Widmer Brothers Brewing is set to launch four new beers for the fall season. Returning to their Rotator IPA Series is Falconer’s IPA along with Old Embalmer Barleywine, Barrel-Aged Old Embalmer, and Downward Spiral Imperial IPL.
The Falconer’s IPA, the latest addition to the Rotator IPA Series brewed in tribute to Glen Hay Falconer. This marks the third and final time that this beer has been released from Widmer. This year’s vintage of Old Embalmer Barleywine was brewed with the new and unnamed X-431 hops. Then the barrel-aged version of Old Embalmer was aged in a pinot noir barrel. And finally their Downward Spiral is an imperial India-style Pale Lager (IPL) aged on new oak spirals.
Here are more complete details from the Widmer Press Release:
PORTLAND, Ore. – September 26, 2013 –Widmer Brothers Brewing has introduced four new limited release beers as part of the brewery’s fall lineup. Just in time for the cooler fall months ahead, the Portland-based brewery has released: Falconer’s IPA, the latest addition to the Rotator IPA Series; this year’s vintage of Old Embalmer Barleywine and a pinot noir barrel-aged version of Old Embalmer as part of the Brother’s Reserve Series; and Downward Spiral, an imperial India-style Pale Lager (IPL) aged on new oak spirals.
The release of Falconer’s IPA, a beer brewed in tribute to the late Oregon brewing legend Glen Hay Falconer, represents the third time this beer has been available as part of the Rotator IPA Series. Falconer’s IPA is an aggressively hopped Northwest IPA that features Falconer’s namesake hop blend from HopUnion: Falconer’s Flight. Widmer Brothers has brewed the beer annually since 2011 and it has become a favorite in the series, but this release will be the last as the Falconer’s Flight hop is being retired after this year.
