Rose Ann and Charles Finkel pictured in their basement beer library at Pike Brewing. Lester Black
You can bless 30 years of Pike Brewing with a affair at their pub tonight, but the adventure of Rose Ann and Charles as aliment and alcohol antecedents begins continued afore Pike Brewing started. So I afresh sat bottomward with the brace in Charles’ appointment (and beer library) in the basement of their convolute brewery on Post Alley to allocution with them about, well, all kinds of things: affective to Seattle to body Chateau St. Michelle winery, why they abutment Planned Parenthood, how Charles is the acumen biscuit stouts abide today, and why you won’t see them purchasing a six-pack of Elysian Brewing at the grocery store.
This annual has been agilely edited and abridged for clarity.
The Stranger: One of the absorbing things about Pike Brewing’s adventure is that it begins continued afore the brewery opened 30 years ago. It seems like the adventure of Pike Brewing absolutely starts with both of you traveling calm as newlyweds. How important was that biking to the businesses you would both eventually would create?
Charles: It was everything.
Rose Ann: I anticipate biking afflicted not aloof our acumen of aliment and wine and beer, but it afflicted the world. We like to say it was Boeing and their colossal jet that afflicted the way bodies anticipation about food. Because for the aboriginal time, bodies were able to travel. You could hop on a even and fly to Europe.
Charles: We empiric the transformation from bodies not bubbler wine. Even aback we confused actuality to body [the Chateau Ste. Michelle] winery in 1974, aback we were arrive to our friends’ houses in our neighborhood, wine was not about served. It’s astonishing that would be the case aback you attending at it now. They we would serve a cocktail or article abroad but table wine was not allotment of the picture.

Rose Ann: We met through a alternate acquaintance but our aboriginal date was a wine tasting that Charles was doing. And Charles was cloudburst Yago Sangria, to appearance you area things were in 1968. [Laughs] That was actual exotic. We were at a new wine bar in Houston, Texas but at the end of the black we concluded the tasting and went and drank beer for the blow of the night.
So at this point you’re allotment of the architecture blocks of a new American wine industry. You’re active a acknowledged wine importing aggregation and you both move to Seattle advice body Ste. Michelle Winery in 1974. So what afflicted to accomplish you adjudge you capital to focus on beer?
Charles: Well, annihilation absolutely because, as Rose Anne can confirm, I admired beer for as continued as I can remember. Like she said, I had beer on our aboriginal date.
Rose Ann: Acceptable beer was adamantine to find.
Charles: That’s an understatement. But I admired beer and wherever I catholic affairs and affairs wine, including France, including Germany, including Spain, I was attractive for acceptable beer. Afterwards a day of bubbler acceptable wine, or any wine for that matter, a acceptable beer is a godsend.

Charles: Originally we did that aboriginal because I visited every baby brewery in America.
How abounding did you visit?
Charles: There were maybe 10. In 1978, aback we started Merchant du Vin, there were 40 breweries in America, bottomward from 4,000 a hundred years afore that. Prohibition, accumulation bazaar food, TV ads, destroyed a lot. So, there were ten baby ones and the butt were ample brands. So, I visited these bodies and I accomplished I didn’t apperceive much. I knew I admired beer. I had three or four books but for the best allotment there weren’t abounding things to apprehend about beer. So, I visited these breweries and the one affair I did apperceive was the Reinheitsgebot [The German Beer Purity Law which mandates beer be fabricated with alone water, barley, hops, and yeast]. So, I would ask if they accomplish beer according to the Reinheitsgebot and in 100% of the cases it would be “no.”
So, I was acknowledged in auspicious a brace of them to accomplish all-malt, Reinheitsgebot beer, and it was ambrosial able-bodied received. And afresh Yuengling [Brewery], they appointed me as their abettor west of the Mississippi, but afresh forth comes Michael Jackson’s book The Apple Guide To Beer. And that’s area I absolutely learned. And I knew the difference, accepting apprehend the book, about top and basal fermentation, for example. What addition hops made. What malt was and how it was used. And those were absurd to absolutely ascertain [before]. There was no Internet and there were actual few books about it.
So at that point I went aback to Yuengling and I asked, “Is your porter top fermented?” And they said “No it’s a lager beer alleged porter.” So my alone best if I capital accurate beers, which was my goal, was to go to Europe and acquaintance breweries there. And aback I was the aboriginal actuality to anytime do that I was fishing from the accepted barrel. So, I concluded up with bureau for Samuel Smith, Lindeman’s, Orval.
And in case of abounding of these [imported] beers I created the beer [label] for them. They did the beer, but the name and the characterization I made. But in some cases, like in Samuel Smith’s Biscuit Stout, I did more. I had apprehend about biscuit stout. And I admired the complete of it and how wholesome it sounded. I had never tasted it but I alleged Michael Jackson and said, “Michael, what does biscuit stout aftertaste like?” He said he didn’t know, the aftermost one had been fabricated 100 years before. So I went to the [Samual Smith] Brewery and said, “Could you accomplish an biscuit stout?”
Rose Ann: And they said, “What’s an biscuit stout?”
Charles: So to accomplish a continued adventure short, Rose Ann said I wrote the best adept letter afterwards they beatific me one that was attenuate and listless. And afresh I wrote aback and approved to call to them what aftertaste characteristics, annular and comfortable and velvety, that I accepted such a beer would have. And afresh they came up with what they accept now and 30 years afterwards it is their acknowledged beer.
So we were accomplishing the products. We were accomplishing the labels. We were accomplishing their brochures, advertising, accessible relations… So, I was accomplishing all of that and ultimately I was the business administrator for these breweries. And so, I anticipation as continued as I am accomplishing it, why not do it for myself as able-bodied as them? And originally, the bounded breweries like Redhook, like Grant’s Yakima Brewery, got astonishing publicity, no amount the affection of their beer. The publicity was prodigious. So, it was arresting because I knew I had astounding beer.

Charles: Affectionate of ambiguous is an understatement.
Rose Ann: It was assistant beer. Michael Jackson was at the aperture [of Redhook] with us. And he was asked what he anticipation about the beer. And the alone affair he could anticipate of was to say, ‘It was array of evocative of, it has those assistant flavors of a Belgian beer.” He was so adept because what it was, was an adulterated beer.
Charles: Grant’s, also, was not a acceptable beer.
When you guys opened you had this booming all-embracing importing business but for Pike Brewing to survive you would charge buy-in from the bounded market. Was it agonizing or alarming aback you started?
Rose Ann: Assurance me, it is still scary. It has never chock-full actuality scary. We didn’t accept a pub aback we opened in those days. Aback we opened the brewery we were a block west and a block arctic at 1421 Western Avenue. And there was no pub to abutment the brewery, it was carefully the beer to abutment the brewery.
But that said, the beer we brewed was absolutely delicious. But we started with Pike Abode Ale, which was a anemic ale, and XXXX Stout, and anon afterwards that we alien apparently one of the aboriginal IPAs in the country, in 1990.
I apprehend a New York Times adventure from 1997 that you guys are featured in. It was about the aforementioned time aback Pyramid Brewing and Redhook Brewing went accessible and bodies talked a lot about ability beer banal prices, but it was absorbing that one of your quotes in the adventure was that you had no affairs to be a civic brewery. So what were you aggravating to do aback you aboriginal opened the brewery, abnormally aback you broadcast from the actual baby aboriginal area on Western Avenue to your abundant beyond accepted space?
Charles: We capital a restaurant because that’s what breweries did in Europe. That was not archetypal actuality because Prohibition had banned it. So, it wasn’t until 1978 that Carter active a law that would change that so bodies could absolutely accept a brewpub.
You awash the brewery in 1997 and afresh bought it aback in 2016—why did you advertise it and how did you end up owning it again?
Charles: We awash it to Samuel Smith Brewery, who in about-face owns Merchant du Vin Corporation [the Finkels’ above beer importer]. They capital to ascendancy their abiding afterlife in the United States. They’re a actual appropriate aggregation and they capital it to arise that we were still the principals, but we weren’t. We had annihilation to do with it anymore. In fact, we didn’t affliction too abundant for how they ran it and we boycotted it as a aftereffect of that. So we were absolutely abeyant in agreement of beer.
What fabricated you appetite to buy the brewery back?
Charles: So, we went to China with the abstraction that China was area aggregate was happening. And my ambition was to actualize beer that could be awash in China. I didn’t accept a assumption plan as to how to do that.
So we came aback from China, and as I about do aback I appointment someplace, I address a adventure and I do a painting about that place. And in this case I wrote a adventure and I broadcast it to assorted friends, including this guy who had bought Merchant du Vin and Pike [Brewing]. And Pike was aloof allotment of Merchant du Vin. So if he capital Merchant du Vin he had to buy Pike. And he calls me and says, “You’re the alone actuality able of business our beer in Asia. Would you and Rose Ann appear and break at our abode and allocution about that?”
So we capital to see this added adolescent in Vienna, so we visited him in Yorkshire, England, and I criticized the way they ran the [Pike] Brewery. So, he said, “Well if you don’t like the way we run the brewery, why don’t you aloof buy it back?” So I looked at Rose Ann.
Rose Ann: I looked at him, and said, “If the numbers pencil out, we’ll do it.” And you apperceive that’s boxy for the Brits, at that time women absolutely had no abode in business. This was actual abnormal for us to be a bedmate and wife team.
Charles: Aback in actuality Rose Ann is the one that is business savvy, anyway.
Rose Ann: He was the sales person, I was the one that fabricated it all work.
Was that because of your time starting the Laurelhurst specialty aliment abundance Truffles? Because you were a dental hygienist before, right?
Rose Ann: Aback I accelerating aerial academy aback in 1964, a woman could be a teacher, a nurse, a secretary, or you could go into a medical acreage like dental hygienistry. And I looked at that and none of it was actual ambrosial but dental hygiene pays well. [Laughs]. So I anticipation I could get into that. So, I chose that medical career that was array of a agency to an end. My parents had no money, so it provided me with a acceptable assets and I could alive on my own. I was acceptable at what I did.
What was Truffles, the specialty aliment store, like?
Rose Ann: It was in Time Magazine in 1977 as one of the top bristles specialty aliment aliment in the country, and I was the buyer. So I was accomplishing the purchasing. It was absolutely added of the aliment that absorbed me but you accept to apperceive the business ancillary to accomplish it work.
Charles: Rose Ann is absolutely good, she’s a numbers actuality and she’s always, in our 51 years of marriage, she’s the one that has handled the business aspect of work.
Rose Ann: I paid the bills.
What is it like to absorb about your absolute alliance in a additional relationship, your business relationship?
Rose Ann: It’s the aforementioned relationship. We are partners, we are activity ally in all of it.
Charles: Aback you accept a business accomplice who you accept ultimate assurance in, that’s a actual nice thing.
Going aback to aback you awash Pike Brewing. This gets aback to a big affair in ability beer appropriate now which is bounded affairs and whether it matters. So area do you guys acreage on this, do you anticipate bounded affairs is important for the ability beer movement?
Rose Ann: My acumen is that it’s the autonomy, it’s adhering to the axial business on which the business was built. And if addition broker allows you to accept the freedom to run the business as it should be run, I anticipate that’s OK because it still has that bounded autonomy. It’s aback a big company, i.e. Budweiser, comes in and gradually eats abroad at the aesthetics of the aggregation and the beers. And overtime they achievement their chump is not activity to apprehension the differences, but you do apprehension the differences. You apprehension aback the beers accept been compromised.
So you guys aren’t affairs Elysian Beer [which was bought by Budweiser’s ancestor aggregation in 2015] aback you go to the grocery store?
Charles: No, we are not. We don’t personally, we would never, and we don’t as a company… There’s a acumen they don’t put Budweiser on the label. It’s adroit rather than craft. It’s deceptive. And added to that, they are aloof a agglomeration of bastards. I accept several books actuality about the history of that aggregation [Budweiser] and it’s not a nice history.
I anticipate aback you started you capital bodies to annual beer more, do you anticipate we’ve gotten there? Do bodies annual beer enough?
Charles: Able-bodied I’d like to booty the acclaim but I’m not abiding I can. But, absolutely. At the time that we started there was so little ability of beer. Like with IBUs [International Bitterness Units], we were one of the aboriginal companies to put IBUs on the characterization and now about anybody that comes in knows what IBUs is.
And the styles of beer accept changed. It started with aureate beer, the easy-to-drink beers, the training auto of beer. And that appearance is not so acknowledged anymore. What’s acknowledged now is IPA, and stout, and acerb beers.

Rose Ann: Able-bodied we feel acerb about Planned Parenthood. I grew up in a time aback there was no Planned Parenthood and auspiciously I didn’t charge the casework of Planned Parenthood but I did apperceive bodies who could accept acclimated Planned Parenthood in those days. I am able backer of women’s rights, I anticipate that for years were additional chic citizens.
Charles: Aback did those years stop?
Rose Ann: No, they are still activity on, but aback I got affiliated I couldn’t be a attestant on a acclaim card. Even admitting I was managing the money, I had to put Charles on the blast to accredit me to accept admission to that acclaim agenda annual or a blockage annual or whatever it was. So, I anticipate Planned Parenthood is at the basis of that, it’s area women’s rights begins. Women charge to accept admission to their health, to their bodies, and I anticipate it’s basic for our apple to not overpopulate the world. I feel actual acerb about it and Charles was absolutely on the lath of Planned Parenthood in the ‘80s.
Charles: And I admired actuality on the board. It’s a actual adherent and acceptable affection organization. Like I said, I was built-in in Oklahoma and I would say a majority of my aerial academy aeon had to get affiliated because they had abounding one another. It’s the best ambagious society, but significantly, it broke a lot of lives.
What do you see for the approaching of Pike Brewing? What do you appetite Pike Brewing to be 30 years from now?
Charles: Able-bodied we achievement that it will be not antithetical to area it is appropriate now. A acceptable brewery. A advantageous brewery employing a hundred-odd bodies and that provides a account to the association in accepting a altar to beer. You appear actuality and you are absorbed in beer, from all of our decorations, to the articles we sell, to the affection it has to the aliment we have, to the ability that our agents have.
Rose Ann: It would be nice to be actuality in 30 years, but as you are apparently acquainted we did allotment affairs with some key advisers four years ago… it was allotment of our plan to accept it continue. By accepting the bodies in abode that accept been active it and can abide to run it, it can go on and be relevant, and be bearing agitative beers. I anticipate the beers that we are bearing now are added agitative than they accept anytime been.
