Widmer Brothers and Hophouse present an ongoing seasonal beer event, beginning on 12/18, featuring three of Widmer’s famed seasonal ales, the Brrrbon series, vintage 2013. Now you can taste all three of these unique, flavorful beers at one event.

Kick-off night is Wednesday 12/18 at 6:00, when Nick Reely from Widmer will be on hand to pour tasters and snifters of all three beers at a discount.

Special pricing available – $5 for the taster flight of all three beers, or $6 for a snifter pour of one of the beers. Prices and flights good while quantities last, hopefully throughout the holiday.

Barrel Aged Brrrbon ’13. This beer is an imperial version of their Brrr seasonal ale, aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels. This smooth winter warmer combines a rich malty sweetness with complex oak, vanilla and caramel characters … 9.5% ABV, 40 ABU.

Vanilla Barrel Aged Brrrbon ’13. The brewers added fresh whole vanilla beans to a few select barrels of Brrrbon ’13, which heightens the vanilla character imparted by the barrels, and adds a delicious layer of complexity to the beer’s oak and caramel character. 10.7% ABV, 40 IBU.

Ginger Barrel Aged Brrbon ’13. The brewers added fresh chopped ginger to the Brrrbon ’13. The addition of ginger complements the oak, vanilla and caramel flavors of the beer, and results in a unique, smooth winter warmer perfect for the season. 10.7& ABV, 40 IBU.

Nick will be on hand pouring the first night (12/18 6:00 – 8:00 PM), and our Hophouse staff will continuing pouring the specially-priced flights and seasonal beers until the taps run dry, hopefully throughout the holiday. We’ll also have several other Widmer specialty beers on tap all month, as part of a collaboration with our Widmer neighbors.

And as always, $10 growler fills on select beers. Come fill up for the holidays!

    Late Saturday night I was driving North on 405. Off to my right I could, as always, see the lovely Widmer brewing hub. However, tonight it appeared to be on fire. Not kidding. With my very forgiving girlfriend, I raced to the scene of the crime. To my relief, the lovely brewery was still intact, and it was just so cold, the steam from the active brewing going on inside was not able to rise and . Instead, it was just rolling over and growing larger. This would of been a tragedy, as I would have had to dive head first into the burning building to save as much of this worldly beer as possible.

    I feel like I have earned these tickets.
