Bastion Brewing Flying High

After retiring from 22 years as a Naval aviator from Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, Joe Behan was ready to become his own boss. The would-be entrepreneur, married to Cristine, who is also a Naval aviator, cast about for the right business to which he could apply his enthusiasm and discipline. A homebrewer since he was stationed in Hawaii in 1994, the idea of a craft brewery, surprisingly, didn’t come to him until well past looking at ideas like garage floor castings and a few other non-starters.

March Beers from Chuckanut Brewery

/
March is known for many kinds of beers and Chuckanut will be releasing a lot of them and more soon. Marzen Lager is known as the March beer in Germany and Chuckanut’s Marzen is an award winner. St Paddy’s is the Irish celebration featuring Irish Stout, a favorite cold weather ale. And this March Chuckanut will release the first in their Brewers Namesake Series with our Marine Veteran Rick’s Lager, an orange colored lager with hoppy citrus pithy notes and a toasty finish. Another March beer is a collaboration with the new Twin Sisters Brewing in Bellingham. Before they have their brewery up and going we collaborated on an English style bitter called Nutty Sisters with them.
