Widmer Brothers - Brrr Hoppy Red Returns For 2016

01 November 2016

Widmer Brothers Brewing is gearing up for winter with its classic seasonal, Brrr Hoppy Red Ale. Brrr is unique among winter warmers, with spicy hops and a trademark deep red color, rich body and hearty malt presence. First released as a N.W. Red Ale as part of the brewery’s experimental W Series in 2006, the beer quickly became a favorite, earning a spot in Widmer Brothers’ seasonal lineup less than a year later.

“As we head into winter, our brewers & beer drinkers start thinking about rich, complex beers that warm from within,” said co-founder Rob Widmer. “I know I look forward to Brrr’s arrival each year.”

As Director of Brewing Operations Doug Rehberg recalls, “Brrr is a beer that our brewing team wanted to drink during cooler months, influenced by the Northwest’s love of hoppy beers.” The result is a big, hoppy red ale that emphasizes aromatic and flavorful Simcoe and Cascade hops for a citrusy aroma that balances perfectly with the rich malt presence and that classic, deep red finish. Brrr is available in bottles as well as on draft at Widmer Brothers’ North Portland pub.

Enjoy Brrr and award-winning music at December to Remember: Widmer Brothers Brewing, along with 94/7, present the 12th year of December to Remember, a concert series featuring some of music’s best artists, for 2016. The cavalcade of music includes 12 amazing shows throughout the year’s final month at Portland’s Crystal Ballroom. Band of Horses, Phantogram, Jimmy Eat World, Fitz and the Tantrums as well as Saint Motel are among the highlights of this month-long music extravaganza. Brrr will be plentiful at the concert series (full list of shows below).
