Microbrasserie - Resto-Pub
The Pike Brewing Company - Seattle
USA - Washington - Seattle
UNE BRASSERIE DANS LE PIKE'S MARKET, POURQUOI PAS!
Cher Journal... Cette microbrasserie est impressionnante. L'endroit est un musée à lui seul, le service est courtois et la bière est bonne. Le point négatif est l'absence de terrasse. Par une chaude journée d'été, j'aurais aimé mieux prendre ma bière à l'extérieur!
MOT DU PRODUCTEUR...
Who knows what we’d be drinking today if it weren’t for one couple’s love of complex craft beers and each other. It was 1989 and Charles and Rose Ann Finkel finally realized a long time dream to open their own brewery in Seattle. During their travels the Finkels had fallen in love with the many beers of Europe, including ales in England, fruit beers in Belgium and pils, dunkels and dopplebocks in Bavaria. Inspired to bring these malty brews back home, where light, mass produced lagers still dominated the American palate, they pioneered a beer & wine importing business. Working with the world’s greatest brewers was inspiring as was seeing how Washington’s wine industry was growing. The Finkels knew that the time was right to start brewing their own full-flavored beers for Seattle. Opening day at Pike Place Brewing, 1989. Opening day at Pike Place Brewing, 1989. Charles and Rose Ann were smitten by the Pike Place Market – an icon and attraction dedicated to local food & tastes. Liberty Malt Supply, a homebrewer’s paradise owned by John Farias, was located directly under the market in the La Salle Hotel and the Finkels bought the business to expand with a microbrewery. There on Western Avenue they began building the Pike Place Brewery, becoming the third microbrewery in Seattle. The brewery was state of the art for the time, with a four barrel copper kettle custom made by Seattle’s Alaska Copper and Brass Company.
