Brewer: Widmer Brother Brewing
Style: American Wheat Ale
This wheat beer is an American craft beer classic dating back to 1986. And while it doesn't receive the attention of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Widmer Hefeweizen continues to impress judges at the world's biggest beer competitions. Portland, Oregon's Widmer brews a smooth, creamy take on the German wheat beer, but then adds Pacific Northwest hops to give it bright citrus character that's distinctly American.
