drkbrstemDoppelbock is a beer rarely brewed in America but Chuckanut Brewery has brewed their rendition of this traditional German lager and aged it over 90 days at very cold temperatures. Chuckanut’s new Doppelbock will be tapped at both Chuckanut Brewery & Kitchen in Bellingham and the new Chuckanut South Nut Tap Room at the Port of Skagit on January 20.

Chuckanut Doppelbock is a lager beer that’s rich and full of chocolate, toffee and dried stone fruit flavors with a higher alcohol of 7.4% ABV. Even with the higher alcohol levels this lager finishes smooth and makes for a rich beer easy to drink. Great in the winter weather Doppelbock is great in combination with chili or any kind of sausages. It’s also great and can hold up to braised & roasted meats with rich sauces. Chuckanut Doppelbock will be available at special events around Seattle including Chuckanut Brewer’s Night a Beer Junction in West Seattle February 9 and Hops & Props Fundraiser at the Boeing Flight Museum February 25.
