We partnered up with Firefox to brew a beer created by you, the public! Consumers paved the way for this beer + tech collaboration by providing feedback via an online survey. We asked beer drinkers what they wanted to see us brew all the way down to the hops, malts, ABV, IBU, and even color. After compiling all of the data, the very first Widmer + Firefox beer was born!
Be one of the first to try Open Sourcery Tropical IPA when we tap it at the Widmer Brothers Pub on Tuesday, May 22nd for our monthly Pints for Portland Happy Hour event. We have chosen Portland Women in Tech as our May Pints for Portland partner, and 100% of all beer proceeds between 4-7pm on 5/22 will benefit Portland Women in Tech and their purpose of strengthening the Portland women in tech community by offering: educational programs, partnerships, mentorships, resources and opportunities.
