Started in tiny Kalama, Washington, as Hart Brewing Company in 1984, Pyramid is now one of the largest West Coast breweries to arise from the early microbrew pioneers of the Pacific Northwest. Now with breweries in Portland, Berkeley, Sacramento, and Walnut Creek, as well, this huge brewing facility and brewpub in Seattle is the original since the move from Kalama. Located in the city's stadium district, it is housed in a vintage brick warehouse and features an expansive patio out front for fair-weather imbibing. Inside is classic Pacific Northwest interior decor with concrete floors, dark wood, and exposed beams. Rows of long, narrow stand-up height tables cross the center of the voluminous space, with low tables and booths around the perimeter and in side rooms. With so many years in the brewery biz, Pyramid boasts a broad range of very high quality beer known for its assertiveness and consistency. Pyramid's brewers take care of all palates. Pyramid Hefeweizen is a bright, unfiltered wheat ale with citrus notes. Spicy and malty seasonal Snow Cap Ale is a Christmastime favorite. Ultra-hoppy pale ales come in both light and dark varieties, Discord Dark IPA and Outburst Imperial IPA, a dry hopped style. Pyramid Maibock is a lightly malty bock-style brew. Food ranges from pub fare such as gourmet burgers to regional specialties like wild Alaskan salmon and fish and chips plates, even a pot roast braised in Snow Cap. Yum.
