Default Widmer Brothers Prosts

Those of you from the pacific NW are familiar with this brewery, and are problably familiar with the prosts they put on the bottle caps. I was wondering if any of you know where I can find a list of them, or if anyone wants to share some that they have seen on recent brew.

I've never thought about recording all the ones I've seen but it seems like a good idea. Drifter Pale ale is now one of my regular sixers to pick up when I'm buying beer, I'll have to start saving the caps

Drifter is definitely an awesome brew, I was strictly drinking stouts, and belgians for a while, and drifter brought me back to thepale ale scene

I think I had some of their Hefe and wasn't too fond. But i'm not a big fan of that style in general. I liked the bottles, but dont' recall any prosts on the caps. Anyone got a few samples?

You mean their American wheat? I feel its a bit of a stretch to call it a hefeweizen

I don't mind drinking it, if someone hands me one but I don't go out and buy it

I Love Widmer Hefe (aka American Wheat). One of my favorite commercial beers

You can find all past prosts on their website (there are a lot of them!), as well as submit your own prost.
