Seattle’s Alleys are taking over the streets on August 1st for the Alley-Palooza, an event covering local alleys from Pioneer Square to Pike Street.
Held in conjunction with FirstThursday Art Walk, it’s a chance to explore Seattle’s historic alleys as these forgotten passages come alive with music, food, art and entertainment for all ages. And while they’re all awesome, we’re most excited for the The Post Alley Hooley, as the Pike Brewing Company will be releasing the new Pike Entire barrel-aged stout.
Like all of the alley walks, the Post Alley Hooley is free and open to the public. It will feature live music, craft vendors, art installations, free walking tours and even a Pike Hooley Beer Garden in the brewery. Pike will have the Pike Entire line and pour two IPAs for National IPA Day: Pike IPA and Pike Space Needle Golden IPA, along with Pike Naughty Nellie Golden Ale and Pike Kilt Lifter Scotch Ale.
Other businesses joining in include Ghost Alley Espresso, Pike Place Market Foundation, Lecosho, Seitel Systems, Diane’s Market Kitchen, Owl & Thistle, and many more.
