Day 202 Drink: Chuckanut Dortmunder
Will Kemper, the man behind Chuckanut Brewery and Kitchen in Bellingham, Wash., has been a brewmaster at Thomas Kemper, Aviator Ales, Norwester Brewing, Orange County Brewery, Mile High Brewing, Dock Street Brewing, Capital City Brewing, Lowell Brewing and Red Bell Brewing, in addition to having helped start small craft breweries in Mexico and Turkey.
Chuckanut Dortmunder is a golden colored beer with a clean crack of hops in the initial flavor. The malt quickly balances things out, leaving a refreshing aftertaste in this 5.5 percent alcohol by volume Washington brew.
