Widmer Brothers Brewing, longtime supporters of Portland’s soccer club, announced their flagship Hefeweizen as the official craft beer of the Portland Timbers. With the announcement came the debut of new green and gold packaging for all Hefeweizen sold within Oregon. A couple interesting little tidbits I found on the label includes the “official craft beer” statement which is kind of a funny fuck you to the Brewers Association who does not consider Widmer to be craft beer. I also like the little blurb about Widmer Hefe being “The Original American Hefeweizen” as perhaps the Portland breweries largest claim to fame.
