Pike Brewing Releases Seasonal Session IPA


Seattle, WA — Pike No.4 Session IPA delivers well balanced hop flavors and aroma with a low ABV for summertime fun. This bright and floral session IPA is brewed with Skagit Valley Alba malt and the Ales for ALS proprietary hop blend. Together these ingredients create a clean and bright beer with citrus and stone fruit flavors and aroma.

The beer’s name, No. 4, commemorates Lou Gehrig’s retired jersey number. Pike Brewing Company is proud to be one of seven Washington State breweries who’ve joined Ales for ALS. Pike No.4 Session IPA is Pike Brewing Company’s summer seasonal beer release and will be available on draft and in 22 oz. dinner bottles throughout the summer.

Pike Brewing offers a tip of the hat to Loftus Ranches and Hopunion who created Ales for ALS, to Kraig Knutzen for growing our Alba barley and to Skagit Valley Malting for malting the barley.

Pike Brewing donates $1 per pint of Pike No. 4 Session IPA sold in our pub and suggests the same donation for pubs, bars and restaurants who pour this summer seasonal beer.
