Chuckanut Brewery continues its series of Single Hop Lager with each rendition showcasing a different, unique single hop. For this go-round, Chuckanut went with Trident Hops, a blend of three Pacific Northwest new hop varietals from Hopsteiner.
Single Hop Lager – Trident uses a special hop blend that creates a hop forward punch of citrus, tropical and passion fruit hop flavor characteristics and aromas. Trident imparts a unique and potent profile to Chuckanut’s Single Hop Lager in a very bold way!
Chuckanut Brewery is constantly trying to learn more about beer ingredients. Single Hop Lager is an opportunity to master more knowledge about noble hop varietals that are used and experimented with in the US and other parts of the world. By using a simple malt bill & clean lager yeast it allows the hops to shine through. The excitement of getting to know these hops and learning more about how they affect beer is a great opportunity for both Chuckanut brewers and Chuckanut beer drinkers. Chuckanut believes it’s all part of learning more about hops and enjoying the beer in the process too, cheers! – Chuckanut Brewery
Chuckanut Brewery’s Single Hop Lager – Trident will be available in 500mnL bottles around the Northwest including Oregon and Washington. The beer will also be on tap at both Chuckanut locations and in selected accounts in the area.
