Brewery Release: WA: Bellingham: Coming Soon ... Chuckanut Mexican-style lager

Press Release

Chuckanut Brewery & Kitchen at 601 W. Holly St, Bellingham is celebrating Cinco De Mayo with sabroso food specials and exclusive Cinco De Mayo brews! Chuckanut’s Mexican-style lager with a twist will be on tap starting May 5th and will available for pints and growler fills through the weekend until May 8th.

What makes Chuckanut Brewery’s Mexican-style lager unique is the use of northwest grown and malted Alba Barley straight from Skagit Valley! Skagit Valley Malting Company teamed up with Chuckanut to create malt low in color by malting the grain at a low temperature for a longer duration. This created a lager that is light in color and similar to Mexican beers such as Corona, Pacifico, etc. It tastes wonderful with a slice of lime on a spring day!

Pair the Mexican-style lager with Ancho Chile Pulled Pork Tacos! The pork is braised with Ancho chili and served with pickled red cabbage slaw & radishes! If seafood sounds better, try a Ceviche Tostada with NW salmon sliced thin and marinated in lime juice on a fried corn tortilla with avocado crema & mango salsa! Great beer, delicious food and fun for everyone this Cinco De Mayo Weekend!
