How did we get here?

Two thirsty science nerds and a curious connoisseur walk in to a brew pub...

Okay, so it wasn’t quite like that, but it might as well have been. 

Brad Benson and Lara Zahaba – two hopeless drink and chow hounds. Brad, a beer-loving chemist who has been a loyal student, courter, and crafter for years that number beyond his fingers and toes. Lara, a lover of all things gastro – from a savory plate to a smart pour. The pair, professionally and recreationally, have spent the better part of their years together improving their palate’s quality of life.  It was only a matter of time before they ponied up and joined a community of talented purveyors.

Enter, Robyn Schumacher – friend, teacher and self-professed beer geek graduated Cicerone. She had the same dream. Fitting that Robyn’s infatuation with beer bloomed under the tutelage of a Biology degree. Robyn’s regard for all things hop and malt only deepened while her teaching career flourished.  Brewing in her spare time was the final hook. Call it what you will – the stars aligning, spontaneous fermentation – Stoup Brewing was born.
