McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 106 of 140: A pint of Ships Ahoy Wheat which I sipped at the McMenamins East Vancouver Brewpub in Vancouver, Washington, just across the Columbia River from Portland, Oregon. According to the brewer:
“Ships go up and down the Columbia River┬áconstantly, carrying loads of various materials. Shipments of rye and wheat were sent just for this batch. A chewy, spiced texture comes from the rye and that blends nicely with Amarillo hops to┬áprovide a hint of fruity hops. Enjoy watching the ships and they might just bring you your next pint.” Measurements: 5.2% ABV • 36 IBU
This is the 100th different beer I have tried at McMenamins! My notes from that day read: “An OK wheat ... pretty good, but not great ... somewhat bland. It has a bit of a weird, astringent aftertaste ... maybe that’s the rye ... I haven’t had much success with rye beers. Widmer Brothers Hefe is still my favorite wheat beer.” August 2017. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
