As we previously noted here, Pike Brewing is opening a taproom in Ballard. We now share more details. The new location is slated to open later this month or early next month. The 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,” said 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 opening is just one part of Pike Brewing’s vision for the company as it moves forward. Gillespie recently explained that Pike Brewing’s pub near Pike Place Market is recognized as a tourist destination, and he’s happy about that, but the company wants to appeal to the entire city and its inhabitants and not just its visitors. In other words, Pike Brewing needs to get out in the neighborhoods.
Not long ago, Pike Brewing introduced an all new look, some new personnel in key positions, some new beers, as well as updates to some of the companny’s long-beloved recipes. The brewery will always have an important place in the city’s craft beer history, but it is determined to be part of the future as well.
Here are some details about the Pike Ballard Taproom.
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.
