Winter is coming. (This isn’t about Game of Thrones.) Widmer Brothers Brrr has returned. The beer first hit the craft beer scene in 2006, and stayed in the lineup.
“Brrr is a beer that our brewing team wanted to drink during cooler months, and was definitely influenced by the Northwest’s love of hoppy beers,” said Brewer Doug Rehberg. “When we first brewed it, our goal was to brew a big, hoppy red IPA. We chose Simcoe hops, which were fairly new at that time, because of the hop variety’s fruity, spicy and citrus character. The recipe turned out to be perfect for the season, and it’s one that our team still looks forward to every year.”
