SEATTLE, November 1, 2022 — Pike Brewing announces plans to open a taproom in Seattle’s bustling Ballard neighborhood. Slated to open in late November or early December, Pike Taproom will occupy the former Bramling Cross space at 5205 Ballard Ave NW.
“It’s been a big year of growth for Pike Brewing,” says Drew Gillespie, president of Pike Brewing. “Opening a taproom in Ballard is an exciting way for us to introduce our new and improved beers, new team, and fresh look to a whole new audience.”
The Pike Taproom will feature a menu designed by Ethan Stowell, and offer a handful of burgers, plus wings, salads, and Pike’s famous pretzel. Stowell is the consulting chef for all of Pike Brewing’s culinary operations.
In addition to featuring the entire Pike Brewing lineup, including seasonal brews and limited production beers, there will a rotating tap devoted to a Ballard Brewery, and a tap featuring a local cider, as well as a full bar.
The 2,500 square foot space is being designed by Kelley Moore. Moore has added a green leather banquette that runs along one of the exposed brick walls, modern lighting fixtures, mirrors, and black and white photos to the space that offers seating for 45, as well as 8 seats at the bar which boasts a custom designed brushed metal backbar. A neon Pike Brewing sign welcomes guests into the taproom. The front of the space offers shuffleboard and vintage-inspired truck seats, ideal for lounging with friends over beers. Two dartboards adorn the back of the space and televisions are placed thoughtfully throughout the room for cheering on your favorite team.
Pike Taproom will open at 3pm Monday through Friday, and at 12pm on weekends. Happy hour will be offered from 4pm to 6pm Monday through Friday.
