Get ready for a new Northwest standard from our friends at Widmer Brothers. Adding to their already mighty year round line up, Upheaval IPA is officially launching today. The Upheaval hop additions include the Alchemy blend for bittering; and Chinook, Simcoe, Brewer’s Gold, Willamette, and Nelson Sauvin varieties for aroma. Additionally, setting this IPA apart from the rest is that it’s not filtered after fermentation, resulting in a hazy, light copper appearance and elevating the yeast character.
To kick this new brew off right, we’ve teamed up with Widmer Brother’s to bring you the “Upheaval IPA” badge. Starting today through August 10th, check-in to at least one Upheaval IPA and this badge is yours. As with all new beers, it may take a little bit to reach your local beer purveyor, but keep checking as this one is worth it.
If you haven’t already, be sure to like Widmer Brothers on Untappd and be sure to follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!
