New Beer Releases

Tulip Valley Pilsner (5.4 ABV / 35 IBU) The official beer of the 2022 Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. Munich and Northwest 2 row malts are balanced with traditional Bavarian Hallertau hops for an easy drinking pilsner with a slight malt backbone.

Whistle Lake Weizen (ABV 5.3% / IBU 18)   Our award-winning Hefeweizen has a cloudy golden color and a full, fruity aroma. Bavarian yeast produces striking banana & clove flavors and a sneaky bubblegum note. This summertime favorite is light-bodied with a flavorful snap and mild tartness finishing relatively dry – the perfect thirst quencher!

Chuckanut Brewery Wins 3 Medals at GABF 2020

The Great American Beer Festival just announced that Chuckanut Brewery has won 3 medals for their lager beers in 2020. The virtual festival this year had over 8,800 beers entered and awarded 272 medals to 240 breweries across the country for the best beers in 91 categories covering 170 different styles of beers. “This year’s GABF competition may have looked a little different, but the beers entered into the competition were as impressive and innovative as ever,” said Chris Swersey, competition manager, Great American Beer Festival. “This has arguably been one of the most challenging years breweries have ever faced, so we hope these awards serve as a symbol not only of brewing excellence but also the resiliency of the craft brewing community as a whole.” . There were 115 judges from 21 states judging an average number of 97 beer per category! There were only four breweries who won three or more medals in the competition and Chuckanut was among them!

Chuckanut won Gold for it’s Maibock, a rich, higher ABV lager beer aged more than 3 months. This beer has won multiple medals from WA Beer Awards and North American Beer Awards but this is the first time it was entered in the GABF. Chuckanut’s spring Maibock is deep golden, rich and malty with a full body and easy finish. The new Chuck Light, 103 calories per 12 oz pour, is light and refreshing and it won a Silver medal this year. It’s sessionable toasty, lightly malty flavor is flavorful and surprisingly satisfying even with its low ABV. Chuckanut Rye Lager is a medium body, amber lager with a spicy finish due to the use of Rye malt. This northern inspired lager won Bronze at the GABF 2020 but has won multiple awards at the WA Beer Awards and the North American Beer Awards in the past. Chuckanut is happy to see all these beers recognized in the largest craft beer competition in the world!
