Visited on 4/20/12 while on vacation

My wife and I stopped in for The Pike Sampler after walking around The Market on a beautiful day.

Six 4oz. beers (Naughty Nellie, Pike Pale Ale, Kilt Lifter, XXX, Monk's Uncle, and Pike IPA) with fitting descriptions served on wooden tray satisfied the palate and the soul. Although these brews are not necessarily my favorite style I did enjoy them and respected the order that they were suggested I drink them in. I was happily surprised by Kilt Lifter and yearned for more XXX, Naughty Nellie was better than most organic beers (which I usually do not care for except Deschutes Green Lakes Amber Ale), and the rest were just above standard. $8.95 to check off 5 beers (I had already tried Pike IPA) in such an environment was well worth it for me. My wife enjoyed the Monk's Uncle more than she thought she would but favored the XXX over all the others as well.

Cool items in gift shop as well.

Ok place. Beer is not the best but great when you're at Pike Place Market.

This place is near and dear to me. I first visited in 1997, when craft breweries were popping up all over the Pacific Northwest. The combination of funky location, great food and interesting beer had me hooked immediately. Each of my return visits have been equally favorable. They make great burgers, but my absolute favorites are the Penn Cove Mussels or the fish and chips. For me, no visit to Seattle is complete without a stop by the Pike Pub & Brewery.

I stopped into this place merely because I walked by it. It seemed to be somewhat of a tourist trap. It was mid afternoon and pretty busy. I walked up to the bar and ordered a sampler. My buddy and I walked into the adjoining room and plopped down away from the crowd. The room we entered had tables and booths but also casual living room style seating.

The beers were average, but the place was amazing. There was breweriana everywhere from tap handles to bottle openers, from old beer cans to postcards, etc. It was basically a beer museum which I found awesome once I got settled in. I wandered the place checking out the various displays while drinking my samples. All of the sudden, the average samples seemed well paired with the surrounding museum atmosphere.

I did manage to have a good beer, albeit a guest tap. The crowning jewel of my experience was finding a postcard of a pre-prohibition brewery from my hometown, Dostal Bros. Brewing. The sentimentality of that experience elevated Pike Brewing for me.

I look at the place as a beer museum that brews its own beer. It is a very cool place to check out based on the breweriana. The beer isn't awful. I had a memorable time. It is a cool place to check out.
