Chuckanut & Reuben’s Collab ‘6:1,’ a New Zealand Pilsner, Set to be Tapped

In honor of Chuckanut Brewery’s friend Reuben’s Brews 10th Anniversary, the two breweries have collaborated together to brew a New Zealand Pilsner called 6:1.

The tapping of this great Pilsner style lager will happen at Chuckanut’s Beer Hall (P. Nut) on Wednesday, July 20 starting at 5 p.m. The celebration will continue til 7 p.m. with reps from both breweries  at 920 SE Caruthers St in Portland’s Division district to chat about the beer and the breweries.

6:1 New Zealand Pilsner is hopped with Nelson Sauvin and Nectaron, two southern hemisphere varieties known for their intense aromas of wine grapes and tropical fruit. A bit of flaked rice in the mash lightens the body, ultimately producing a beer that’s bright, biscuity and well suited for summer.

The 6:1 references the fact that for every person in New Zealand there are six sheep! On draught at the P. Nut Beer Hall in limited supplies along with a small amount of 16 oz cans for off site consumption. 6:1 New Zealand Pilsner is already on tap at Chuckanut’s South Nut Tap Room in Skagit Valley, 11937 Higgins Airport Way, Burlington, WA.
