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.
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.
