McMenamins Pub Crawl 2017 — photo 263 of 269: A sample McMenamins 50/50 Wheat that I had at the new location of their Cedar Hills Pub in Beaverton, Oregon, in the western part of the Portland metro area. According to the brewer:
“50/50 Wheat is made with 50% wheat and 50% 2-Row malt, balanced with a light addition of Northwest Chinook Hops. This is a typical American Wheat ale that’s light in color and body and great with a wedge of any citrus. Here lies a great spring into summer beverage.” Measurements: 4.1% ABV • 8 IBUMy notes from that day read: “A bit bland ... not bad, but there are better wheats, like Widmer.” December 2017. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Olympus 12-100mm f/4.0 zoom lens.
