Pike Announces Annual Pride Release Along with New Out of Office IPA for Summer

Continuing its proud tradition of brewing a Pride beer, Pike Brewing has announce that it will be donating a portion of proceeds to benefit The GSBA Scholarship & Education Fund with its release of Pike Pride Helles Lager this year.

The Seattle brewery also announced its release of Out of Office IPA for the summer as well.

“Now more than ever it’s important to celebrate and support the diverse communities around us. At Pike Brewing diversity matters, and we are committed to providing inclusivity within our workplace and in our products,” the brewery wrote in a release.

GSBA is a unique business chamber, in that in addition to promoting business, it advocates for equality and diversity in the workforce, continuing its commitment to combine business development, leadership and social action to expand economic opportunities for the LGBTQ+ community and those who support equality for all. The brewery will be donating a portion of the proceeds from all beer sales to the scholarship fund, and during Pride Weekend, we will be donating $1 from each pint sold at all three locations.

“This year we’ve continued our current trend and changed up the liquid in our Pike Pride beer and have brewed a Helles Lager,” the brewery wrote. “Golden and bright in appearance with a rounded malt forward flavor and slight floral hop aroma. With a low bitterness and a lingering dryness, this summer just got a little more delicious.” (ABV of 4.5%, SRM of 3.5, and an IBU of 16)

Out of Office IPA is light bodied with notes of candied citrus peels, lightly toasted brioche, summer blooms, in addition to slight dank and pine bottom notes. The brew team, led by Leslie Shore, used Strata, Bravo, HBC 586, ADHA 218 hops, and puffed Jasmine Rice to create this brew! (ABV of 6.25%, SRM of 3.5, and an IBU of 30)

Out of Office IPA is available May through July while Pike Pride is also available now on draft at Pike Pub, Pike Fish Bar, Pike Taproom Ballard, and at select retailers and pubs throughout the Puget Sound region.
