Chuli Stout brewed by the Denali Brewing Company

Chuli Stout brewed by the Denali Brewing Company in Talkeetna, Alaska          

Over its long history, stout has served many purposes, from a doctor-recommended cure-all to an aperitif for Russian royalty. Somewhere in the middle is Chuli Stout, a dry Irish style stout, which takes its name from the mighty Chulitna River. An ample amount of roasted barley imparts dry, coffee-like flavors, while flaked barley adds smoothness and body. And if that weren’t enough, Chuli Stout is conditioned and served with nitrogen, amplifying smoothness and creating that rich, dense, classic stout pour. ABV:5.9%. IBUs: 55

Beer Review from Beer Advocate
Appearance - Jet black color always has a great creamy head between 1/3-3/4" with great retention and rather thin for the style

Aroma - Rather uninspiring smell of toasty malts, very little else to comment on here, of course this is in line with the style

Taste - Wow, much better than the smell, a cornucopia of different malty flavors from rich complex dark malts to lighter malts with a more tart, spicy flavor near the finish, much more flavor than the Guinnesses of the world.

Mouthfeel - Light with a slight chewiness that always makes you smack your lips and suck the delicious nitro foam off your upper lip.

Overall - an excellent example of the style that is always welcome as a final beer of the night when I am out and about throughout Anchorage, Its mouthfeel and appearance is very much in line with Guinness, with a more complex flavor and a little more ABV to back it up.

The Story of Denali Brewing Company
Denali Brewing Company is a locally owned microbrewery located in Talkeetna, Alaska, in the heart of the upper Susitna Valley. Denali Brewing Company began as two dreams.

Ever since coming to Alaska from the fertile craft beer grounds of Oregon in 1996, general manager Sassan Mossanen just knew that Talkeetna was thirsty for a brewery of its own. During the ensuing years, he made several attempts at filling the obvious gap. Along the way he also built his own cabin up the tracks from town, established a successful construction company, and found time to homebrew on the side.

All the while, brewer Boe Barnett was living 250 miles north of Talkeetna, in the Goldstream Valley outside Fairbanks, Alaska. He was teaching English at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, writing and publishing poetry, and brewing more beer than any one person should ever be allowed to consume on his own. He too had made several attempts at opening a local brewery. Ideas ranged from brewing in a little red cabin next to the main dog mushing trail through the heart of Goldstream Valley, to a more conventional operation located in the city’s industrial zone. The idea of brewery in a hip little town like Talkeetna, however, was too good to pass up.

The current incarnation of Denali Brewing Company was created in December of 2007, when the two partners met over a keg of Boe’s homebrewed pilsner. Sassan spoke of his passion for the community of Talkeetna and how its proud, independent minded citizens had, for years, been yearning for a brewery of their own. Boe spoke of his desire to bridge the gap between beer geeks and regular folks who just like to drink beer.

Fast forward to late winter 2009. Boe and his family now call Talkeetna home. Denali Brewing Company has found its own home on Main Street in downtown Talkeetna. The dream of bringing craft beer to the northern Susitna Valley is being turned into a reality. We look forward to sharing our dream with you during your next visit to Talkeetna, Denali National Park, or any of the other world-class attractions south-central Alaska has to offer.
