Pike Brewing Co. has opened Tankard & Tun, a seafood restaurant, and expanded the brewery above its pub at 1415 First Ave. The space is on the lower levels of a mixed-use high-rise.
The project involved renovating what had been four retail spaces flanking a multilevel common area. The spaces were terraced, and the common area has a series of ramps and bridges with many elevation changes that presented a challenge.
To create space for the 1,480-square-foot restaurant, foam and concrete were used to build up floor slabs and make two of the retail areas level with each other.
The expansion is connected to Pike Place Market and Post Alley, and allows Pike Brewing to produce more beer on-site and pair craft beer with local food.
The name Tankard & Tun refers to drinking tankards and Pike Brewery's mash tun brewing vessel.
