May is a big month for new Chuckanut beers, starting with our Mexican Style Lager! This great lager is made with barley and some Skagit Valley wheat malt for a dry finish  bringing visions of sandy white beaches and warm waters. For the first time we will be bottling this great beer to take on picnics and bbq's! Tapping May 1 and bottles available too just in time for Cinco de Mayo. Dortmunder is back! Our gold Dortmund export style lager is back by popular demand, make sure to get a pint to see why. Rauch Helles the lightly smoky Helles lager is made with Beechwood smoked Weyermann malts for a smooth delicately smoky flavor and aroma. The perfect food beer that goes great with any roasted fish or chicken dish or spicy foods too! Summer Pale Ale is a bright ale just in time for summer and good weather. This is new to the Chuckanut line up, you'll definitely have to get a taste of this bright mash up pale ale with a delicious hop presence. And to complete the new beer line up we've brought back Rye Lager to enjoy. Complex malt bill with a deep golden color and medium body this lager is slightly spicy from the use of rye malts!
