Widmer Brothers is an American brewery founded in 1984 in Portland, Oregon
by brothers Kurt and Rob Widmer. It is the 7th largest brewery in the U.S.,
and the largest in Oregon as part of the Craft Brands Alliance, Inc. In
1986, the Widmer Brothers introduced their Hefeweizen to America. It has
since gained much popularity throughout the states.
In November 2007, Redhook Ale Brewery and Widmer Brothers officially
announced plans to merge, forming a new company called Craft Brewers
Alliance. The new company will retain both Redhook and Widmer brands. The
two had already been working closely for several years through a licensing
agreement whereby Redhook brewed and distributed Widmer beers on the east
coast. Anheuser-Busch, which previously held a minority stake in both
companies, will continue to hold one in the new company.
Redhook is headquartered in Seattle, Washington with operations in
Woodinville, Washington and Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Upon completion of
the merger, Craft Brewers Alliance will be headquartered in Portland, with
offices in Seattle.
