Pike Releases No. 4 Session IPA

The Pike Brewing Co. in Seattle, WA has announced a new summer seasonal. No. 4 Session IPA is brewed with local Skagit Valley Alba malt and is named after Lou Gehrig's jersey number while playing for the New York Yankees. Pike is one of seven WA breweries to join Ales for ALS, a program to help breweries raise funds to research and develop treatments for the disease that Gehrig suffered from.

Here is the release from Pike:

Seattle, WA: Pike No.4 Session IPA delivers well balanced hop flavors and aroma with a low ABV for summertime fun. This bright and floral session IPA is brewed with Skagit Valley Alba malt and the Ales for ALS proprietary hop blend. Together these ingredients create a clean and bright beer with citrus and stone fruit flavors and aroma.

The beer’s name, No. 4, commemorates Lou Gehrig’s retired jersey number. Pike Brewing Company is proud to be one of seven Washington State breweries who’ve joined Ales for ALS. Pike No.4 Session IPA is Pike Brewing Company’s summer seasonal beer release and will be available on draft and in 22 oz. dinner bottles throughout the summer.

Pike Brewing offers a tip of the hat to Loftus Ranches and Hopunion who created Ales for ALS, to Kraig Knutzen for growing our Alba barley and to Skagit Valley Malting for malting the barley.
