McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 115 of 140: A pint of #Spirit of 77 Breweries CDA beer which I enjoyed at the Ironwork Grill at the McMenamins Grand Lodge property in Forest Grove, Oregon, in the western Portland metro area. According to the brewer:
“#Spiritof77Breweries is a collaboration between homebrewer and filmmaker John Lovegrove and McMenamins’ Crystal Brewery. In August of 2015, with a film crew in tow, John visited 77 Portland-area breweries in a single day, ending the epic mission at the Crystal Ballroom Brewery. This CDA reflects the achievement. Two percent of this beer is made up of 77 different specialty grains, one for each brewery. Mosaic Hops cap off this roasty and aromatic Cascadian Dark Ale.” Measurements: 6.1% ABV • 44 IBUMy notes from that day read: “It was dark like a stout, but not quite as thick or strong ... pretty good.” August 2016.
