(Aside – If you can’t make it to Chuckanut night at Naked City, they’ll be doing a brewers night at the Beveridge Place Pub on Jan 22nd. We’ll post that later.)
Brewer Josh Pfriem will be at Naked City on January 13th to talk about Chuckanut beers and Chuckanut’s state-of-the-art brewing system. Naked City is also hoping that Mari Kemper, and maybe even her husband Will Kemper himself, will come to town for the event.
This is an unfortunately rare opportunity for us Southerners to sample a selection of their fine beer and learn about a brewery that may be new on the scene but has an old soul that dates back to the early days of the Washington craft beer scene. Maybe a big turnout at this event will convince them to explore more opportunities to put their beer on tap around Seattle. What the heck? Any excuse to visit the nice folks who serve fine beer at Naked City is a good one.
The event will feature a selection of Chuckanut’s world class lagers –Marzen, Pilsner, Rauchbier, Dortmunder and Vienna Lager. They’ll be raffling off swag as well – glassware, shirts, growlers, and such.
We keep meaning to write a profile about Chuckanut and we’ll get around to it one of these days, but here’s the short version. Chuckanut Brewery & Kitchen, located in Old Town, Bellingham, is a brewery and restaurant offering consistent, unique, quality driven craft beers and beverages with creative, locally and globally influenced Fresh American cuisine. The owners – Mari and Will Kemper – have brought quality craft beers to their customers across America, Mexico and Turkey since 1984 and are glad to bring guests their exceptional beer and food in an inspiring, friendly, and lively environment.
