Pike IPA - Updated and Refreshed

Pike Brewing Company is releasing an updated Pike IPA to bring more of today’s vibrant, hoppy flavors and a lighter body to this easy drinking IPA. Head Brewer Art Dixon kept everything you count on in Pike IPA, like its incredible balance and drinkability, while modernizing the recipe to brighten the beer’s body and rev-up its tropical and stone fruit hop flavors. Piney, citrus and fresh Citra, Cascade and Mosaic hop flavors artfully mix with a clean and light malt base in the refreshed Pike IPA, which is available year-round in 12 oz. bottles and on draft.

When Pike IPA was first introduced in 1990, by then Pike Head Brewer Fal Allen, (now with Anderson Valley Brewing) IPAs were rare and more than a few people scoffed at a beer with so much hop flavor. Pike IPA prevailed and went on to convert countless craft beer drinkers to the deliciousness of hops and IPAs.  Accolades rained in for Pike IPA, including Roger Protz naming it as one of ‘300 beers to try before you die’ and also, “one of five best IPAs in U.S.”

Times and palates have changed dramatically since Pike IPA was originally developed, as has the myriad of newer hops and local malts. This has led Pike Brewing Company to update this flagship beer, holding steady to its intent as a low-bitter, balanced IPA that pairs well with food while keeping your hop craving palate satisfied. Enjoy fresh pints of Pike IPA now at the brewery’s two restaurants, The Pike Pub and Tankard & Tun, in downtown Seattle, on tap at Puget Sound area bars and restaurants and in 12 oz. bottles at local retailers.

Monk's Uncle Now In Cans

After years as one of the hottest selling 22 oz. bottles in Washington State, Pike Brewing Company is now introducing Pike Monk’s Uncle in 12 oz. cans. This Belgian style Tripel ale is light & complex with fruity and spicy esters and a pleasing sweetness. Hints of clove, banana and floral honey from the Belgian yeast enliven this bright beer, which finishes dry with a citrusy zing. Sip and savor this NW influenced Tripel, which has a 9.0% ABV, as is the style’s tradition.

Pike Monk’s Uncle is Pike Brewing Company’s only year-round Belgian style beer. Pike founders, Charles and Rose Ann Finkel, introduced American palates to Belgian beers when they imported Orval, Lindemans and Rodenbach starting in the late 1970’s. It was their respect for these classic and exotic beers which inspired Pike’s brewers to create this Tripel, using organic malts and authentic Westmalle Monastery yeast.

When Pike Monk’s Uncle was introduced in 2008 it quickly won a Gold medal at the North American Beer Awards. Accolades have continued for this rare style, with Pike Monk’s Uncle recently winning a Silver medal at the Great International Beer & Cider Competition and Best of the Northwest at the United States Beer Tasting Championship. In addition to awards, Pike Monk’s Uncle has a loyal following of beer enthusiasts who appreciate this hard-to-find style and its hints of honey, spices and local hops.

Pike Monk’s Uncle cans are available now at the brewery in downtown Seattle and will begin appearing at western Washington independent retailers in January 2018.

Third Story series

Third Story series

Pike Brewing Company introduces the Third Story, a series of one-time-only, imaginative craft beers from Seattle’s original urban brewery. Coming straight from Pike’s newly expanded brewery cellar, the Third Story series is launching at a fertile time for exploration in craft beer.  The recent availability of new ingredients like Cryo hops, locally grown malts and new yeast strains combined with craft beer drinkers’ clamor for more adventurous brews lines up perfectly with Pike Brewing’s veteran brewers’ itch to explore.

Beer Release: Pike Organic Double Oatmeal Stout

It is with a hearty nod of appreciation to Yorkshire’s Oldest Brewery that Pike Brewing Company introduces our winter seasonal, Pike Organic Double Oatmeal Stout.


Certain beers embody and capture a beer style more than any other. When it comes to oatmeal stout, the beer that sets the standard is Samuel Smith’s Oatmeal Stout. This world classic has a long relationship with Pike Brewing Company since Pike founder, Charles Finkel, conceived the idea of reviving a classic, yet extinct, beer style.  He introduced the idea to Samuel Smith for which he was the importer and then worked alongside their Head Brewer, Allister Ross, to arrive at the color and taste.  Charles designed the logo and label that adorns the bottles and introduced the beer in the U.S. in the late 1970s.

Pike Head Brewer, Art Dixon, sought to mirror all the characteristics that drew him to this Smith’s oatmeal stout, such as its silky mouthfeel, warm chocolate tones and roastiness, and then take it up a notch with this organic double. Always interested in the details that can set a beer apart, Art took extra care in selecting a unique blend of 6 malted barleys and rounding them out with organic oats. He then added his west coast style to the brew with a late addition of Willamette hops, a relation to England’s famed Fuggle hops.

Pike Organic Double Oatmeal Stout is dark and incredibly smooth. The beer’s inviting malt aromas bring you into a silky and round mouthfeel and chocolate, roasty and caramel flavors. It is available now on draft and in 22 oz. dinner bottles.
