Cold, wintery days call for rich, dark beers – and McMenamins has got you covered. Nov. 19 marks the 31st birthday of Terminator Stout – a rich, full-bodied ale that’s one of McMenamins three much loved “standard” beers – and a birthday bash celebrated “across the land” in honor of this brew. On Black Friday (Nov. 25), the 23rd Avenue Bottle Shop will host Pitch Black Friday, a dark beer tap takeover with ales from McMenamins and guest breweries. They’ll be open until midnight so savvy shoppers can head over after the mall.

McMenamins’ robust stout is celebrating 31 years’ worth of sipped pints with:

o   $8 growler fills, $4 pints and limited-edition 22-ounce bottles (stock up if you’re a Terminator fan – there’s only a limited supply)

o   A special Terminator-themed Discovery Hunt where you can solve McMenamins art-themed clues at Rams Head, the 23rd Avenue Bottle Shop, West Linn, Fulton, Kennedy School and Hillsdale for the chance to win a custom Terminator bottle opener keychain and an overnight stay at a McMenamins hotel

o   Smoked Terminator, a small-batch Terminator variation, brewed at Kennedy School

Surprise your favorite beer lover with something different in their stocking this year: Kris Kringle Traditional Yuletide Ale, a warmer perfect for the wet, cold winter nights of the Pacific Northwest. The 2016 version is a hearty and robust ale with toasty, rich and chocolaty malt flavors and hints of ginger and cinnamon. Generous amounts of two different hop varieties were added in five different additions which deliver a magnificent and massive hop assault.
