The following beers have been provided to us, by the fine folks at McMenamins breweries. We'd say a road-trip is in order.
Jalapeño Miel De Oro Ale – Small batch
Brewed by Jen Kent, Thompson Brewery
Only on tap at Boon’s Treasury in Salem June 8 until it’s gone!
Roasted Anaheim and Jalapeno peppers slowly simmered in honey and then added to McMenamins Deacon Blue Golden Ale result in a beer with warm peppery notes and just a touch of sweetness. Not too hot, full of flavor and perfect for a summer day.
OG: 1.047 TG: 1.008 ABV: 5.03 IBU: 20 SRM: 5
Squeeze Play IPA – Small batch
Brewed by Brady Romtvedt, Cornelius Pass Roadhouse Brewery
On tap at Cornelius Pass Roadhouse June 17 – September 5
In honor of the return of baseball season and our beloved Hillsboro Hops, McMenamins created Squeeze Play IPA, a crisp, summer-style IPA with big citrusy flavors imparted from Northwest hops and a clean, dry finish. So hoist a pint and root, root, root for the home team!
OG: 1.061 TG: 1.009 ABV: 6.71 IBU: 63 SRM: 4
Hop Gremlin Double IPA – Small batch
Brewed by Justin Azevedo, Wilsonville Old Church Pub and Brewery
On Tap at Wilsonville Old Church now until it’s gone!
This IPA is packed with rich hop flavor and notes of guava, lemon, evergreen and fresh pine. Its dry finish and smooth mouthfeel might fool you into thinking this beer is lighter than it is, so consider yourself forewarned: this beer packs an ABV over nine percent.
OG: 1.081 TG: 1.009 ABV: 9.29 IBU: 100+ SRM: 6
Copper Moon – Summer seasonal
Available at all McMenamins pubs June 17 – August
It’s no coincidence that the release of McMenamins’ latest seasonal, Copper Moon, and the official first day of summer almost coincide. Organic malts and Horizon, Citra and Chinook hops impart a summery smooth sweetness to this juicy, thirst-quenching beer. The season of summer beers may seem endless but don’t be fooled! Make sure to grab a pint of Copper Moon while it’s still available through August.
OG: 1.048 TG: 1.009 ABV: 5.03% IBU: 51 SRM: 6
