I find widmer's pale ale and black IPA to be severely underrated. That said, chico is so consistent that I have never even tried using 1010.

AFAIK, 1010 has German origins.

+1.  I always heard it was more or less an alt strain.

I have read that it is the Widmer strain, but made its way from Zum Uerige.

1007 is more like the Uerige strain. 1010 is what it morphed into.
