Chuckanut Brewery in Bellingham has done it again, this time bringing home a Bronze Medal from the Great American Beer Festival 2019 for Fest Bier. The GABF competition is only for U.S. breweries, and the competition for a GABF medal is as fierce as ever. Judges examined 9,497 beers from 2,295 American breweries.
Bronze Medal winning Fest Bier is a modern style, golden lager like the one served in Munich at their Oktoberfest celebration every year. Chuckanut Fest Bier emphasizes the use of Vienna malts for a smooth, quaffable Oktoberfest beer light in color with a 5.5% ABV and 22 IBUs. The aroma and flavor is lightly malty with a hint of Noble hops. This medium bodied lager finishes crisp and smooth for a beer to enjoy in multiple quantities in liter mugs! Chuckanut Fest Bier is delicious with any type of festival foods like brats, roasted chicken, roast beef and fish on a stick.
