PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

When the Portland Timbers take on Columbus Crew this weekend, more than just the MLS Cup will be on the line. The outcome will also result in a unique brew.

Portland-based Widmer Brothers Brewing placed a bet with Columbus Brewing Company on which city will come out on top.

The brewery that loses the bet will have to host the other brewery to come up with a collaborative beer that will be named after the winning team.

The host brewery will provide all of the equipment and ingredients for the beer.

That means if the Timbers win, fans can expect to see a special Timbers-themed beer made by Columbus Brewing and vice versa.

Widmer Brothers is a sponsor of the Timbers and earlier this year released a special co-branded Hefeweizen in honor of the team.

The MLS Cup Final is Sunday, Dec. 6 at 1 p.m.
