McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 4 of 100: A McMenamins Bagdad Ale I had at their Tavern & Pool, located on NW 23rd Avenue between Thurman Street and Savier Street, in the Alphabet District of Portland, Oregon. According to the brewer:
“Bagdad Ale is a benchmark beer for McMenamins. Inspired by the Pilsner style, our Bagdad Ale is one for the lager lovers. Its fine hop aroma and quick, light finish makes this a good ale for hot weather. It has become a favorite at McMenamins Bagdad Theater in Portland.” Measurements: 5% ABV • 22 IBUMy notes from that day read: “beer was kinda weak and watery ... maybe that’s what I get for IBU 22 ... don’t think I would try it again.” The picture is not out of focus, it’s just that I was using a slow shutter speed in the low lighting, and the beer bubbles were moving fast! June 2016.
