Chuckanut Brewery was awarded two Gold Medals for their Chuckanut beers at this year’s GABF. A Gold for Kolsch German style Ale and a Gold for Chuckanut Dunkel Lager were awarded at the Great American Beer Festival (GABF) in Denver, Colorado October 7, 2017. The GABF 2017 had 8,100 entries by 2,290 breweries and gave out 292 medals. It is the largest commercial beer competition in the world. Award-winning brewers received prestigious medals in 98 categories establishing the examples of each style in the U.S. A gold medal signifies the best example of each beer style. The entries were evaluated by 236 judges from 13 countries. This is the third time Chuckanut Dunkel (2010 and 2014) has been awarded a Gold medal at the GABF and the third time for Chuckanut Kolsch (2011 and 2015). They have both received Silver GABF medals too!


Chuckanut Bock is one of our all time favorite special rich beers that we have made over the years. Not always available and when it is we can't wait to taste it so this year we have decided to brew four different Bock style beers throughout the fall, winter and spring. We start with Bock, the dark, very malty and strong lager that is brewed across Germany and northern European countries. With over 6% ABV this beer will age well and taste great even when it's a year old. We've aged it about 3 months, giving a deceptively smooth taste. Special release of bottles of Bock will be available at the end of October with a tapping around October 27. Watch for the release of Baltic Porter (December), Doppelbock (February) & Maibock (May)!
