This year Chuckanut Brewery from Bellingham, Wash. was richly rewarded with five major medals at the North American Beer Awards Competition. This prestigious, long-standing beer competition in its 22nd year supports the Craft Brewers Association standard of blind tasting judging done by BJCP judges from around the nation. Beers across America enter the competition in 99 categories. Chuckanut won Gold for it’s Alt Bier (German-style ale) and Dunkel Lager. The Vienna Lager and Doppelbock Lager each won a Silver Medal and Chuckanut’s Marzen Lager won a Bronze Medal. These beers have won at NABA in the past as well.
The Annual Mountain Brewers Beer Fest was held the weekend of June 1-3rd in Idaho celebrating craft beer and at the same time holds a beer competition. In 2017 there were over 1,700 beers entered into the competition. Chuckanut Brewery holds numerous medals from past NABA competitions and was thrilled to receive recognition again this year for its entries. Some of the beers that were awarded medals are on tap at both South (Skagit Valley) and North (Bellingham) Nuts as well as at selected accounts across Puget Sound. Now would be an excellent time to try them and see if you agree with the NABA!
