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.
