Chuckanut Taps Italian Style Pilsner

Chuckanut Brewery is happy to report it has released a new batch of Italian Style Pilsner. It has been about a year since Chuckanut last tapped its rarely brewed Italian Pilsner.

In 2014 Birrificio Italiano invited Chuckanut Brewery to the Pils & Love Fest in Italy to pour Chuckanut Pilsner at their pilsner festival. On return Chuckanut brewers were excited to try brewing a beer similar to the Birrificio Italiano Tipopils. In Chuckanut Brewery’s rendition Italian grown Pilsner malt lays down a backbone that delivers a pleasant maltiness and a slight honey sweetness. But the star of the show is the Noble hops: Spalt and Tettnanger. These are added during the boil followed by a generous dry hop of German Spalt hops while in the fermentation tank. Chuckanut Italian Style Pilsner is highly drinkable with huge notes of spicy and herbal hops. A unique spin on a Pilsner beer, this style has become more popular in the past several years.

Chuckanut Italian Style Pilsner has a clean bitterness and lots of flavor and aromas. Because of that it’s terrific with oysters or steamed clams and mussels. Or try it just by itself for a real taste treat. Available in very limited supply in cans at both Chuckanut locations and on tap at Chuckanut’s P. Nut Beer Hall and South Nut Tap Room. You can find it on draft at selected accounts across Puget Sound and Portland, Or. It won’t last long, so get in for a refreshing glass ASAP!
