Chuckanut Brewery & Kitchen in Bellingham and Chuckanut’s new South Nut Brewery in the heart of Skagit Valley will be open to the public on February 25th noon til 3 pm for a statewide-organized open house for all Washington State breweries. Every year the Washington Beer Commission aims to promote Washington beer by organizing this event giving the public an opportunity to explore their local breweries. Chuckanut’s Breweries will be among hundreds of Washington breweries to give the community a sneak peak of their facilities and brewing process. And the Port of Skagit where Chuckanut’s South Nut is located will have other agriculture related industries open their doors as well. This includes Skagit Valley Malting Company, Skagit Valley College’ Cardinal Brewing Program and the new Skagit Mills all within a block of Chuckanut’s Skagit location. Random Acts of Food truck will be on hand for those that work up an appetite while out and about at the Port!
At the Chuckanut Brewery open houses informal free tours will be given at 12 and 1:30pm. Chuckanut brewers and representatives will be there to guide the tour and discuss everything related to the art of brewing Chuckanut beer. This is a unique opportunity to see Chuckanut’s hi-tech equipment and learn more about what makes Chuckanut beers award winning. If you are curious to taste the distinctive flavor of Chuckanut beers or smell the mouth-watering aromas, Keller bier (beer taken directly from the fermentation tanks) samples will be given to those 21 and over.
This is a free event and a great learning experience for all, so make the most of it! After your tour of North Nut, step into the Chuckanut Kitchen where you can order fresh and local cuisine to pair with your favorite Chuckanut beer on tap! Or if you are at South Nut head into the cozy Tap Room for a pint and get some grub from Random Acts of Food truck just outside. You may even want to purchase a souvenir as a remembrance of the experience from the collection of schwag!
