Pike Brewing Company recently announced that it is opening two new satellite taprooms in Seattle. This news, as reported by the Business Journal, comes on the heels of a big rebranding project, the introduction of some new year-round beers, and the addition of some key members to its brewery team. (Read about all that stuff here.)
The first of the two new taprooms is in Ballard. Pike Brewing is set to open at 5205 Ballard Ave. NW, the former home of Brambling Cross, an Ethan Stowell restaurant. The location is across the street from Macleod’s and kittycorner from The Lock and Keel.
The 2,500-square-foot space should open in December. Along with beer and food, the Ballard location will offer indoor and outdoor seating, televisions, darts, and shuffleboards. The food menu, designed by Chef Ethan Stowell, centers on burgers, wings, salads, and pretzels. The chef acquired a stake in Pike Brewing last year.
The other new Pike Brewing location is slated to open in January as part of the Washington Convention Center Addition project. The taproom will be more like an outpost focusing on beer and hot dogs. It will occupy 600 square feet off of Pine Street and also an additional 1,000 square feet of community-style outdoor seating along Pine Street. Essentially, right across the street from the Paramount Theater. For more information about the Convention Center addition project, visit this website.
