Seattle, WA — Pike Brewing Company is proud to announce the release of its summer seasonal beer, Pike Derby Lager. Nature created summer so we could drink beer outside. Pike Brewing Company created Derby Lager so you could have the perfect beer for summer lounging, BBQ’s and thirst quenching.

Pike Derby Lager is a light, lager-style beer brewed using San Francisco Steam (California Common) lager yeast that ferments at 65 degrees. Sorachi Ace hops of Japanese origin flavor this brew along with a small portion of flaked brown rice to create its lovely, light mouthfeel. This gentle lager pairs well with all manner of summer time foods, from spicy grilled sausages and burgers to pasta salads and grilled fruit.

Where did the name come from? Pike Derby Lager is named for our very own Boston Terrier mascot, Derby. This lager is pure bred, just like our sweet Derby.

Pike Derby Lager is available on draft and in 22 oz. dinner size bottles.
