Chuckanut Brewery

Bellingham, WA

Style: German/Czech Pilsner

Alcohol: 5%

IBUs: 36

Serving Style: Bottles, cans and kegs

Availability: Good year-round distribution throughout Washington


Appearance:   “Bright golden color. Good carbonation and a fluffy, white head.”

Aroma:  “Somewhat citrussy and, at the same time, seems malty—almost yeasty.”

Taste:  “I described the appearance as ‘bright,’ but I think that can be said about the flavor, too.  There’s a bitterness that probably gives it that crisp and refreshing taste.

Food Affinity:  “I drank a lot of beer with meals when I was in Thailand—Singha and Amarit, was the other label, I think. They tasted very good with that food that often was spicy-hot. I don’t think Czech food is particularly spicy, but that culture has spawned a style of beer (Pilsner) that should work wonderfully with Thai food or Szechwan and Hunan styles of Chinese food, too.
