McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 80 of 140: A pint of Nebraska Bitter I sipped at an outdoor table in front of the McMenamins Third Street Pub in Corvallis, Oregon. According to the brewer:
“This golden bitter uses fresh Cascade hops in modest amounts to create a more subtle hop flavor and bitterness than its big brother, Hammerhead. It’s named after Southwest Nebraska Street in Portland, where the Fulton Pub and Brewery is located and where it was first brewed. This crisp and flavorful ale has become a standard attraction at McMenamins taps everywhere.” Measurements: 4.5% ABV • 20 IBUMy notes from that day read: “This time I took pictures of the beer and made notes ... when I had it the first time playing pool with my son I neglected these things! Nebraska Bitter is pretty good, perhaps just slightly bland ... maybe I like stronger beers (higher IBU) after all! I don’t know why it’s called Bitter, because there doesn’t seem to be anything bitter about it. The beer was better with the meal than alone. I don’t think I would order it again.” Parked in the background is my 2009 Toyota Tacoma. July 2016.
