Pike Brewing Company Named Most Iconic Brand
Pike is proud to have be named Most Iconic Brand by Seattle magazine’s 2018 Beer Awards. In addition, the Pike XXXXX Stout was a finalist in the Best Stout category and The Pike Pub was picked as Readers’ Choice finalist for Best Brew Pub.
New Beer Release: Citrus Summer Ale
With the arrival of a Seattle heatwave, Pike Brewing is proud to introduce Citrus Summer Ale. This light golden ale features Lemondrop hops and has a clean, round mouthfeel that pops with bright citrus and light peppery notes. Crisp with a refreshing white head, this session ale clocks in at 4.2% and is available on draft and in 22-ounce bottles.
New Beer Release: Hopsie
Named after a character in the 1941 screwball comedy The Lady Eve, Hopsie is a collaboration pale ale brewed with Naked City Brewery to commemorate their 10th year anniversary! A lighter take on the classic pale ale style, this beer features a complex yet crisp palate. Hopsie is exclusively available on draft at Naked City Brewery’s Greenwood Seattle and Camano Island locations, and Pike Brewing Company’s The Pike Pub and Tankard & Tun in downtown Seattle.
If you’d like to be among the first to enjoy a few Pike Brewing Company beers in the new brewery beer garden, then get down to Pike at noon tomorrow, August 11th. The other dates when you can enjoy the beer garden are listed above. Of course, you don’t have to wait until tomorrow if you’d like to try Citrus Summer Ale or Hopsie, as they are both available right now. Also, as noted above, you can also enjoy Hopsie at both Naked City Locations (Greenwood and Camano Island).
Drink responsibly and stay safe out there.
