Will Kemper not only comes from a brewing family, he's also perhaps one of the most educated brewers in the area. Kemper has a BS is Chemical Engineering degree, and is a graduate of the first Masterbrewers Program from the University of California at Davis. He also studied in London at the Institute of Brewing and Distilling. Not only are Chuckanut's beers scientifically astute, they maintain the traditions of British and Belgian Beer styles.
Chuckanut Brewery and Kitchen practices sustainability, including a computerized brewing system which reduces water and power use. Spent grain is also sent to local farmers, increasing the amount of product recycled by the brewery. These practices transition into the kitchen at the brewpub, especially on the “Locavore” menu which features dishes prepared with local ingredients and changes each month. The taproom is industrial chic, with warm yellow walls, and local artwork featured on the walls. In the summer, tables in the taproom are decked out with wildflowers, and canoes and snowshoes hang from the ceiling. Check out this brewery during HoPPY hour from 4-6 pm Sunday through Thursday.
