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.
