McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 14 of 140: A Black Velvet Hazy CDA I sipped at a picnic table in the Fir Grove, just outside the Little Red Shed bar, one of eleven venues for eating and drinking on the McMenamins Edgefield property in Troutdale, Oregon, on the eastern edge of the Portland metro area. According to the brewer:
“Inspired┬áboth by the New England-style IPA and Cascadian Dark Ale, Northeast meets Northwest in this mind-blowingly aromatic and flavorful regional brew-style lovechild. This tasty hop bomb was brewed with four pounds of Simcoe, Citra, Ekuanot and Cascade hops per barrel.” Measurements: 5.7% ABV • 44 IBU
My notes from that day read: “Not so great ... too much on the sweet and fruity side and not enough hop bitterness ... well, it does say 8 IBU ... I would definitely not get it again.” June 2018. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Olympus 12-100mm f/4.0 zoom lens.
