With the Portland Timbers’ third season in the MLS already in full force comes a new beer brewed specifically for the Timbers. Yes, Widmer Brothers Brewing has recently released a beer to pay tribute to America’s Portland’s favorite pastime, Timbers soccer.
The bottle and label design is quite appealing to any Timbers fan. The packaging features the Timbers axe logo on the bottle cap, Timbers Army seal on the side of the main label and 107ist seal on the neck label. The neck label states:
“We are RCTID. Each year the Timbers Army and 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 and gold. Timbers Army homebrewer Abram “Abe” Goldman-Armstrong’s recipe was chosen and brewed by Widmer Brothers for you to enjoy as you cheer on your Timbers. Pints up Portland”
Well-known Timbers Army member Read More…

Waltham Massachusetts, just outside of Boston and once known for its manufacturing and major contributions to the American Industrial Revolution, has reinvented itself and returned from the brink. Its downtown, alive with artists’ showrooms, fine dining establishments, a reclaimed portion of the Charles River, and lovely walkways, is home to Watch City Brewing.
Everywhere in the city are reminders that this was once the home of Waltham Watch Company, where more than 35 million time pieces were manufactured. Now best known for educational institutions like Brandeis University and Bentley University, Watch City Brewing has found its place right smack in the center of the city.

When it comes to great summer beers, or just great brews in general, a top destination to fulfill your warm weather wishlist is The Bier Stein in Eugene, Oregon. Crowned by Beer West Magazine as having the best bottle selection on the West Coast, it’s hard to argue with the fact that The Stein has remained a solid resource for some of the region’s best brews since opening in 2005. The shop not far from the University of Oregon campus houses more than 1,000 different bottles of craft beer and ten unique rotating offerings on tap. Further, The Stein’s owner in Chip Hardy not only sells the good stuff – he brews it.
A huge part of the vibe at The Bier Stein can be attributed to Dave Stockhausen, the manager of the joint who is as knowledgeable and passionate about craft beer as anyone in the business. Stockhausen runs much of the daily operations at The Stein and is to thank for the execution of much of Hardy’s wonderful vision. We pulled Stockhausen aside from his duties for a moment to get a recommendation on a splendid mixed sixer of brews he has recently shelved at The Bier Stein. Here’s six beauts approved by Stockhausen that you might want to snag before they’re gone: Read More…

So… the meteorologist are saying something to the tune of 80 degrees this weekend in the Willamette Valley. Really?! Is summer going to grace us with a sneak preview? ‘Cause of late, the water levels have risen to the highest since 1996 when there was a big ol’ flood here. If you’ve been to the water front, you’ve probably noticed that the river isn’t far from the bridges. I digress…
