Zeeks Pizza breathes new life into a familiar Bellingham location



Whatcom County’s first Zeeks Pizza opens this weekend

Familiar? Notorious? The former home of Melvin Brewing’s outpost in Bellingham is about to get infused with new life, positive energy, and really good beer. This Saturday, Zeeks Pizza opens in Bellingham’s Fountain District. Top features of Zeeks’ newest location include local ownership and a commitment to the local beer and brewing scene.

I’ve called Zeeks Pizza a good beer bar with a pizza problem and this new location will be no different. For the opening, eight of the 17 taps will feature local Bham beer. Like other Zeeks locations, this one will offer an extensive lineup of draft and packaged beer available for delivery in growlers, crowlers, and cans. When it comes to the art of beer delivery, Zeeks Pizza is something of a pioneer; the list of beers they’ll deliver to your door, including freshly poured draft beer, is impressive.

Here is the press release with more details about the new location.

Local owners stoked to partner with Bellingham breweries and introduce Whatcom to Zeeks’ renowned beers and beer delivery service

(Bellingham, Washington, May 17, 2021) Zeeks Pizza Bellingham is set to open to the public on May 29th.  Located at 2416 Meridian St., Zeeks Pizza Bellingham will be the first Zeeks location in Whatcom County and nineteenth overall. The newest addition to the Fountain District, Zeeks Pizza Bellingham is locally owned by Matt Stotts, Julie Stotts, Brady Scott and Cindy Scott, operating under the name Fountain Pyze, LLC. 

The Fountain District restaurant will feature one of the most noteworthy beer line-ups in the Northwest and one that celebrates beers and ciders brewed in and around Bellingham. Zeeks has long partnered and collaborated with Bellingham breweries, and eight of the seventeen initial taps will feature local producers including Aslan Brewing Co., Chuckanut Brewery, Kulshan Brewing Co., Lost Giants Cider Company, Otherlands Beer, Stemma Brewing Company, Structures Brewing and Wander Brewing. It will also feature the newly released Steller’s Jay, a crisp dry-hopped lager brewed by Zeeks in collaboration with Black Raven Brewing built for summer beer quenching. Steller’s Jay was named by Zeeks Pizza Bellingham owner Julie Stotts and the beer celebrates women entrepreneurs in the Zeeks system including Stotts and Cindy Scott. 

The entire Zeeks Pizza Bellingham tap line-up will be available for delivery in growlers and crowlers.  Its extensive bottle shop will also be available for delivery.  Like Zeeks’ tap list, the bottle shop features the best and brightest in Pacific Northwest beer and cider along with Washington wines, and local hard seltzer.  Zeeks two most renowned collaboration beers are the headliners.  Reuben’s Hop Tropic NW IPA and Urban Family’s Zeek & Destroy IIPA have a cult following in the Northwest and are the only two beers available year-round at Zeeks. Zeeks Pizza Bellingham’s delivery area will include most of Bellingham and by Washington State law food must be purchased to get alcohol delivered.

    1. There is no mention of it in the official announcement. I was unaware that brewing their own beer was part of the plan. I will follow up and, if it is part of the eventual plan, update the story accordingly.

    2. I was told: There is no plan to brew beer at this location, though they are not completely ruling out the idea. It’s just not in the plans at this time.
