Identify This Pike Place Painting Print?

Help me identify this painting hanging at Pike Brewing Company in Seattle.

Here is an iPhone-snapped picture of it.

It (or a print of it) is hanging at The Pike Brewing Company in Seattle.

I feel like it is not some cheap dime store painting, but I'm no expert.

Thanks Mefi!

Looks like digital (Adobe Illustrator) print, but I can't ID it for you. Just send a message to Pike and ask who the artist is.

I wonder if it's an original? From the history section of their site:
Finkel, who majored in design in collegeā€¦

The labels were created by Charles [Finkel], inspired by views of the entrance to the art deco market. The original logo was cut out of a stencil. He later switched to a computer to do the designs, but always retained the stenciled look.

Also, the bottle at the top next to the Space Needle has Pike Place written on it. That said, it doesn't seem to be his style. Here is his design site.
