April is the Skagit Tulip Festival and with it the Skagit Farm to Pint Roadshow that benefits Viva Farms (an organization that empowers aspiring and limited-resource farmers by providing bilingual training in holistic organic farming practices). Chuckanut’s Skagit Tulip Ale is a delightful California Common using a blend of old world Noble & new world hops with a mix of German and Skagit Valley malts to create an ale with a smooth malty center. The use of triticale (wheat/rye hybrid) and Talisman Pilsner malts from Skagit Valley Malting makes this blonde ale an uncomplicated and hoppy beer with a crispy, dry finish.
California Common (A.K.A. Steam Beer) is a beer brewed with lager yeast but fermented at ale temperatures. It’s the perfect spring ale available for the Farm to Pint Roadshow supporting Viva Farms. Farm to Pint Roadshow in Skagit Valley is part of the celebration of the Skagit Tulip Festival. If you want to pair Skagit Tulip Ale with food it’s a great accompaniment to seafood dishes and chowders. But it’s also the perfect beer to enjoy on its own!
Available on draft and in cans at accounts around Puget Sound and the Portland area. Cans of Skagit Tulip Ale are available at the Chuckanut P. Nut (Portland) Beer Hall and South Nut (Skagit Valley) Tap Room, and in very limited accounts in Bellingham. Wherever you find cans get some as supplies won’t last long!
