“Chuckanut Brewery Open House – Saturday, February 26th from 12-4pm”
The Washington Beer Commission has organized a statewide Open House for all breweries in the state of Washington who choose to participate. This is a real treat for the huge supportive craft beer community we have here in the Northwest. The state wide Open House coincides with the Washington Beer Commission’s mission to promote Washington Beer by presenting a great opportunity for Washingtonians to go get a behind the scenes look at their local breweries.

Chuckanut Brewery is no stranger to the Bellingham Community, open for service seven days a week and offering brewery tours every six weeks during the year, but this is a special opportunity to get to know us and our beers even better. Our brewers will be here to answer questions and discuss the more technical side of our beers and the brewing process. Co-owner and operator, Mari Kemper, will be welcoming guests with the lighter and more fun side of beer; with tips and techniques for drinking it! Did you know that using the right beer glass can offer a more complete and satisfying beer-drinking experience? Well, it’s true and Mari will be here to discuss the rationale behind using different glassware for different styles of beer and to give you tips for choosing the right one. Mari will also be offering guests suggestions for pairing beers with food; if you pair them correctly, you can bring out some really great flavors in your beer and food that could otherwise go unrecognized. It will be fun learning experience for everyone and it’s FREE!

Chuckanut Brewery and Kitchen, located at 601 W Holly St, Bellingham, is a brewery and restaurant offering a full-service menu. Started by the originators of Thomas Kemper Brewery in 1984, Mari and Will Kemper returned from traveling to foreign locations to welcome guests to their brewery & restaurant every day of the week. Well known for their European style award winning Lagers and Ales, Chuckanut Brewery & Kitchen was awarded National Small Brewpub/Brewer of the Year 2009.
