What's On Tap in Ballard

Citra IPA

ABV: 5.90% IBU: 50.00 SRM: 3.00 
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.

German Style Pilsner

Imported German 2-row barley and Roy Farms ADHA 1940 hops give this German-style pils it's crisp, clean character.  Warning: this beer's subtle grain sweetness, spicy hop aroma and refreshingly dry, hop-forward finish may elicit a spontaneous Prost!

Mosaic Pale Ale

ABV: 5.30% IBU: 39.00 SRM: 5.00 
A highly drinkable, hop forward beer with a classic American Pale Ale malt bill. Heavy handed Mosaic dry hopping gives this beer a nose packed full of citrus and mango. Up front aroma, balanced bittering and a moderate body just beg for another taste...and another...and another...

NW Red

ABV: 5.00% IBU: 40.00 SRM: 12.00 
Our Northwest Red Ale provides a distinctly Northwest hop character balanced with a restrained malt sweetness. We use 2 Row barley along with Best Maltz Red X to create a rich, red color and a smooth, satisfying taste. A hint of chocolate seals the deal.


Robust Porter

ABV: 6.20% IBU: 45.00 SRM: 31.00 
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 wheat and roasted rye.

Mixtape Romeo

ABV: 5.00% IBU: 32.00 SRM: 3.00 
In the entire history of humankind, there has never been a more profound expression of love than the personalized mixtape. Hours of deliberation about which songs to share from your home tape collection followed by hours of tiny handwritten playlists with tiny hearts incorporated wherever possible. Follow that with "play"-"record", change tape, "play"-"record" change tape............This beer is our mixtape for you. First we brewed the beer with pilsner malt for a light body and gentle malt sweetness. Then we lagered the beer for several weeks to create a clean, refreshing crispness. As our mixtape final song, we dry hopped with Nelson Sauvin and Citra for aromas of white grapes and citrus. Load it up, press play and enjoy.

Cervecita Mexican Lager

ABV: 4.80% IBU: 14.00 SRM: 2.00 
Our Mexican Lager is perfect for sunny days on the patio or the beach... preferably in flip flops. Since we can't guarantee sunny days in Seattle, we kept this lager light and bright and irresistibly crushable, sunshine not required. Salud!

Good Idea IPA

ABV: 6.10% IBU: 62.00 SRM: 3.00 

Category: Ale Type/ Descriptors: 

Hey! We have an idea. It's a really good idea. Let's brew a delicious IPA with Vic Secret, Galaxy and Simcoe hops. Those hops will really bring the passion fruit, citrus and pineapple.

Multiplayer Guild IPA

ABV: 6.20% IBU: 49.00 SRM: 3.00 

Over the last year and counting, Washington breweries set off on an adventure of trials and challenges that threaten a once vibrant and thriving local industry and unite to keep their communities healthy while shielding fellow breweries from the jaws of defeat. In the spirit of the WA brewing community, brewers from across the state came together to produce Multiplayer Guild Collab, an IPA benefiting the WA Brewers Guild. This IPA is a reflection of a connected and collaborative industry, working together to brew another day and pour another pint. Stoup's version of this beer is a Northwest Style IPA showcasing experimental ADHA 1624 hops and donated Amarillo hops from Crosby Hop Farms.


Joy Seeker Hazy IPA

ABV: 6.40% IBU: 40.00 SRM: 4.00 
In times like these, life can start to feel pretty challenging. Yeah, you're doing ok, exercising and eating right, but something is missing. You just can't quite put your finger on it. Well we know what it! The world could use a lot more of it right now. Thankfully, joy is out there, you just have to look for it. Let's get started right now with a pint of this delicious hazy IPA. It's got all the happy hops: Citra, Mosaic, Azacca and a touch of Sabro. Basically it's a citrus, mango and tropical fruit glass of goodness. Start with a pint, then get out there and keep looking. Joy is out there!


Sandals & Flannels (Hazy) IPA

ABV: 7.00% IBU: 56.00 SRM: 4.00 
Call us old-fashioned or retro or...old, but sometimes we long for the days of yesteryear. The days when Seattle was rainy and grungy and kind of greasy. When you didn't have to iron your flannel shirts and Birkenstocks were a fashion statement (only if they were really smelly and worn within a millimeter of the asphalt). In an effort to celebrate those angst filled days, we brewed this hazy IPA (like the skies back then, get it?). Unfortunately, due to our naturally sunny dispositions and close proximity to so many hopeful millennials, we couldn't help but pack it with the brightest, citrusiest, tropical fruitiest hops we could find-Citra, Cashmere and Galaxy. So, celebrate those glory days with Sandals & Flannels IPA, but also celebrate the new you that showers daily and brushes your hair.


Know Better, Do Better IPA

ABV: 6.20% IBU: 48.00 SRM: 3.00 

This bright NW Style IPA with Caliente, Mosaic and Simcoe hops was brewed as a reminder that it's ok to grow and learn and continue to become a better person. So you didn't know that people of color and women are regularly left out of the conversation, devalued, harassed or worse? Well now you do. That means you now have the opportunity to be a better person and actively work to make a change. In the words of the great Maya Angelou, “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” No more excuses.


Vic Secret IPA

ABV: 7.40% IBU: 65.00 SRM: 6.00 
This IPA has large whirlpool additions of Mosaic and is dry hopped with Australian hop variety Vic Secret. This IPA packs a wallop of passionfruit and pineapple aromas and flavors.


Gaia's Whimsy

ABV: 6.00% IBU: 4.00 SRM: 5.00 

Gaia's Whimsy is a blend of wheat beers fermented with Bavarian Hefeweizen, House Ale, and Kveik yeasts. We aged them for 12-15 months in freshly dumped red wine barrels on wine lees with a blend of brettanomyces and lactobacillus. The result is a lightly tart, dry and refreshing beer with just a touch of funk.

In the Meantime IPA

ABV: 6.30% IBU: 41.00 SRM: 4.00 
With life getting back to "normal" it's time to make plans to hang with friends, take vacations, see a show, sit at a bar and...well you get the gist. We look forward to the good times to come, but in the meantime, feel free to slow your roll, relax your mind and enjoy this tropical fruit, citrus and mango-full IPA. Galaxy, Citra Cryo, Mosaic Cryo and El Dorado hops at your service.


Rise Up IPA

ABV: 6.40% IBU: 60.00 SRM: 3.00 
This latest in our rotating IPA series is a beer that gives and GIVES! To us is gives an education because we got to brew with a super new experimental hop called HRC 2006009-074. There will be bonus points for anyone who can remember the name but honestly, flavor will be way easier to remember. With some Strata in the mix, this beer promises notes of strawberry, passionfruit and citrus. But while it is fruity - it also leans toward dank to satisfy the intense IPA cravings. Rise Up IPA also gives to SMASH Seattle, a local organization that provides support to musicians in need of health care. VIP ticket holders to Friday's Stoup concert featuring Smokey Brights will get the first look at and taste of this new beer and a portion of proceeds from all sales will be donated to SMASH.

Idahome IPA

ABV: 6.90% IBU: 42.00 SRM: 4.00 

Grown in our neighboring state of Idaho, Idaho 7 hops are powerful little packets of tropical fruit and pine goodness. Idaho is also the home state of our head brewer, Brad. Brad likes Idaho 7 hops. Coincidence?!...We think yes. Yes, it is pure coincidence. Doesn't make this NW style IPA any less delicious, though! Citra and Loral Cryo hops add more citrus and herbal notes. This beer has us all dreaming about Idahome.


Space Garden IPA

ABV: 7.10% IBU: 40.00 SRM: 4.00 

We brewed this hazy gem for our friends at the Space Needle and Chihuly Garden and Glass. Can you think of a more beautiful place to drink a beer?! And if you're going to brew a beer for two of the coolest places in the world, you've got to add some of the greatest hops ever grown, Citra, Simcoe and Mosaic. This IPA has got citrus, berry and pine galore. Perfect for drinking perched high above our beautiful city.


Laugh Bazooka IPA

If you've been to Stoup, chances are you've experienced the laugh bazooka. This is no instrument of war. It's a spreader of pure joy and contagious smiles. It comes out of nowhere and will sweep you off of your feet with it's sheer power. Our man Dexter has the best laugh in the business and we're honoring that big bear hug of a laugh with its own beer.
