McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 21 of 128: A pint of Burgundy’s Red Ale that I got at O’Kanes, one of five venues for eating and drinking on the McMenamins Old St. Francis School property in Bend, Oregon. According to the brewer:
“This beer was made for the lovers of leather-bound books and rich mahogany. This red ale is a glass full of malty joy and hoppy goodness. With a nice balance of hops and malts, this brew has a medium body that’s complemented by a toasty, caramel-like malt flavor and subtle hop bite. Anyone holding a pint of this is definitley a ‘Big Deal’, and must be the life of the party.” Measurements: 5.0% ABV • 38 IBUMy notes from that day read: “Really nice ... very balanced, not too hoppy ... seems to be along the lines of Laurelwood Brewery Free Range Red that I like so much ... I would definitely get it again! Very good!” March 2018. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Olympus 12-100mm f/4.0 zoom lens.
