Photo of the Week

Bill from it’s Pub Night

The other night I was graciously invited to a Blazers game at the Rose Garden courtesy of the Widmer Brothers to check out a new beer brewed exclusively for the press box – Off The Record Pale Ale. It’s a nice Pale and a unique thing to do by the Widmer Bros but perhaps the highlight of the evening was Bill from the It’s Pub Night blog who is apparently a big lover of fruit in his beer. In the photo above he was more than happy to demonstrate how to lemon your Hefeweizen.

    Scurvy can be a real problem if you don’t get enough vitamin C. I had a hef without lemon earlier, I figured it was good to try it with lemon on Widmer’s dime since it was offered to me. Lemon Hef laid the groundwork for the modern wave of beer cocktails. I’m sure I could think of a fourth excuse if I had enough time.
