Chuckanut Puts Barleywine on Tap for 1st Time

For the first time Chuckanut Brewery has released a Barleywine. Originally brewed as a collaboration with North Fork Brewery almost one year ago this is a robust beer worth waiting for. Reddish gold in color and amazingly smooth for a high alcohol 10.3% ale, Chuckanut Barleywine is a beer for celebrating the season. Lots of wine grapes, fruit and toffee flavors collide with a dry smooth finish.

Chuckanut’s Barleywine has the characteristics of both American and English styles of this kind of very old strong ale.

A balance of sweetness from the large percentage of Vienna malts that were used and a slight bitterness from noble hops mingle together for a warming palate and balanced flavors. Currently on tap at both P. Nut Beer Hall in Portland and South Nut Tap Room in Skagit Valley.

This is a memorable, one-of-a-kind, deceptively rich beer that will impress beyond the final sip. It will soon be available at very limited accounts in Puget Sound, Portland and West Coast big beer festivals.
