McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 10 of 100: A sample of Bobcat Pale which I tried at the Tavern on The Square, one of six venues on the McMenamins Anderson School property in the northern Seattle metro area suburb of Bothell, Washington. According to the brewer:
“The first beer made at Anderson School is in fact a re-creation of the very first beer made by McMenamins. We decided to produce it again to celebrate the one year anniversary of the doors opening here in Bothell, Washington. Back in October of 1985, a liquid malt extract was used to create our first bona fide flagship ale that predates all of the others. We think this current version, with its straw color and mild hop profile, does the original plenty of justice. Sit back, enjoy a pint, and raise your glass to the first of many years in our newest home.” Measurements: 5.2% ABV • 41 IBU
Notice the sunbeam through a window refracting into a rainbow. My notes from that day read: “I don’t like this sample very much ... a bit too hoppy or something. Good thing I didn’t get a whole pint.” I think the Hillsdale 30th Anniversary Ale re-creation was much better. 1 August 2017. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Olympus 12-100mm f/4.0 zoom lens.
