Widmer, co-founder of Widmer Brothers Brewing will stand down at the end of this year. He will subsequently assume the honorary title of chairman emeritus of the company.

Widmer was president, CEO and chairman of Widmer Brothers Brewing until the company's merger with Redhook Brewery to form CBA in 2008.

“Since my brother Rob and I founded Widmer Brothers Brewing over 31 years ago, this extraordinary industry … has grown and evolved in ways I couldn’t even imagine,” said Widmer. “Many of us who set the foundation for today’s booming craft beer market are thinking about the next chapter in our lives… . While I’ll miss walking into my office at the brewery every day, I’m admittedly looking forward to more time with my family.”

Publicly-listed CBA has started to look for a new chairman, with the position expected to be filled in time for the start of 2016.
