That’s right. Add brewmaster to the list of Caleb Porter’s many talents. The Portland Timbers head coach recently teamed up with Widmer Brothers Brewing Company to come up with their newest creation – Big Hearts and Brass Balls, A Caleb Porter.

Porter visited the Widmer Brothers pilot brewery at the Moda Center in late August to help brew this special recipe with Widmer Brothers brewer and longtime Timbers fan Ben Dobler: a smooth Porter brewed with roasted malts and naked oats that offers roast, subtle chocolate character, and a velvety mouthfeel. This highly drinkable beer is ready just in time for the heated Cascadia Cup rivalry match against the Seattle Sounders on Sunday, October 13th, and for the MLS Cup playoff push to close the 2013 regular season.

The name of the beer comes from a statement Porter made following the Timbers victory over FC Dallas in June.

“…they [the Timbers] continued to show me that they have big hearts and brass balls, because they know how to get it done when the game is on the line. That’s the mark of a good team.”

The beer will be available in limited release. There will be nine total kegs at JELD-WEN Field during the Timbers vs. Sounders game on October 13th – one on the Widmer Brothers Southern Front and eight at two beer portables (near section 101 and 110) behind the Timbers Army.

Additionally, the porter will be served at the following bars starting on 10/13:

  • Kingston
  • Kells 21
  • Thirsty Lion
  • Cheerful Bullpen
  • Gigantic Brewing

Get it while it lasts! Once it's gone, it's gone.

This weekend, the Portland Timbers and Seattle Sounders will face each other for the second time this season. The first match saw the Timbers draw even with Seattle Sounders at CenturyLink Field, and there is no doubt that many Timbers fans will once again make the trip.

Every match between the Timbers and Sounders is important, but this time around there is even more at stake. Not only is Portland looking to potentially reach the top of the MLS table, but the Timbers could also take sole possession of first place in the Cascadia Cup table. Arguably the most hyped match of the season, an expected 66,000 fans will be at CenturyLink Field to see the Sounders host the Timbers in a game that also features the first home match for new Sounders signing and USMNT forward Clint Dempsey.

As the season wears on, the costs of traveling to away Cascadia matches can start to add up. This season, our friends at 76 would like to support the fans that support the team. All you need to do is Instagram a shot of you traveling to or from this weekend's match with the hashtag #76roadtrip and you'll be eligible to win a $100 gas card and an autographed Timbers team jersey

@daarontaylor won for his post in May when he made the trip to Vancouver, B.C. to see the Timbers play the Whitecaps. Post your picture of your trip to Seattle for a chance to win! Not going to Seattle this time? Never fear, the contest will also be happening for the Cascadia Cup rivalry match October 6th at Vancouver.

Onward, Rose City!
