It's holiday time and Chuckanut Brewery has your back when it comes to beers for the holidays. Both locations are serving up Schwarz Bier (black lager), British Brown Ale (light brown nutty ale), and Smoke Porter (dark mahogany ale) for your winter pleasure. Our Schwarz has got bitter chocolate and bready flavors with an espresso like finish that's dry, and smooth. Similar to a stout but crisper in the finish. The Smoke Porter has rich chocolate malt flavors paired with German Beechwood smoked malt ending in a round toffee finish. And the British Brown has a pleasant nutty aftertaste that makes this beer friendly and inviting. Grab a growler for your next party or take home some bottled Pilsner, Vienna Lager, or Kolsch just to have anytime day or night!


Yay, it's finally started! After so many delays we have started brewing at South Nut. First up is our world famous Pilsner Lager. The first four tanks will take our Pilsner to help us feed the demand of so many that would like to drink it at their favorite places around the Sound. Once we get a good jump on that we'll be working out what to brew next. North Nut continues to brew our Kolsch and specialty styles but Pilsner will be brewed at South Nut. If you haven't been over to our Tap Room at the Port of Skagit come in on a Wednesday when the brewers are making their magic and watch them through the brewhouse plate glass windows!

If you have time to make it to the fundraiser with WA Beers at Diamond Knot Brewpub in Mountlake Terrace you can drink beer and give to your community. The beer tasting event is December 7 from 6-8 pm. Make sure to stop in and try our Marzen Lager that will be on tap and say hi to some of us from Chuckanut Brewery. We'll be around to chat up beer and brewing and tell you all about what Chuckanut is up to!


It's always fun to think about how to make your holiday meals more inviting and pairing beers to each of the courses can really enhance your party experience. Don't forget there's more to life than IPA, there's a world of beers both local and from far away places that can make your meal more fun. Go the whole spectrum, from light to dark, to set off what you have to offer on your holiday menu. Mixing and matching Lagers and Ales keeps things lively, especially if you serve them in different styles of glasses. Just keep in mind get a designated driver or take a taxi and be a responsible drinker!

Happy Holidays from all of Us at Chuckanut Brewery!!
