Widmer Brothers Brewing returns another popular handle from their Rotator IPA Series. Falconer’s IPA is a flavorfully hopped ale featuring a unique hop pellet, Falconer’s Flight™, an exclusive proprietary hop blend developed by Hopunion LLC. According to Hopunion, “This novel proprietary pellet blend is comprised of many of the Northwest’s most unique hop varieties and is perfect for any Northwest-style IPA. Each hop has been hand selected for its superior aromatic qualities, imparting distinct tropical, citrus, floral, lemon and grapefruit tones.” To honor Glen and support his legacy, Hopunion will be contributing proceeds from each Falconer’s Flight™ hops purchase to the Glen Hay Falconer Foundation.
What began as a one-time brew has blossomed into a popular mainstay with Widmer and now, folks nationwide can enjoy Falconer’s IPA. Here’s more information from Widmer on this grubbin’ brew:

Glen Falconer was passionate about friends, family and great IPAs. So in tribute, we’ve created an IPA worthy of this master brewer. Made with Falconer’s Flight hops from Hopunion LLC, a blend named for Glen himself. The result is a bright, moderately bitter IPA with stonefruit aromas and a strong malt backbone. We think Glen would approve. Prost!
