Pike Bitter Lake IPA facts:

Pike Bitter Lake IPA is named for the Bitter Lake neighborhood in North Seattle. The name also references the beer’s lingering pine finish, reminiscent of the forest that once stood where Bitter Lake is now.

Ekuanot is an aroma and flavor hop prized for its citrus, dark berry, and pine notes.

Seattle’s Bitter Lake was once the home of an amusement park called Playland, best known for it’s roller coaster, the Dipper. Although location of the Dipper is now home to the Bitter Lake Community Center, you can still pair Pike Bitter Lake IPA with a corn dog!

But for those looking for something else, the brewery is reminding all of the upcoming release of their Morning After Pale. In their own words, here's what they had to say about this beer which benefits Planned Parenthood.

Brewed yearly by the women of Pike Brewing Company, Pike Morning After Pale has a light and creamy malt base and refreshing, bright hop character from whole leaf Citra hops. Pike Morning After Pale celebrates women’s current and historic roles in craft beer and benefits our friends at Planned Parenthood of The Great Northwest and Hawaiian Islands.

Pike Morning After Pale was first developed in 2011 by the women who work at Pike to recognize women’s current and historic roles in craft beer and support Planned Parenthood.

Pike Morning After Pale is brewed to coincide with Pike’s Women in Beer, the single largest event of Seattle Beer Week. Women in Beer and Pike Morning After Pale raise over $10,000 for Planned Parenthood each year.

Planned Parenthood’s mission is to empower individuals to make independent, informed decisions about their sexual and reproductive lives. They provide information, health care, and promote policies to make those services available to all.

Whether you try a Bitter Lake IPA, look forward to a Morning After Pale, or enjoy one of their always-reliable beers; the brewery and staff hope you enjoy your visit to the Pike Brewing Company, Pike Pub, Microbrewery Museum, or Tankard & Tun.
