All of Pike Brewing’s packaging, from draft kegs to 12 oz cans and bottles and and 22 oz bottles, is done within feet of the bright tanks, ensuring it stays fresh. Pike Brewing even has a specialized bottling machine which double evacuates oxygen before filling the bottles. This process ensures our bottled beers taste as fresh and full as draft beer.
About The Brewery
Every Pike beer is handcrafted at our urban brewery in downtown Seattle, next door to the Pike Place Market. When you visit Pike Brewing Company you’ll notice that everything is built around our gravity flow, steam powered brewhouse. The mash tun and grist case sit in view of guests at Tankard & Tun and the brew kettle operates in the middle of The Pike Pub’s dining room. Join a brewery tour and you’ll go down into the brewery cellar, where you can see the bottling line at work and wonder how we squeezed so many fermentation tanks into such a cozy brewery.
Pike Brewing Company operates a 30 barrel brewhouse to produce roughly 12,500 barrels of craft beer a year. Always with an eye towards brewing history, owner Charles Finkel had the brewery built on three levels of the building, using the traditional gravity flow system. At the top is our grist case and then mash tun, which mixes malt with warm water to start converting the malt’s starches into sugar. The resulting liquid, called wort, then flows naturally down to our brew kettle, which is located one story below in theThe Pike Pub. Pub visitors love to eat and drink while watching Pike Brewing brewers carefully add hops to the brew kettle. The wort finishes by flowing down to our brew house, where it is fermented, conditioned and packaged.
