McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 98 of 140: A glass of popular Ruby Ale which I sipped in the tiny Honors Bar at McMenamins Kennedy School, in the northeast Portland Concordia neighborhood, during my October 2015 visit. According to the brewer:
“One of our most popular standards, we still make Ruby with the same aims we had when brewing the first batch back in March of 1986: To create an ale light, crisp and refreshingly fruity. Great Western Premium 2-Row and 42 pounds of Oregon-grown and processed raspberry purée is used to craft every colorful batch. Simple but delicious.” Measurements: 4% ABV • 5 IBU
My notes from that day read: “OK beer, but not great ... one time only. Classical opera music, windows open, toasty free-standing wood-burning stove. It’s wonderful when a breeze blows through the window!”
