It has finally happened. For years now we’ve wondered why the largest beer maker in Portland — Widmer Brothers Brewing — didn’t have a bike-themed beer. After all, not only are we the best biking town in America, but Widmer is a very bike-friendly company. Co-founder Rob Widmer even rode his bike in a commute challenge during National Bike Month in 2008.
Now comes word that Widmer has collaborated with another Portland-based company, Keen Footwear, to make a new beer that will be called Full Fender Brown Ale.
We don’t know all the details yet, but the official announcement and label art are expected to be unveiled next week.
