The iconic Pike Brewing Company, situated near the waterfront in Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market, has been brewing now for more than 30 years. Founders Charles and Rose Ann Finkel are well known and well loved in the local craft beer scene, and with good reason. Their dedication and perseverance helped elevate craft beer from a small ‘hobby’ for enthusiasts to a nationwide and indeed Worldwide powerhouse of, literally, thousands of small, independent breweries most of which, in my opinion, put out beers that put most mass-produced American lagers and Ales to shame.
Pike is also a big supporter of the local restaurant industry as well as local cideries, wineries and distilleries. One way they showcase their support for these ‘sister’ industries is their annual Chocofest, where you can find some of the very best our local producers offer and, of course, delicious Pike Brewing Company beers. Chocofest isn’t until early February of 2020, but tickets are on sale now and this event usually sells out, so don’t delay.
Here is some more information about Chocofest 2020 from Pike Brewing Company:
One of our biggest and most popular events of the year, Chocofest is celebration of sips, sweets, and savory foods held at Pike Brewing Company on Sunday, February 9, 2020.
