

      When you call the brewery to find out if a keg is available, you will also make arrangements for picking up the keg. Most keg reservations can be made up to a week in advance. For more long-term reservations (which must be prepaid) please contact the Edgefield Brewery at (503) 667-4352.

      How much beer will I get out of my keg?

      You should get approximately 120 16-oz. cups from a full-sized keg, and half of that amount from a pony keg.

      What will I need to dispense the beer from my keg?

      You’ll need to obtain a Sankey-style tapping device. McMenamins rents hand-pump models which work fine for parties where the beer will be consumed in one or two evenings. CO2-driven systems are recommended for service longer than 2 days. 

      Can I return an untapped keg for refund?

      Once a keg leaves the brewery, it cannot be returned for a refund, even if the keg is full. Please ensure that you have access to the proper tapping equipment before you purchase a keg.

      Can I buy a keg and then sell the beer?

      It is illegal to sell alcohol without a special permit/license. To purchase a keg and sell it to another party is not only illegal, but the purchaser is responsible and liable for what happens to the keg once McMenamins releases it.
