Pike 51 takes the name from the early days of Chicago Dr. where the brewery makes its home. Pike 51 is actually the second brewery in less than a year to open in Hudsonville which was actually a dry community only a few short years ago. Neighboring White Flame Brewing Co. opened January of this year to great success and Pike 51 is sure to be another hit. Make sure to pay them a visit, and ask for the newly announced imperial “Knight’s Brown” which clocks in at 7.6% ABV and is rich with chocolate and toffee flavors sure to please.
