Product Review: Widmer Brothers Brewing SXNW

The latest release from Widmer Brothers is SXNW, a creative play on the “South By Southwest (SXSW)” interactive, film and music conference held annually in Austin, Texas.

It’s called SXNW (South by Northwest) and it joins the Widmer Brothers Brewing limited-edition Brothers’ Reserve series, which showcases the brewery’s innovation in craft brewing. It’s inspired by brewmaster Joe Casey, who once called New Mexico home, highlights the flavor and character of the American Southwest, yet is brewed in true Northwest fashion. SXNW emphasizes the best of both regions, resulting in ale that is dark and complex, layered with chocolate, pecans and cinnamon spice, and underscored by subtle chili heat.

The brew is available in 22-ounce bottles and on draught in limited quantities.
