pike nellie: golden ale
Named for the madam at the LaSalle where Pike Brewing was founded, Pike Nellie pours a golden color with a nutty, cracker-like malt flavor in front ending with a sight grapefruit and lemon wave to the palette.
Pike Nellie was named for Nellie Nightingale Curtis, madam of the LaSalle Hotel, the same where Pike Brewing was founded. Curtis was a notorious, outrageous citizen of Seattle in its rough and tumble years in the early 20th century.
One of Seattle’s only organic beers, Pike Nellie features organic ingredients including pale malt.
The Pike Pub also has a dining room dedicated to Nellie Curtis, displaying a photograph of Curtis and the old door from the LaSalle.
