It’s getting to be Oktoberfest time and Chuckanut Brewery is celebrating. We’ve been working on our recipe all year and now we are releasing our golden Fest Bier all over Puget Sound. Chuckanut Brewery & Kitchen (North Nut), Bellingham, and Chuckanut Brewery’s South Nut Tap Room at the Port of Skagit Airport will be tapping Fest Bier 2017 on September 1, Labor Day Weekend (both sites will be open all weekend long). Chuckanut Fest is a golden lager, brewed with a large portion of Vienna malts for a smooth and rich beer. The aroma and flavor are malty and lightly sweet and just enough noble hops to balance this special lager. Fest is a medium bodied beer that finishes crisp and smooth with an ABV of 5.5%.
Chuckanut Fest is a great food beer, malt forward and food friendly. It’s a wonderful match to typical Oktoberfest foods like sausages, grilled fish, roasted chicken, and roast pork. Oktoberfest is a celebration of the fall and there are several businesses that will be celebrating with Chuckanut Fest Bier 2017 including Teku Tavern (September 29), Frolic (September 16), Altstadt (September 16) and others. Check your favorite pub to see if they will be celebrating, or visit one of the Chuckanut sites before November to try this delicious, thoroughly enjoyable drinking beer, prost!
