Pan a Flores, or ""bread to flowers"", is our ode to Saint Diego.Our primero holiday beer is a Strong Porter brewed with Mexican cajeta, Chiapas coffee, cinnamon, and Mexican chocolate.
6.3% ABV 23 IBU, seasonal
Winter is coming, and Chuckanut has your back. This Baltic Porter is rich, malty and flavorful, imparting notes of chocolate, port, coffee and raisins. It's as chunky as you'd expect, but still eminently drinkable due to its lager yeast and frigid fermentation process. (8.2% ABV)
The Duck-Rabbit Baltic Porter is deep, rich and velvety soft. A full blooded roasty character with almost no burnt flavor is balanced by complex alcohol notes. Strong (9% alcohol by volume) yet unfailingly subtle, this special brew rewards unhurried attention. Enjoy!

Emotional honey is a sour red aged for two years in an oak foudre. The beer was then transferred into mead barrels, from Vermont mead maker Artesano, and aged an additional 8 months. The finished beer is copper in color with a complex aroma including oak, dill and stone fruit. Emotional Honey has a lingering malt character in the flavor, an assertive tartness and long, dry finish.
Pelican head brewer Jason Schlebach took his inspiration for this robust, creamy stout from the Champurrado – a traditional Mexican drink made of chocolate, corn and milk – made by his grandmother. Heavy-hitting chocolate, Tanzanian cacao and Indonesian cinnamon shape the flavor profile of a beer Schlebach says is "like no other we've tasted before" (6% ABV).
Dark, malty and soft, Uncle Stepdad's was aged 10 months in bourbon and apple brandy barrels compliments of Clear Creek Distilling. Although plenty boozy (10.8% ABV), with a strong bourbon nose, this Imperial Stout's flavors are mellowed by rich vanilla, cocoa and coffee.
Dynasty is our massive and complex imperial stout - rich and full-bodied, with notes of chocolate, molasses, and fig. We'll be releasing cans and draft pours at the Taproom the week of December 10th, then sending it out to stores in Massachusetts soon after!
