Stoup Brewing review image

Stoup Brewing

Stoup Brewing is a well-kept secret to anyone who doesn’t live in Ballard. Drinking here is like having a beer in your buddy’s garage where he brews his own. There’s a wall covered completely in bumper stickers, the bar shares a room with the massive beer-making tanks, and there’s a rotating food truck parked outside for when you get the drunchies. You won’t find any mango-guava weisse here - just seriously well-done classics like pilsner, IPA, and saison. Use this place during any time of year - during winter, the main tasting room has plenty of seating, and when it gets warm, the garage doors open up and you can sit outside on a patio table.
