Pike's Rose Ann Finkel describes the place:

The Pike Pub features traditional pub fare with a special emphasis on local, seasonal, and organicproducts, with dishes such as crab chowder, wild salmon, hamburgers from grass fed beef, andbratwurst with apple sauerkraut. Pike Ales, brewed on premise in a gravity flow steam brewery, are featured along with local wines and cocktails using artisan spirits.It is the home of Seattle's Micro Brewery Museum.
