Widmer Brothers Brewing

Widmer Brothers Brewing, based in Portland, Ore., has introduced its new summer seasonal, Sunburn Summer Brew, initiating the unofficial start of summer.

“We crafted this beer with summer in mind, wanting to create something perfect for long, hot days,” said Rob Widmer. “It is a crisp and refreshing beer that is an anticipated addition to our seasonal lineup.”

Sunburn is a blonde ale with a light caramel body and subtle, refreshing hop aroma. This brew uses Citra hops, a new hop variety that only a few breweries have access to. This unique hop helps create a balanced and flavorful beer with little bitterness. Sunburn is one of four seasonal brews that Widmer Brothers will release this year, providing variety that highlights the tastes of each season. Beginning in 1986, Kurt and Rob were the first U.S. brewers to release a year round four beer seasonal lineup.
