McMenamins Edgefield Birthday 2017 — photo 2 of 59: A pint of seasonal Jam Session ISA which I enjoyed with a meal on the small back porch of the Black Rabbit Restaurant and Bar, on the ground floor of the hotel, one of eleven venues for eating and drinking on the McMenamins Edgefield property in Troutdale, Oregon, on the eastern edge of the Portland metro area. According to the brewer:
“Summer is in full swing and its song plays the soundtrack to a beautiful season. In an inspired effort to add our instrument to the collaboration, we produced Jam Session ISA: a light, easy-drinking beer that embodies the spirit of summer. Being an India style, expect our quartet of hops to be the front man of this band, providing strong floral and pine riffs with a beat of citrus. A majority of the hops are added in late additions, which provides full flavors and aromas without the bittering astringency. Whether you’re a hard-rockin’ IPA drinker or a classic golden ale fan, you’ll find the essence and song of the season in every pint.” Measurements: 4.8% ABV • 26 IBUMy notes from that day read: “It is the last day of Jam Session being beer of the week during Oregon Craft Beer Month, so I decided to get it again, at the reduced price, even though I had first tried it only seven days ago.” July 2017. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
