Chuckanut Brewery & Kitchen Releases Polish “Grodziskie” Lager

Little known historic Polish Lager “Grodziskie” is a beer Chuckanut brewers fell in love with and decided to brew several years ago. It was a huge hit and has taken until now to have room in the tanks to make another batch. This very light, super effervescent low alcohol lager is sometimes called the champagne of Polish beer. The interesting part of this lager is the lightly smoky flavor due to oak-smoked malt in the recipe. The gentle and flavorful smoke accents adds depth to the light beer that makes a lasting impression. Moderate bitterness is evident and lingers throughout the dry finish to make this a very interesting brew.


Chuckanut Grodziskie is a great anytime beer with breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even at snack time! The ABV opens up the possibility of enjoying Grodziskie all day! Make sure to try this unusual lager when you see it on tap around the Northwest. It won’t last long and it may be a while before you see it again! Currently the Keller version is on tap at Chuckanut Brewery & Kitchen in Bellingham but the filtered, finished version will follow. Also available at South Nut in Skagit Valley and very limited accounts in the Seattle and Portland areas.

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. 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.

They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
