Widmer Brothers & 10 Barrel Brewing Create “Fizz”

Widmer 10 Barrel Fizz

Widmer Brothers Brewing (Portland, OR) celebrates 30 years of craft brewing with a series of collaborations. The third collab is with 10 Barrel Brewing out of Bend, Oregon.

Meet Widmer Fizz, an interesting hybrid beer. Fizz is brewed with Meyer lemons, fresh ginger, and finished with champagne yeast. The result is an effervescent, bubby, summer offering.

“We got together with the 10 Barrel team, and they helped push this beer way out of the box,” said Ben Dobler, innovation brewer at Widmer Brothers Brewing. “We’re calling Fizz a ‘spritzer-style ale’ because the beer was inspired by spritzer champagne cocktails, and we feel like it’s a great description of what the beer actually delivers. The champagne yeast, Meyer lemon, and fresh ginger give it a really refreshing summertime taste.”

Widmer Brothers Fizz will be available in limited quantities in 22oz bottles, and draft.

Style: Herbed/Spice Beer (w/ Ginger, Lemons)
Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft.
Distribution: Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, San Diego, Minneapolis, NYC, Boston, Philadelphia

5.5% ABV, 20 IBUs
