Widmer Brothers Brewing

Widmer Brothers SXNW Brothers’ Reserve #7

As many of our reviews begin, here is another story about a brewery that began with two home brewers a long time before it became the norm. In 1979 home brewing was legalized in Oregon and Kurt and Rob Widmer began brewing beer for themselves, their family and friends. A few short years later in 1984 they quit their jobs and embarked on the journey of starting their own brewery.
