McMenamins

McMenamins on the Savvy Traveler.

I just caught the last bit of story on The Savvy Traveler about Oregon as a travel destination. They mentioned the fabulous brewery/brewpubs of McMenamins. I was in Portland this past summer for the NASIG meeting and that was when I was introduced to the best fruit ale I have ever tasted. It’s called Ruby. It’s a raspberry ale that looks like a glass of iced Lipton tea and goes down very smooth. Unfortunately, the only place where one can buy bottles is at the brewpubs themselves, and they’re only located in Oregon.

One thought on “McMenamins”

  1. Hey there! I just came back from Seattle, and am still reeling from the incredible array of microbrews in the Northwest. Next time I am in Portland I shall seek yours out! My boyfriend took me to Roslyn, WA (where they used to film “Northern Exposure”) and there I had a very similar life-changing ale experience. And, as with your ale, that is the only place you can get it! I blogged about it not long ago…amazing stuff! 🙂 I really enjoy your blog–very diverse! Yours, Sulky (post-MLS, pre-employment, haha)
