I heard that Widmer Brothers have tours of their Brewery. So I decided to check this out during the work week. I figured that there would be less people going on a tour during this time than over the weekend. During the work week there is only one tour during the day at 3 PM. I arrived round 2 PM... More

Unlike the winery's that are located in the beautiful country sides the brewery is located in the city. First impression was I have never seen so many large stainless tanks. The tour cost only $5.00 each unlike the $25.00 each at the winery. We are not beer drinkers but thought this is a new experience. The tour guide was a... More

The brewery has been growing over the years and the facility is deceptively large now. The tour is OK, pretty plain vanilla compared to Sam Adams or Goose Island for example. The tour ends with some samples in a tank room, no frills like seating. A moderate experience that will satisfy beer aficionados but may not be very exciting for... More

The title says it all... been to the tour 2x and were impressed each time. Good info on the beer brewing process, with the best part at the end of the tour. Free sampling of 4-5 beers, with souvenir shot glass to keep. You do need to make reservation for the tour in advance in case it is full, especially... More

Eh, it was okay. Cool facilities. I'll give them that much. But our tour guide was snarky and pompous. Maybe they were going for a quirky, blunt approach? But just came off as rude and uninformed unfortunately. Also, in the tasting room they didn't have any seating so everyone just awkwardly stood around. Was not very accommodating. If there intention... More

I booked a brewery tour about a week before my trip to Portland, and am very glad I did. The tour was short, only about 45 minutes, with most of the tour time being the tasting at the end. We got to see the main production facility for the continental states, and sample four 4oz beers at the end. Getting... More

The tour was very interesting! Our guide was fun and let us actually hold and smell different hops. The tour itself was pretty short, but well worth the time. Some of their brewing equipment is insane!

We took the brewery tour and had a great guide. He let us know the history of the company and of beer in general. The tasting afterward was really good and we got to kept the nifty miniature pint glass with the Widmer Logo-Beer lovers have to go!
