- THE PIKE STORY
The latest in the Pike Locale series, featuring 100% Washington State grown ingredients and farmer direct malts from Skagit Valley Malting. Pike Locale Copeland greets you with an inviting copper color that comes from its freshly malted Dark Munich roast. This special malt brings nutty and earthy flavors to the beer, which complement its citrusy hops character. You’ll notice a little more body to this beer compared to Skagit Valley Alba, but a similar ABV at 5.5%. Pike Locale Copeland will be available on draft only and exclusively at The Pike Pub and up north in Skagit and Whatcom counties.
Malt is the soul of beer; akin to grapes in wine. Brewers have an incredible diversity of hops to brew with and yet since Prohibition have been limited in malt choices. Now Pike Brewing Company is working directly with Skagit Valley farmers to grow barley varietals specifically for craft beer malt. These varietals will bring new, full and complex flavors that today’s craft beer drinkers want. Pike Locale Copeland is the third beer in the Pike Locale series, following two version of Pike Locale Alba.
Pike Brewing is partnering with with WSU’s Bread Lab, Skagit Valley Malting and local farmers on the Pike Locale series. In addition to their unique and full flavors, these beers will also help protect the Skagit Valley’s precious farmland.
