As scientists, we hold the microorganisms and chemical processes that create beer in the highest esteem. As artists, we revel in a good pour.
The dual disposition honors traditional styles perfected by earlier brew-masters as well as elevates craft brewing by continually seeking a better pint.

The newest additions to our line-up:
Fresh Hop Pale Ale
ABV: 5.7 SRM: 5.0 IBU: You tell us!
Now this is a special beer. Hop harvest comes only once a year and if you’re lucky enough to live close to one of the major hop-growing regions of the world (and we are), you can pick up freshly harvested hops from the Willamette Valley of Oregon, bring them home and brew the same day. And that’s just what we did. Packed with 100 pounds of Cascade fresh hops, this pale ale is the poster child for freshness. Drink it fast because when it’s gone, it’s gone!
Brewed for 2nd Anniversary Celebration of Pint Defiance in Tacoma
ABV: 6.2% SRM: 5 IBU 45
Bittered with Milllennium & Falconer’s Flight, Finished wih Cascade, Falconer’s Flight & Palisades, Dry hopped with Amarillo & Simcoe. This is not a “wheat” beer in the sense that many will expect (like a hefeweizen). The wheat gives the beer a slight nuttiness and lightens up the body.
ABV 5.9% IBU 50 SRM 4
We like to call this one Sunshine In a Glass … or Sunshine In Your Belly because it won’t stay in that glass long. Our Citra® IPA is designed to be light and bright in both color and body. Your first sniff will elicit images of tropical fruit and citrus thanks to a healthy dose of Citra® hops. Enjoy a pint of this and you might just find yourself gazing skyward, pondering how in the heck sunshine made its way into your glass.

Silver medal in the Session Ales category at the 2014 Washington Beer Awards ®
ABV: 5%, IBU: 45, Lovibond: 5
A vibrantly golden brew crafted with the Northwest beer drinker in mind. Hopped to satisfy, moderately dry in the finish, and restrained in alcohol content, our India Session Ale is ideal for a long Seattle afternoon of beer consumption with friends. Or alone. Who are we to judge?
Gold medal in the Wheat and Rye Beers category at the 2014 Washington Beer Awards ®
ABV: 5%, IBU: 13, Lovibond: 5
Close your eyes, take a sip of this beer and you’re sure to be transported to a tree-lined, sun-speckled biergarten in Munich. We honor tradition by brewing this beer using decoction mashing techniques and fermenting with a German yeast strain that imparts prominent banana and clove notes. The wheat gives this beer a crisp, slightly tart, refreshing finish.
mk Special Bitter
ABV: 5.3% IBU: 35 SRM: 8
A highly drinkable beer sure to satisfy in all seasons. English crystal malt is countered nicely by a good dose of spicy Golding hops and a satisfyingly dry finish. This is a gently hop-forward beer balanced by notes of light caramel and honey.
ABV: 5.5%, IBU: 40, Lovibond: 14
Our Northwest Red Ale provides a distinctly Northwest hop character balanced with a restrained malt sweetness. We use 2 Row along with Best Maltz Red X to create a rich, red color and a smooth, satisfying taste. A hint of chocolate seals the deal
ABV: 7.5%, IBU: 60, Lovibond: 7
This beer greets you with floral and citrus aromas, the result of aggressive Cascade dry-hopping. The addition of Chinook hops leave you with a lingering pineyness reminiscent of a hike in the mountains. A light malt sweetness provides balance while maintaining the hop forward character.
Silver medal in the Robust Porter category at the 2014 World Beer Cup®
Silver medal in the Robust Porter category at the 2014 Washington Beer Awards ®
ABV: 6.2%, IBU: 45, Lovibond: 34
Rich in color and character, our robust porter conjures up memories of decadent chocolate treats dipped in coffee. Hints of dark chocolate, roasted coffee and light malty sweetness are the result of a complex malt profile including chocolate malt, roasted barley, roasted wheat and roasted rye.
In the Fermenters & Coming Soon!

Stoup Extra Wicket Pale Ale
Brewed for Tom Douglas’ Croquet Tournament to benefit Food Lifeline
ABV: 6.1% SRM: 5 IBU 32
If there ever was a beer to improve your mallet skills, this is it. Our Extra Wicket Pale Ale is golden in color, moderate in body and bittered for balance. Hop aroma is reminiscent of summer with soft floral tones and light citrus and apricot. With this beer in your hand, wickets will appear larger, grass will look greener and one-handed croquet will seem normal.
SMASH Pale Ale
ABV: 7.0% IBU: 54 SRM: 5
That’s SMASH as in Single Malt and Single Hop. Halcyon, a traditional English malt, provides for a light, biscuit flavor, while Chinook hops give this beer a piney, spicy element. Just one malt and one hop variety living together in perfect beer harmony.
T2R Haymaker III IPA
ABV: 10.5 IBU: 90 SRM: 6
Hops: Lots of “C” hops (Chinook, Centennial, Cascade, Columbus and some Simcoe for good measure).
Malt bill: Pale, Pils, cara Pils, C15 caramel and a little kettle sugar.
Given our love of science, it should be no surprise that we named our first-ever triple IPA after T2R, a class of bitter receptors on your tongue. We had a little fun with the hopping procedures, Mill hops, mash hops, kettle hops, hop bursting, hop imploding, hop exploding, hop back, dry hops, hop missiles and rockets. We slept on hop pillows the night before the brew. We prayed to the hop gods and even the hop devil, just to cover our bases! Ultimately, we decided to go for balance in the beer. You can put some T2R on your T2Rs at the Stoup tap room and a few select events and locales around town.
Dagon* Golden Strong Ale
ABV: 8.7% IBU: 35 SRM: 6
Cascadian Dark Ale
ABV: 6.5 IBU: 79 SRM: 28
Hops and Darkness meet in this wonderfully complex beer. Dark and malty with a hefty helping of Northwest hops, this beer is sure to satisfy both malt and hop lovers alike.
ABV: 7%, IBU: 30
A full-bodied winter treat in the English tradition. This well balanced beer is loaded with rich layers of malt that are first evident in the aromas and follow through on the palate. Savory, toffee-carmel flavors are complemented by just the right amount of bitterness. A full pint of gratitude to Big Time Brewery for letting us use their very unique yeast.
Bike Rye’d Saison
ABV 6.7% IBU 33 SRM 4
Bike Rye’d Saison is the product of a creative collaboration with Flying Bike Cooperative Brewery. Fermented with French Saison yeast, this beer is delicate and smooth with a bit of spice to keep things interesting. Hints of citrus and pear make this a highly quaffable, delicious springtime brew.
Belgian Pale Ale
(Will be tapped on Sunday, May 11, 2014)
ABV 5.4% IBU 35 SRM 7
Moderate malt, a bit of spice and a light fruity finish define this Pike Brewing Collaboration beer. Hopping combines a blend of Old World and New World flair. Paying homage to the Old World, Hallertau Mittelfruh adds some herbal and spicy notes. Dry hopping with Palisade brings the New World to the finish with just a hint of fruit.
