The Widmer Brothers Pub


Widmer Brothers Pub has been serving guests in North Portland since 1996. With the main brewery across the street and our 10-barrel innovation system next door, the pub is where we showcase our love for crafting delicious beer. Over half of our 27 taps feature small batch brews from the adjacent innovation brewery, so there’s always something new to try. Perch at the bar with a flight or grab a growler or Crowler of your favorite beer to go.

Tap List


4.9% ABV | 30.0 IBU


* 2017 GOLD MEDAL WINNER - Oregon Beer Awards! *
Meet the beer that started it all. Our naturally cloudy flagship brew starts with the highest quality wheat. It's bold, clean flavor and pronounced citrus and floral aromas are what define American-style Hefeweizen. So pour yourself a cool, cloudy glass, finish with a lemon and enjoy the original.

Apple Cider

0.0% ABV | 0.0 IBU

Cider - Other


8.5% ABV | 35.0 IBU

IPA - Brut

Brut IPA is the foil to NE Style IPA’s and we’re playing along. Our version is a clean and dry version with amped up use of Nelson Sauvin and Hallertau Blanc hops to play to the vinous character of the style. Characteristically dry and highly carbonated we hope you raise a flute to expanding beer to the “Rich and Famous.” This version has hibiscus added for a soft blush color that adds a little tartness to an already super fancy beer. Get your glam on and get ready for to join the super elite for a good time!

Small Hands Make Big Walls - Mexican Lager

4.8% ABV | 19.0 IBU

Lager - Vienna

Unlike its European counterpart, Mexican Vienna Lagers are slightly darker and less malty due to the use of adjuncts typically in the form of corn. Aromas of caramel and grahm cracker from the malts are dominate, followed by an intermingle of slight floral notes from the Tetnanger noble hops. One might even say that it’s off the wall…

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!

Deadlift Imperial IPA

8.6% ABV | 70.0 IBU

IPA - Imperial / Double

Deadlift boasts the strong hop flavor of an imperial IPA without the weigh down. Citrusy and berry-like Nelson Sauvin hops meld with just enough malty sweetness and caramel character to balance the intense hop flavor and aroma.

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.

Fresno Wit

4.5% ABV | 20.0 IBU


Fresno Style Wit is a classic take on the Belgian Wit Style brewed with a traditional yeast, Forbidden Fruit. The fruity nuance is usually accentuated by coriander and orange peel added to the whirlpool. This version used navel and Valencia oranges that Tom Bleigh picked from a friends’ magical (albeit small) orchard in the middle of downtown Fresno. The ornages were picked at the peak of season and then complimented with chamomile flowers instead of coriander. The resulting wit is spicy, floral, with rich citrus character. The beer says Fres-yes, not Fresno!

PCT Lager

5.0% ABV | 10.0 IBU

Lager - American Light

Light American Lager

Batch 69

4.0% ABV | 15.0 IBU

Gose with sea salt and coriander

Gose with Sea Salt and Coriander

Dark Perspective

5.0% ABV | 35.0 IBU


What you have here is a traditional Schwarzbier. A recipe from brewer Dan Munch, this beer is well balanced and clean. Rich malt character from a generous addition of Munich malt provides a smooth base to support a light roasty character. Nearly black in color w/ tinges of red, this beer is surprisingly easy drinking. Full flavored without being overwhelming, Dark Perspective is perfectly balanced. Prost!

Why Does Everyone Always Sh*t On Cascade?

5.5% ABV | 70.0 IBU

IPA - American

In collaboration with Gigantic Brewing. Cascade hops have always been the standard for craft beers but have recently fallen out of style. These spicy, earthy and aromatic hops help create the backbone of the craft beer industry. Lets enjoy them in thier best light. Why does everyone always sh*t on cascade hops?”

Czech This Oil

5.2% ABV | 35.0 IBU

Pilsner - Czech

This beautiful Czech Style Pils was brewed with traditional ingredients, including Floor Malted Pilsner and a liberal amount of Czech Saaz hops. To add to the historical significance of this style, we decided to do a single decoction mash for this beer. This involves taking a portion of the mash and boiling it, releasing wonderful caramel malt flavors through what is known as a maillard reaction. This beer is so approachable and incredibly satisfying with a firm bitterness and a chewy maltiness playing off of each other. A little brewer’s secret: this is the style a lot of brewers reach for. Sometimes referred to (at least by us) as truly a “brewer’s beer”. Enjoy!


5.5% ABV | 15.0 IBU

Piña Colada Cream Ale

Cream Ale with Pineapple and Coconut

Steel Bridge Porter

5.6% ABV | 48.0 IBU

Porter - American

*OBC Collaborator Series*
Steel Bridge Porter wears a beautiful dark robe with a creamy coffee-colored head. The mocha flavors are rich and seductive, yet dry and drinkable. All the malt going on does not hide the hops, which are well-integrated into the overall brew.

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.

Pear Golden

5.5% ABV | 20.0 IBU

Golden Ale

Secret Stash

6.2% ABV | 60.0 IBU

IPA - American

Brewed with hop hash and hemp seeds

Tang-A-Rang Tropical Sour

4.0% ABV | 5.0 IBU

Sour - Gose

Tang-A-Rang is a loud and punchy sour ale that packs tang and tropical citrus of Passionfruit and Guava smoothed out with mellow botanicals of Hibuscus flower. This tart and refreshing sour is tropical heaven in a glass.
