Happy Tuesday to those who call the Seattle neighborhood of Ballard home. Born several years ago, from the creative minds of Lara Zahaba, Robyn Schumacher, and Brad Benson; Stoup Brewing Company remains a treasured brewery nestled in the neighborhood. As is their custom, every couple of weeks, the brewery is happy to release another beer for those willing to make the trip into their taproom.
Located at 1108 NW 52nd Street in Seattle, Stoup Brewing Company is pleased to release Jive Ass Slippers IPA. Brewed with a cornucopia of hops including Simcoe, Citra, and Mosaic; this beer contains a distinctive citrus, pine, and stone berry-like personality. Under the light, Jive Ass Slippers looks Pale Yellow and no doubt will inspire thoughts of future sunny walks around the lake or shores of the city. At 6.9% ABV and 50 IBU, Jive Ass Slippers IPA will not only make you smirk at the name but smile after the first of many sips.

About Stoup Brewing Company
"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."
Stoup Brewing is a long held dream of Brad Benson and Lara Zahaba – two hopeless drink and chow hounds. That the two found each other twenty years ago seems fated – Brad, a scientist to the very last DNA strand, would proffer a hypothesis based on proximity and human nature, we’re sure (ahem). Whatever your take, the takeaway is this: Brad loves beer and has been a loyal student, courter, and crafter for years that number beyond his fingers and toes. Lara loves all things gastro – from a savory plate to a smart pour. The pair, professionally and recreationally, have spent the better part of their hours improving their palate’s quality of life. It was only a matter of time before they ponied up and joined the 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, simultaneous fermentation – Stoup Brewing was born. We’re thrilled to be a part of Seattle’s burgeoning craft beer community in Ballard’s Brewing District.
