Received: Widmer 3-pack

This package arrived Thursday from Widmer Brothers:

Widmer 3-pack: Oatmeal Porter, Pitch Black IPA, Nelson Imperial IPA

A bottle each of Pitch Black IPA, Nelson Imperial IPA, and the new Oatmeal Porter, along with a sample bottle of “Bro-Oats” (oats that have been custom roasted specifically for Widmer by Briess Malting) and a Widmer goblet.

The three bees are together as representing the “Series 924” offerings, which are “special, but accessible, high-end craft beers” named after the Widmer brewery address of 924 Russell Street in Portland. Pitch Black and Nelson are year-round beers while Oatmeal Porter is the first of three limited-edition beers coming out this year.

I’ve had the first two, of course (though apparently I’ve only reviewed Pitch Black IPA¬†and not Nelson Imperial IPA), and I’m excited to try the Oatmeal Porter largely because of the custom-roasted oats angle. (Yes, it’s a beer geek thing.)
