In 1985, the McMenamins created the first post-Prohibition brewpub in Oregon: the Hillsdale Brewery & Public House. That same year McMenamins became the first brewery in the USA to legally use fruit in the brewing of ale (raspberries, for Ruby Ale, one of their standard ales). Today, McMenamins operates 25 breweries, produced more than 68,000 batches since their inception. 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 their 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.

In the 1790s, English sailors needed an ale that could withstand the long sea voyage to the colonies in Asia. Knowing that alcohol and hops are natural preservatives, English brewers developed these strong, highly hopped ales known as India Pale Ales. McMenamins Sunflower IPA was first introduced in the summer of 1995 at our West Linn brewery. Inspired by the bountiful sunflowers grown in the pub's beer garden, our IPA has a deep golden color and distinct yet subtle citrus flavors that satisfy both the diehard IPA drinker and those who prefer a lighter palate. Sunflower IPA is truly a beer for the masses.
- Porter - Baltic
Soft notes of dark chocolate and roast swirl together and spiral in toward the next pint. Lager yeast and extended aging time enhance the smoothness to balance the malts and hops. This Baltic Porter emits good vibes in the X-ray spectrum, but don’t get sucked in! Special Ingredients: Imperial Harvest Lager Yeast Malts: Pale, Dark Munich, Oats, Chocolate Malt, Caramel Munich, Roast Hops: Tettnanger, Chinook OG: 1.080 TG: 1.019 ABV: 7.87 IBU: 44 SRM: 32
