McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 103 of 140: A pint of Scot’s Harp Scottish Export 80 which I got at the Fireside Bar, one of five venues for eating and drinking on the McMenamins Old St. Francis School property in Bend, Oregon. According to the brewer:
“This Scottish-style session ale maintains a malt complex all its own. Semi-sweet tones meld with notes of baked bread. The hops add just the right balance to the overall performance. A dry finish and a low hop bitterness come through at the end of this melodious quaff. This is definitely an easy-drinking beer for 80 shillings!” Measurements: 5.2% ABV • 19 IBUMy notes from that day read: “This was pretty good, I suppose I would get it again. I ordered it at the Fireside Bar but drank it at O’Kanes at the other end of the property because O’Kanes has a very limited tap selection. This beer went great with the stuffed bacon wrapped jalapeños I enjoyed on the O’Kanes patio.” May 2017.
