With Covid upon us in 2020 Chuckanut Brewery has decided to change up how to celebrate Oktoberfest and all that is fall in Bellingham and Whatcom County. September 18-20 there will be specially priced liter mugs of Chuckanut German Style beers, Oktoberfest decorations and aged beer. And the celebrations will take place at both North (Bellingham noon-8 p.m.) and South (Port of Skagit 1-6 p.m.) Nuts.
Everyone is encouraged to come visit in their best German dress including lederhosen, dirndls and the whole nine yards. If you come in costume you’ll get $1 off your first beer. This year we can still celebrate but we will have a socially distanced celebration, with masks required when not sitting and no Chicken Dance, singing or games. But we can still have fun at our tables of 5 or less drinking out favorite Chuckanut beers.
As usual both Chuckanut locations will have Fest Bier 2020, Dunkel Lager, Helles Lager, Maibock, Vienna Lager, and various other German style lagers as well as aged Doppelbock on tap. Liter mugs will be discounted and your Fest Bier will be served in a half liter mug! At North Nut there will be German inspired food specials including a Brat Plate and Brat Calzone. Enjoy your Oktoberfest in a whole new way and celebrate the coming of fall. Even though Germany is not having their annual Munich Oktoberfest Chuckanut still has an updated version at North and South Nut. Prost!
Chuckanut Brewery & Kitchen, located at 601 West Holly St, Bellingham, was awarded the National Small Brewpub/Brewer of the Year 2009 and National Small Brewery/Brewer of the Year 2011 at the Great American Beer Festival. Currently, both locations offer outdoor seating (covered and waterside) as well as to-go pick-up for kegs, growlers and bottles of Chuckanut beer. A full food menu is available at North Nut. The South Nut Tap Room at 11937 Higgins Airport Way, Burlington is located at the Port of Skagit. Now both locations are open 7 days per week: North Nut (Monday-Sunday 12-8 pm) and South Nut (Monday-Thursday 3-6 pm and Friday-Sunday 1-6 pm) during phase 2 of Covid rules.
