Our new South Nut Brewery is getting ready to keg up the first batch of Pilsner! We love that we can make twice the amount of beer in the same amount of time as this facility has a 20 bbl brewhouse as opposed to our 10 bbl one in Bellingham. And we are so happy about how it's all running we will start having tours come February! The WA Brewers Open House on February 18 will be the kick off for our brewery tours that will happen on the third Saturday of every month at noon. So make sure to mark it in your calendar and we'll try to remind you on our facebook and website.
LOTS OF GREAT SCHWAG
If you didn't receive some great Chuckanut Schwag over the holidays not to worry, we still have lots to choose from. We've added some cool red and dark grey trucker hats and continue to stock our great ladies tbacks, sweatshirts, and the ever popular zippered hoodies plus more. Stop by either South or North to pick up your souvenirs today.

It's been really cold this winter so we've got some great healthy local specials to warm you up! Chef Jeff came up with a great "Hawaiian Oxtail Soup" to bring memories of his Hawaiian holiday trip back to Bellingham. Slow-cooked Skagit Valley oxtail, bone broth, ginger, star anise, orange peel, daikon radish, organic mushrooms, & mustard greens makes for an interesting soup! Our Miso Chicken Pizza uses our house made organic red miso and ginger sauce, chicken & edamame! For your sweet tooth try the Gingerbread Brulee!

And early warning we'll be over at the Thirsty Hop February 2nd 6-8 pm for the Bellingham Tap Takeover in Kirland! Reps from Chuckanut will be at both events to answer your questions and talk Chuckanut Beer!
CHUCKANUT OWNERS VISIT ISTANBUL AND LONDON
Some of you may remember owners Mari and Will Kemper have been active in the craft beer scene since the 1980's and visit other brewers quite often. This December they headed back to Istanbul where Will put in the first Brewpub and then Craft Brewery in Turkey! They went to visit the original owners that now have The Populist a beautiful brewpub with a small brewery called Torch. Then they traveled over to London and went to visit with old friend Mark Gloyens, owner of Rebellion Brewery and his head brewer Ed. Several years ago Ed came and brewed a collaboration at Chuckanut (Roasted Nuts). Rebellion continues to brew it's rendition of Roasted Nuts and it was delicious!
