It was a different kind of GABF (Great American Beer Festival) this year but the competition happened with over 8,800 beer entries and awarded 272 medals to 240 breweries across the USA. “This year’s GABF competition may have looked a little different, but the beers entered into the competition were as impressive and innovative as ever,” said Chris Swersey, competition manager, Great American Beer Festival. “This has arguably been one of the most challenging year breweries have ever faced, so we hope these awards serve as a symbol not only of brewing excellence but also the resiliency of the craft brewing community as a whole.” . Only four breweries won three or more medals in the competition and Chuckanut was among them!

Chuckanut won Gold for it’s Maibock, a rich, higher ABV lager beer aged more than 3 months. This beer has won multiple medals from WA Beer Awards and North American Beer Awards but this is the first time it was entered in the GABF. Chuckanut’s Maibock is deep golden, rich and malty with a full body and easy finish. The new Chuck Light, 103 calories per 12 oz pour, is light and refreshing and won a Silver medal this year. Chuckanut Rye Lager is a medium body, amber lager with a spicy finish due to the use of Rye malt. This northern inspired lager won Bronze at the GABF 2020. Chuckanut is happy to see all these beers recognized in the largest craft beer competition in the world!


We realize with cold weather and wind more common this time of year there are a lot of us who would prefer either delivery or curbside pick up. We have that option for you and it's easy to use. Right now Viking Foods and Door Dash are both delivering Chuckanut food. At our on line ordering platform you can order food and beverages for curbside pick up under our drive through and not even get wet! And we are currently working on a delivery service directly from Chuckanut within Bellingham city limits. This service would be able to deliver food and beverages. Watch our website, facebook and instagram for updates on the new service. And we would like to remind you that we are closed on Thanksgiving day, Thursday, November 26 and open again Friday, November 27 with an aged beer on tap!
