Drink of the Week: Widmer Brrr


It's definitely getting chilly outside, so it seems like the perfect time to cozy up with a winter ale. Obviously the clever name of this beer caught our attention first, but there's much more to it than that. This is Widmer's first new winter ale in four years, and while it has a relatively high ABV (7.15%), it's nice and smooth with a delicious balance of maltiness and hoppy bitterness and some winter spice to add more complexity. It will be available in 17 markets across the U.S. from next week through the first week of January, and as a fun bonus, every six-pack comes with a handy gift tag just in time for the holiday party and gift-giving season.

Killer! So is this replacing their brewmaster series this year?

No, this isn't replacing the Brewmasters Release. That will be coming out in January, and we hear it will be a Belgian-style golden ale. Cheers!
