When most beer lovers think of Chuckanut Brewery, they envision crisp, light lagers, but that’s not the only kind of beer the brewery creates. That’s just mostly what the brewery creates. Sometimes they deviate and do something different, like this: a stout aged in whiskey barrels from Westland Distillery (pictured above).
Chuckanut Brewery will feature that beer at its upcoming celebration of the fall and the harvest season: Chuckanut Fall Harvest Fest. The event is on Saturday, October 22nd and takes place at both Chuckanut locations: Burlington and Portland. Here’s more information straight from the brewery:
Fall is in the air and Chuckanut Brewery is celebrating at both the South Nut Tap Room in Skagit Valley and P. Nut Beer Hall in Portland, OR. The Fest will take place on October 22 from noon to close.
With cool nights and balmy days the tapping of Chuckanut Barrel Aged Stout at the Fest is a welcome addition to the Chuckanut beer line up and part of the big celebration. This strong stout has been aged in Chuckanut’s next door neighbor Westland Distillery’s oak barrels! And at P. Nut The Farmer and the Beast will bring their amazing smash burgers and sandwiches for the hungry (food is limited so come early).
At South Nut there will be a collection of over a dozen local artisans selling their wares along with the Plant Lady, Boldly Grown Farm (pumpkins and veggies), Sly & Son Sourdough Baker, the Waffle lady (waffles, nut butters and jams)! There will be a canned Food Drive for the Skagit Food Bank at South Nut and the Portland Food Bank at P. Nut, bring some cans to donate and get a discount off your beer!
Both locations will open at noon for the festivities and all ages are welcome, free of charge. Come out and celebrate the fall, seating is inside and outside at P. Nut and South Nut. There’s a little of everything at this fall harvest, join in and celebrate!
