PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Widmer Brothers is brewing up a special beer in honor of Portland Timbers head coach Caleb Porter.

The beer is called "Big Hearts and Brass Balls, a Caleb Porter."

It's named after a statement Porter made about the Timbers after a victory over FC Dallas in June.

Widmer's brewmasters say it's smooth with roasted malts and naked oats, giving it a subtle chocolate character.

Porter visited the brewery back in August to help with the recipe.

The beer will be on draught at two stations in JELD-WEN Field (the Widmer Brothers Southern Front and outside the Timbers Army sections) starting Sunday when the Timbers host the Seattle Sounders.

It will also be sold at several other locations around the city for a limited time:

  • Kingston Sports Bar & Grill, 2021 SW Morrison St.
  • Kells Brew Pub, 210 NW 21st Ave.
  • Cheerful Bullpen, 1730 SW Taylor St.
  • Gigantic Brewing, 5224 SE 26th Ave.
  • The Thirsty Lion, 71 SW 2nd Ave.
  • The Widmer Brothers Brewery and Pub, 955 N. Russell St.
