McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 95 of 140: A pint of Redshirt Session Ale which I enjoyed at the McMenamins Broadway Pub, on the corner of NE 15th Avenue and Broadway in the Sullivan’s Gulch neighborhood of Northeast Portland, Oregon. According to the brewer:
“Like the wearers of it’s namesake, this beer goes down quick! As an away team of bready, toasty malts beam down to your palate, mild floral hops maintain the balance of power from high orbit.” Measurements: 4.3% ABV • 30 IBUMy notes from that evening read: “I really like it ... similar to my favorite Lompoc Proletariat Red, but not as hoppy ... I would definitely get it again! Too bad they don’t sell it in bottles (or cans)!”
I didn’t realize it at the time, but once I started researching this caption, I was excited to discover that the name of this beer and its description are in honor of Star Trek, of which I am a huge fan! December 2016.
