McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 50 of 128: A Griff’s Porter I had at McMenamins Monroe Brewpub in Corvallis, Oregon. According to the brewer:
“This porter is a kinder, gentler beer than the more aggressive Terminator Stout. The Blackprinz malt is dehusked before it is roasted. This removes the astringent bitterness, and leaves in the dark color and sweet flavor. I named this brew after a good friend of 35 years. Porter is his favorite beer, so cheers Glenn.” Measurements: 5% ABV • 29 IBUMy notes from that day read: “It was OK, but nothing great ... slightly watery ... perhaps too kind and gentle!” March 2017.
