Founders Buy Back Pike Brewery

Charles and Rose Ann Finkel were truly two of the prime movers for the beer revolution in America and brought many of the best imported beers to the U.S. via the import company, Merchant Du Vin, that they founded in 1978. They also founded Pike Brewery in Seattle’s famous Pike Place in 1989. The Finkels left the beer business in 1997 to pursue less hectic interests. Perhaps not hectic enough though, because they’re back. The Finkels have reportedly reaquired the Pike Brewery under undisclosed terms. Merchant Du Vin and the Seattle brewery will operate separately going forward.
