Pike Brewing Company is a Seattle icon. They’re popular with locals and tourists alike and The Pike is always a great place to go for a few cold beers paired with some delicious food. They’ve been at it for nearly 26 years now, and it’s time once again to celebrate.
Whether they know it or not, Seattle craft beer lovers owe a lot to Pike founders Charles and Rose Ann Finkel, who helped pioneer the Seattle craft beer movement of the late 80’s and early 90’s. Learn more about their story by reading up on Pike’s history (see below).
From Pike Brewing History:
During their travels the Finkels had fallen in love with the many beers of Europe, including ales in England, fruit beers in Belgium and pils, dunkels and dopplebocks in Bavaria. Inspired to bring these malty brews back home, where light, mass produced lagers still dominated the American palate, they pioneered a beer & wine importing business. Working with the world’s greatest brewers was inspiring as was seeing how Washington’s wine industry was growing. The Finkels knew that the time was right to start brewing their own full-flavored beers for Seattle.
In celebration of 26 amazing years, Pike Brewing Company invites you to Pike Brewing Company this Friday, October 16th from 4-6 PM for a Hoppy Hour with Charles, Rose Ann and the entire Pike Brewing crew. There’ll be beer specials, birthday cake and fun for all.
