I’ve been trying a lot of different McMenamins beers during the two-year course of my McMenamins Passport adventure.
In order to organize and present those beer experiences, I have recently created two new conglomerate ‘super-albums’: McMenamins Beer (All Years)
and a complete, detailed, sortable listing of all the McMenamins beers I have tried.
But why should McMenamins beers get all the attention? As I wrote in Breweries and Pubs in Portland and Beyond:
According to the Oregon Craft Beer
Web site, there are currently more than 194 brewing companies operating more than 234 facilities in 72 cities dotting every region of the state. These breweries are concocting thousands of different beers — over 6,700 in Portland alone!
Wow! That’s pretty impressive!
It’s even more impressive now, exactly a year later, because Oregon now has 230 brewing companies operating 261 facilities in 73 cities. And PortlandBeer.org
is tracking over 10,000 beers from 96 breweries in the Portland area! So many beers, so little time!
Of course, I have tasted only a tiny fraction of all the beers crafted in Oregon. But those which I have and
taken photos of — over 30 and counting — can now be viewed and explored in this new conglomerate ‘super-album’. New beers will be added as I have the opportunity to try them. Cheers!
