McMenamins McMinnville 2016 — photo 22 of 22: While I was at the historic (built 1905) McMenamins Hotel Oregon in downtown McMinnville, Oregon, I bought a $60, 12-bomber-bottle case of their flagship Hammerhead Ale to enjoy at home, where I took this picture. According to the brewer:
“A classic Northwest pale ale and McMenamins standard. This rich chestnut-colored gem is a model of harmony between hops and malted barley. Hammerhead’s signature Cascade hop nose and intense hopped flavor blend nicely with the caramel tones from the crystal malt. This beer has a vocal following; to run out is an unforgivable sin.” Measurements: 6% ABV • 44 IBUThis is one of my favorite McMenamins beers. May 2017. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 35-100mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
