Seattle’s Pike Brewing has a great on-premise spot for fans to pop in regularly at The Pike Pub and Tankard & Tun, but sometimes it’s just more fun to sit on kegs and drink off of barrels among the brewhouse itself. The Pike team agrees with that philosophy, and on Saturdays and Sundays through Labor Day weekend Pike is opening the doors to its production brewery for a popup Brewery Beer Garden.
“We want to offer visitors a new way to experience Pike beer and the brewery itself,” said Gary Szeredy, general moanager of The Pike Pub. “While guests visiting each floor of our restaurants can view aspects of Pike’s gravity-flow brew system, opening up the brewery lets them see firsthand where the process begins.”
Featuring four beer taps and snackable landjager from Pike Place Market neighbors Bavarian Meats, the Brewery Beer Garden will be open noon to 6 p.m. on August 11 and 12, August 18 and 19, August 25 and 26 and September 1 and 2.
