McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 102 of 140: A pint of Safeside Wheat I had at the McMenamins Sunnyside Pub in Clackamas, Oregon, in the southeastern Portland metro area. According to the brewer:
“A classic American wheat ale, not cloudy like the more common hefeweizen. This brew is delicous with or without a lemon slice (I like it without). A barley to wheat ratio of 60%/40% makes this beer a challenge to brew. The gluten that makes wheat great for bread can cause difficulty in the lautering process. The golden ale with its crisp clean finish always leaves you on the safeside.” Measurements: 4.2% ABV • 12 IBU
My notes from that day read: “It’s OK, but fairly bland ... not exactly watery, but bland ... what do you expect for IBU 121? Sometimes in life the safe side is the boring side. At least there is no German yeast banana taste! I would not get this beer again. I like Widmer Brothers Hefe MUCH better, or even some other McMenamins wheats, like Farmstead Wheat or Reaper’s Wheat.” October 2017. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
