A few new beers from Pike Brewing have hit the marketplace. Joining Pike Pils the brewery’s new year-round offering are Pike Tripel Kriek and Pike Green Jacket IPA, a collaboration beer with Flatstick Pub.
Here are additional details on all three beers from Pike Brewing.
Pike Tripel Kriek Pike Tripel Kriek is a tart and juicy ode to one of Washington’s favorite fruits. To create Pike Tripel Kriek, head brewer Art Dixon second-fermented Pike Monk’s Uncle, our Belgian-style tripel, on tart cherries in Chateau Ste. Michelle chardonnay barrels. Aged for over six months, Pike Tripel Kriek is a draft-only release. Find it on tap at The Pike Pub starting Friday and on tap throughout Washington soon after.
Pike Pils Pike Pils, our best-selling rotator beer, returns to the lineup as a year-round offering. Look out for Pike Pils on tap and in cans this March. A zesty, bright, and refreshingly hoppy Pilsner, Pike Pils captures attention with light German malts and whole leaf Mosaic hops. Featuring floral and light melon flavors, this crisp lager offers big aroma, a dry finish, and enough hops to satisfy the Northwest palate.
Pike Green Jacket IPA (Collaboration brew with Flatstick Pub)
Heavily hopped with Citra and dry hopped with Chinook and Cascade, Pike Green Jacket IPA is a piney, earthy thirst quencher brewed in honor of the 5th Annual Flatstick Masters held April 14 at Flatstick Pub in Kirkland. Available draft-only, Pike Green Jacket IPA will be poured exclusively at Pike and Flatstick locations: Try it at The Pike Pub, Tankard & Tun, Flatstick Pub Kirkland, Pioneer Square, and South Lake Union.
