Pike Brewing Takes Steps to Remain Independent
On the eve of Pike Brewing’s 26th anniversary, the company announced that it’s expanding ownership to three key employees plus expanding its footprint in Seattle.
They are: Drew Gillespie, vice president operations; Patti Baker, vice president controller; and Gary Marx, executive chef. Collectively they have been at Pike for 45 years. The move ensures that Pike Brewing remains independent and continues to grow organically.
Pike Brewing is also expanding its footprint and brewing capacity by moving up, occupying an additional 5,500-square-foot space directly above The Pike Pub on the atrium level with direct access from First Avenue and The Pike Place Market Atrium. The entire space will be remodeled in the Pike style with antique breweriana, an extension of Pike’s Micro Brewery Museum.
