A glass of Widmer's Hefeweizen glistening in the sun


A photograph of a Widmer Hefeweizen glowing in the rays of the sun. Initially the Widmer brothers offered only two beers, an altbier and a clear, filtered weizenbier. In 1986 Dublin Pub owner Carl Simpson asked for a third beer to offer his patrons, since the Widmers had limited time and space they sent him an unfiltered and impresively cloudy batch, creating the first American-style Hefeweizen. The new brew quickly became a big hit launching the brothers into craft brewing history.
