McMenamins Black Widow PorterMcMenamins’ Black Widow Porter is pouring soon…

Chilly weather and early sunsets may make us groan, but it’s the autumn season that inspires some of the best full-bodied microbrews in the Pacific Northwest. Enter McMenamins’ Black Widow Porter! First brewed more than 20 years ago at Thompson Brewery, Black Widow stands out from the typical pumpkin flavored line up of Halloween brews with its robust malty flavors and undertones of caramel and licorice. All McMenamins breweries will be making a batch of the porter this year, available October 15 through Halloween.

Beer Stats – (From Mcmenamins)

Each deep-black goblet of Black Widow is packed full of the robust notes afforded by generous amounts of black and roast malts and further spirited with ethereal wisps of caramel and licorice.  Both substantial and sublime, this elixir is sure to slake the most fiendish of thirsts.  Open up a creaking pub door, find a seat with friends and family, and nourish your inner ghoul with a brew steeped in tradition and mystery.  A good howl at the Cheshire moon couldn’t hurt, either.
