Tap List

Rada Strata 2.0

7.2% ABV | 85.0 IBU

IPA - American


5.8% ABV | 35.0 IBU

Lager - American Light

The third in our 2017 trials of experimental hops! We brewed a simple lager to create a clean canvas to sample new hops from the field. We added the hops at WHP and FV for maximum aroma and flavor exploration. This trial has a unique character of coconut, wood, mango, and apricot. Try all the X-Series lagers side by side!

Minor White Industrial Lager

5.3% ABV | 35.0 IBU

Lager - North American Adjunct

Made for the “Pitchering Oregon” art project curated by the Portland Art Museum in partnership with Eric Steen. We used ingredients and made a beer that would have been similar to the beer Minor White himself may have been drinking with one minor exception, we added a small portion of white wheat as a nod to White’s last name. We hope you’re inspired by this beer as much as the art!

Hefe X (Nelson Sauvin Hops)

4.9% ABV | 50.0 IBU


Hefeweizen is an unfiltered American style Hefeweizen (wheat and yeast ale) that is purposefully very cloudy in appearance due to live yeast in suspension. Wheat and biscuit aromas and flavors provide the backbone to the golden beer, and they are augmented by yeast and hop derived citrus and faintly spicy attributes. The Hefe X series is a FV (Dip) hopped version focusing on a single hop varietal to highlight the inclusion of specific and unique hops. Nelson Sauvin hops provide nuances of white grapes, gooseberry and floral notes to our favorite Hefeweizen.

Green & Gold Kölsch

5.2% ABV | 35.0 IBU


We are RCTID. Each year the Timbers Army and the 107ist host a homebrew competition, bringing out the best in what makes the Rose City Great: craft beer, creativity, and a passion for the Green & Gold. Timbers Army homebrewer Abram Goldman-Armstrong's recipe was chosen and brewed by Widmer Brothers for you to enjoy as you cheer on your Timbers. Green & Gold Kolsch is a golden straw-colored beer with aromas of strawberry and cracked black pepper, a soft sweet bready malt flavor, a creamy body, and a crisp dry finish. Prost!

Understated New Wave

5.2% ABV | 36.0 IBU

IPA - Session / India Session Ale

Understated New Wave is a delicious, approachable Mosaic ale that is quaffable, but doesn’t compromise on flavor. There is just enough malt to support the fresh Mosaic hop flavors. Nuances of stone and tropical fruit can be found in the clean finish, making you want to take another sip.

Noble Fog

8.0% ABV | 70.0 IBU

IPA - American

Noble Fog big, dank West Coast IPA that toes the line of an Imperial, but drinks smooth and balanced. Slight tropical notes help balance out the dank pine and grassy hop character. The body of the beer holds up to the aggressive hoppiness without coating the palate too heavily.

It Never Rains

5.5% ABV | 45.0 IBU

IPA - American

A collaboration with the Oregon Ducks, this light and refreshing IPA was brewed with delicious ripe Oregon Blackberries, giving the final beer a ruby hue and just a hint of berry sweetness.

Bleed Orange & Black

7.2% ABV | 65.0 IBU

IPA - Black / Cascadian Dark Ale

Bleed Orange & Black is our collaboration with the Oregon State Beavers football team. This Black IPA (also known as a Cascadian Dark Ale) has roasty chocolate notes from the dark roasted malts, complimented with orange citrus zestiness.

It's A Thing #4

7.1% ABV | 65.0 IBU

IPA - New England

It’s a Thing #4 IPA is a marriage of the IPA styles that are currently dominating their respective coasts. With the big tropical hop flavors coming from the New England IPA and the dry and aggressive bitterness that we love here on the West Coast.

Russell Street IPA

6.3% ABV | 70.0 IBU

IPA - American

Russell Street IPA is the epitome of a West Coast IPA: intense hop flavor and sessionability balanced with a noticeable body. Named for the street that Widmer Brothers calls home, Russell Street IPA is powered by Mosaic, Citra, and Azacca hops for a pronounced citrus and tropical profile.


5.1% ABV | 35.0 IBU

Lager - American Light

The first in our 2017 trials of experimental hops! We brewed a simple lager to create a clean canvas to sample new hops from the field. We added the hops at WHP and FV for maximum aroma and flavor exploration. The first trial in our series has soft characters of plummy stone fruit and hints of strawberry. We’ll be brewing at least three of these in the next weeks to come. Collect and enjoy them all!

Twisted Citrus Hefe

Twisted Citrus is unfiltered, to finish with a full and clean mouthfeel and coating the tongue with notes of citrus and malty sweetness. Aroma is distinctly blood orange.

This And That

8.2% ABV | 70.0 IBU

Winter Warmer

This winter warmer is comprised of many different malts we had on our shelf. We also used some classic “C” hop varieties including Chinook and Cascade. The malt and hop varieties, along with brown sugar are combined to create a throw-back Winter Warmer, paying homage to the beers brewed in this bold style. Willamete and Simcoe hops were added to the fermenter to create a bright and floral nose, complimenting the warming and full bodied structure of the beer. This is one to enjoy and keep you warm as the skies turn grey, the nights come early and the air turns frigid. A liquid blanket of sorts…


7.7% ABV | 25.0 IBU

Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Dionysus is the base saison that was the PRO/AM collaboration between Keith Belshaw and Thomas Bleigh. This version is unblended (unlike the Bacchanalia) and showcases the unique character of the Saison yeast that was used during fermentation. Try it next to the Bacchanalia to see how the Pinot barrel-aging creates complex flavors.

Barrel-Aged Quadrophonic

10.5% ABV | 18.0 IBU

Belgian Quad

We brewed a huge Belgian-style Quad beer, and will be presenting it three different ways in the upcoming weeks. We've done the original Quad, a

Drop Top Amber

Red Ale - American Amber / Red

Drop Top is a rich, flavorful Amber Ale, with an exceptionally smooth and easy taste.

It all adds up to a brew that's as easy to appreciate as it is to drink.

PDX Pils

4.8% ABV | 34.0 IBU

Pilsner - German

PDX Pils is a Northern German style pilsner brewed in the northern part of Portland. At first whiff, notes of spice and lemon zest envelop you. Because we live in arms reach of the hop farms of the Pacific Northwest, we dry hopped our Pils with the once forgotten Columbia hop. PDX is sessionable at 4.8% ABV, perfect for both the short, grey days of winter and the long, sunny days of summer. The bitterness is firm and lingering true to a Pilsner brewed in the North of Germany. Graham cracker, lemon zest, and mild hop spice complement the bitterness making PDX Pils crisp & refreshing.

Drifter Pale Ale

5.5% ABV | 50.0 IBU

Pale Ale - American

Drifter Pale is hopped with Summit, Alchemy, and Nelson Sauvin hops. We used several types of caramel malts to provide flavor depth, enticing color, and a smooth, mildly sweet backbone to support the hop

Upheaval IPA

7.0% ABV | 85.0 IBU

IPA - American

Upheaval IPA is the result of our brewers’ relentless pursuit of the perfect IPA. With more than two pounds of hops per barrel, Upheaval IPA unleashes a huge hop flavor and aroma with serious bitterness and balanced finish. Brewed with wheat, the result is a hazy, bold IPA that’s Unfiltered. Unexpected. Unapologetic. Uncompromised.

Porter - American
