McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 17 of 100: A pint of Cascadian Common which I enjoyed with my lunch at the North Shore Lagoon, one of six venues on the McMenamins Anderson School property in the northern Seattle metro area suburb of Bothell, Washington. According to the brewer:
“Adopted from a historic style traced back to the California Gold Rush, Cascadian Common is a blend of old world brewing techniques and new world ingredients. Having used components entirely from the Pacific Northwest, this brew puts a new twist on an old style that really lets it shine. Chinook hops from Oregon and Cascade hops from Washington provide great aromatic qualities with just a touch of bitterness. California Lager yeast fermented at ale temperatures brings it all together with a crisp malt body.” Measurements: 4.5% ABV • 45 IBUI forgot to write notes at the time, but I think that it was pretty good, and that I would get it again. 1 August 2017. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Olympus 12-100mm f/4.0 zoom lens.
