Widmer Brothers


What started as a dream for two ordinary brothers who just loved beer has now become a reality for
two ordinary brothers who still just love beer. Kurt and Rob Widmer helped lead the Pacific Northwest
craft beer movement in 1984 when, in their 20’s, they dreamed of brewing unique interpretations of
traditional beer styles. In 1986, Widmer Brothers Brewing introduced the first American-style Hefeweizen;
today, the unfiltered cloudy beer is one of the best-selling wheat beers in the country. Based in Portland, Oregon,
the brewery currently brews a variety of beers including Alchemy Ale, the Rotator IPA series, Pitch Black IPA,
Nelson Imperial IPA, a high-end Brothers’ Reserve Series and a full seasonal lineup. For more information
