SEATTLE — Pike is brewing a special batch of Pike Space Needle IPA featuring Cascade and Centennial fresh hops from Chelan Valley Hops, the only commercial hop farm with irrigation rights to the glacial waters of Lake Chelan. This limited-edition fresh hop Space Needle IPA will be available exclusively on draft at Pike Brewing Company’s The Pike Pub and Tankard & Tun, and atop the Space Needle itself. The Space Needle’s ongoing $100 million renovation includes a beautiful new observation deck featuring glass floors which is now open, providing visitors with sweeping views of the city and the chance to enjoy a Pike beer 500-feet in the sky! Look for this beer to hit draft lines the last week of September. Label art attached.
Citra Fresh Hops Featured in 2018 Pike Wolf in the Woods IPA
This week, we’re headed to Yakima Valley to collect fresh Citra hops from Perrault Farms for Pike’s second fresh hop IPA of the season: Pike Wolf in the Woods. With both fresh hop beers, Pike collects the farm fresh hops and brews the same day, insuring quality, freshness, and optimal aroma on the final product. Look for Pike Wolf in the Woods to begin pouring on draft the last week of September at The Pike Pub, Tankard & Tun, and throughout Washington state. Label art attached.
Brewery Beer Garden Extends Season
Due to the extreme popularity of Pike’s Summer Brewery Beer Garden, the drinking-in-semi-outdoors-season is getting a month-long extension! On weekends now through September 30th, Pike’s brewery doors to Post Alley are open, inviting guests to sit and sip among the tanks and kegs in our Brewery Beer Garden! In addition to regular service at The Pike Pub and Tankard & Tun, guests can choose to enjoy a beer right inside the production brewery on Saturdays and Sundays through Labor Day weekend.
“We want to offer visitors a new way to experience Pike beer and the brewery itself,” said Gary Szeredy, General Manager of The Pike Pub. “While guests visiting each floor of our restaurants can view aspects of Pike’s gravity-flow brew system, opening up the brewery lets them see firsthand where the process begins.”
Featuring four beer taps and snackable landjager from Pike Place Market neighbors Bavarian Meats, the Brewery Beer Garden will be open noon to 6pm Saturdays and Sundays through September 30th.
Baby Douglas Gets An IPA
Owner and VP of OperationsDrew Gillespie is a new dad! Pike is excited to welcome baby Douglas into the family, and to celebrate we’re brewing a special beer. Pike Douglas IPA was inspired by a love of fall family gatherings, Seattle sports, and all things Cascadia. Expect a modernized take on the resin-forward West Coast IPA: Pilsner malt base paired with whole leaf Cascade and dry hopping done with Loral Cryo Hops to create a light mouthfeel with fresh pine notes. Available on draft and in 22-ounce bottles, Pike Douglas IPA hits drafts and shelves the first week of October!
