McMenamins Portland SW 2017 — photo 9 of 16: A pint of Sleepy Hollow Nut Brown I had at the McMenamins John Barleycorns Brewpub. According to the brewer:
“It’s time to start burning wood in the fireplace to drive the cold from the extremities. It’s also the time of year to savor the soul-soothing beverage of your choice, and one can’t think of anything better than the McMenamins classic seasonal brew, Sleepy Hollow Nut Brown. This longtime favorite has a chestnut color and medium body that will cast a festive spell over you, and a hint of toffee on the palate will gently warm your bones as an English brown ale should. The complex malt character, well-balanced with Chinook hops and US Golding hops, will have you walking in a continual reverie.” Measurements: 5% ABV • 14 IBUMy notes from that day read: “A nice beer ... similar to my favorite Moose Drool, but somewhat milder. It went great with my meal ... I would order it again.”
The pub is located just south of the intersection of I-5 and OR 217 in a light-industrial section of southeast Tigard, a city in the southwest Portland metro area. January 2017. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
