Stock Your Beer While Stocking Your Pantry - Support Your Local Breweries!

/
Skagitonians getting ready to hunker down at home should think about adding beer to their list of must-haves.  People have been clearing the grocery aisles of toilet paper, pasta, and chicken at Fred Meyer's and Costco in Burlington.  Now, beer and wine are the next items on the list for many of us as we experience this global public health crisis - coronavirus pandemic.

The New Face of Ragged and Right Cider Project

/
Whatever you do and whatever you make, according to Ragged and Right’s head cider maker Jacob Mitchell, it’s all about “finding the perfect balance”. Starting in 2017 as an offshoot of Farmstrong Brewing, Ragged and Right Cider project (RRCP) started as a passion project. Eventually, the increased demands of beer expansion reduced the brand to limited flavors exclusively available inside the Mount Vernon taproom. Three months ago Farmstrong Brewing hired on Jacob Mitchell to not only assist in the brewery but to also take over, reimagine, and revitalize the Ragged and Right Cider Project.

Chuckanut's New Beers for Early Spring

/
Spring is in the air, the sun is showing its bright face bringing beer to our mind! Chuckanut has the crispies to keep you going as the weather warms and you get more active. The newest Chuckanut collaboration is with Zeeks Pizza called Zealander Pilsner. The big kahuna of this sessionable pilsner is the New Zealand grown hops Rakau and Wai-Iti. These hops play together to give the beer a mixture of stonefruit, lemon and lime notes against a malt backbone of classic German Weyermann malts. Crisp, hoppy, and bold the Zealander Pilsner is begging to be had with your next slice of pizza.
