Ruby Monthly

McMenamins Ruby story in Portland Monthly by Brian Yaeger Artist Lyle Hehn / McMenamins

I love that I got a byline on this story, but c’mon, I hardly wrote 20% of it. Rachel Davidson wrote the 80% majority of this PoMo story outlining 5 ways McMenamins is actually pretty cool and “pioneered Beervana.” (More on that later from me.) As for my two bits:

Ruby Ale, the wheat beer with 42 pounds of Oregon-grown raspberries per batch that remains McMenamins’ best seller to the tune of 1.6 million pints last year.

But of course that’s just the ending of Ruby’s story or more like her impending mid-life crisis since she’s only 35.
