Nothing like celebrating a birthday during the COVID-19 pandemic, but this is not stopping McMenamins from celebrating one of its most popular beers, Terminator Stout, as it turns 35 today! All day today, November 19th, McMenamins will have specials on Terminator Stout and other items such a Terminator Stout infused food dishes. McMenamins locations in Washington State will be serving up Terminator Stout pints in their outdoor areas while Oregon locations will be selling 4-packs and growler fills to go.
First brewed 35 years ago in 1985, Terminator Stout is the result of a fondness for big, burly German beers, kiln-baked grains and a few failed batches. Legend has it that, “Mike McMenamin and the Hillsdale crew perfected the recipe and poured a pint, they noted the line where a rich, coffee-with-cream colored head rests atop the black-as-night Stout, and though this terminator marks the line between light and dark, it is the union of the two that gives us the rich notes of chocolate, nuts and coffee. Some lines are meant to be crossed.”
