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.

A classic Northwest Pale Ale and McMenamins Standard. This rich chestnut colored gem is a model of harmony between hops and malted barley. Hammerhead's signature Cascade Hop nose and intense hopped flavor blend nicely with the caramel tones from the Crystal Malt. This beer has a vocal following; to run out is an unforgivable sin.

Welcome the first-ever company-wide spring seasonal IPA from McMenamins! A light straw color makes way for aromas of grapefruit, mixed berries and fresh pine, thanks to a thorough dry-hopping. A medium body welcomes a bready sweetness and flavors of citrus and tropical fruit. The finish is crisp, with an adequate bitterness. So, raise a pint to the institution that is the Pacific Northwest IPA.
