Silence Has a Sound Winter Lager

ABV: 6.40% IBU: 28.00 SRM: 5.00 

This beer was brewed with a base of Vienna, Pilsner and Munich malts then fermented using lager yeast. It is malt forward, with a light sweetness and toasty flavor, but long, cold conditioning creates a crisp, clean finish. It's got all of the flavor and satisfaction of a big winter beer, but without all the heaviness and noise.

CATEGORIES: Lager, Traditionally Winter

German Style Pilsner

ABV: 5.20% IBU: 37.00 SRM: 3.00 
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...

A London Brown Ale is an historic session beer style. Our New Kick Coffee Brown is bursting with aromas of toffee and caramel. The body and flavors are smooth with hints of coffee and chocolate. This beer is low in ABV but packed with flavor. We added Costa Rican cascara (dried skins of the coffee fruit) from Stamp Act coffee to the boil. Perfect for a cool, fall evening with friends.

Keeps On Giving IPA

ABV: 7.10% IBU: 63.00 SRM: 4.00 

This generous Northwest style IPA gives a sturdy, balanced malt base and then hop, after hop, after delicious hop. We start with Loral and Simcoe Cryo hops in the whirlpool for the citrus flavor and grapefruit aromas. Then, (oh yeah!, there's more) we dry hop with Amarillo, Bru-1 and Citra Cryo for more orange, stone fruit and citrus. Now that's a beer that keeps on giving!



ABV: 6.80% IBU: 26.00 SRM: 5.00 
We start with a grain bill of Genie and Pilsner Malt from LINC Malt, spelt, raw and malted wheat then fermented with two of our favorite Belgian yeast strains. The result is a crisp, dry beer with aromas of fruity esters and a touch of pepper.


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.


Thesis Generator IPA

ABV: 6.90% IBU: 54.00 SRM: 4.00 

Over here at Stoup, we miss our school days. We miss 5 paragraph essays,long story problems and wearing backpacks filled with pee chee folders. Why, oh why is the fun so fleeting?! In an effort to keep that school spirit alive, we decided it would be fun to write a thesis paper. Really, how hard could it be? To get started, we needed to generate a thesis statement. This is what we came up with: "To make a perfect IPA, you must use delicious ingredients and add just the right hops to make the flavor and aroma pop". Then we researched thousands of hop combinations and determined that Loral, Talus, HBC 630 and El Dorado together would add aromas of pink grapefruit, berry and pineapple and would be freakin' delicious. Then we brewed our Thesis Generator IPA, drank it and determined that our thesis statement was 100% correct. Man, writing a thesis is soooo easy! 


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.


Powder Tracks Winter Ale

ABV: 8.20% IBU: 51.00 SRM: 11.00 
Old pathways lost under a blanket of freshly fallen snow make way for new tracks on trails yet to be made. Powder Tracks Winter Ale, a malt forward beer with chocolate and caramel notes touched with a hint of citrus aroma, will call you to forget the noise and embrace the quiet of a winter trail.

Living Single, Drinking Double Hazy IPA

ABV: 8.00% IBU: 44.00 SRM: 5.00 

Living alone has its pros and cons. Pros: you can leave your dirty socks in the living room as long as you damn well please, you don't have to fight over which Netflix movie to watch on Friday nights, and you can eat peanut butter straight from the jar. Cons: you and only you are responsible for picking up your stinky socks, peanut butter without jelly is sometimes kind of lonely. Rather than try to double fist the single living blues away, how about a DOUBLE hazy IPA? It's got all the punch of two beers, but in one glass. Brilliant! And to make it even better, we added a whole party full of hops to play. Moteuka, Simcoe, Cashmere, Mosaic and a touch of Sabro bring the lime, melon and citrus. Cheers, single living friends! You are the king/queen of your castle.


00 Italian Pilsner

ABV: 5.50% IBU: 32.00 SRM: 3.00 
Italian brewers like to add a little flair to their pilsners by dry hopping for extra depth. In our take on the style, aromas of red berries, light spice and floral notes from Adeena, Hallertau Blanc and Loral hops are carried beautifully on a base of crisp, light pilsner malt. Named for the famous 00 flour prized by pizzaiolos the world over. 

CATEGORIES: Lager, Pilsner

Stoup Dog IPA

ABV: 6.70% IBU: 60.00 SRM: 3.00 
Brewed for our friends at the Barking Dog Alehouse, this Dog has a bit of bark with a delightfully dank bite. Generous additions of Enigma and Talus and just enough Simcoe, Loral and Citra to leash it all together, this good girl brings all the resinous, citrus goodness you expect from a classic Northwest IPA. Raise a glass with your favorite pack, and listen to this dog howl.


Please & Thank You IPA (Fall 2021)

ABV: 6.50% IBU: 68.00 SRM: 4.00 
Why yes, I'd love a pint of the Please & Thank you IPA. This newest version of our rotating Hop Exploration Series is dry hopped with experimental Hop 1120 from Mill 95 in Idaho. It's supplemented by Citra and Mosaic Cryo Hops for aromas of mango, citrus, and an interesting herbal quality. A balanced malt profile and a beautiful looking beer to boot? Yes, please! & thank you...because my mama raised me right.


2021 Shapka Barrel Aged Imperial Stout

ABV: 10.00% IBU: 90.00 SRM: 55.00 

A big, bold, roasty stout brewed with generous amounts of English crystal malt and roasted barley. Aggressively hopped yet balanced with malt sweetness and a full-bodied mouthfeel. Aging in bourbon barrels smooths out the rough edges and contributes notes of wood, bourbon, chocolate and vanilla.
