For the brewers and owners of Stoup Brewing Company, pride has never been exclusive to what’s in the glass. It's also the rewards each day brings, experienced by the staff behind the bar or working in the brewery. For co-owner Robyn Schumacher, beers like this upcoming India Pale Ale are their own reward, when reflecting on life as a teacher before becoming one of only a handful of female brewers. Releasing today, Stoup Brewing Company is happy to continue their support of the LGBTQ community with the release of Marching Juice IPA.
Pride month is in full swing and festive parades are popping up in cities and towns across America. We thought it important to provide a delicious source of fuel to keep those feet moving in support of our right to love and live as we damn well please.
Brewed with Loral Cryo and Caliente hops, the beer takes on an aroma and flavor of stone fruit, citrus, and pine before the accompanying malt marches along the palate leaving you with a crisp, clean sensation. Keeping things short and sweet, the brewery asks that you enjoy a pint of Marching Juice IPA while considering the importance of standing up for yourself and your beliefs.
Or as the brewery puts it ...
"... enjoy a pint of Marching Juice IPA, don your rainbow feather boa and march with pride, joy and a big ole middle finger for anyone who tries to rain on your parade."
Look for this 6.3% ABV, 60 IBU, bit of fun on draft at the brewery. Stoup Brewing Company is located at 1108 NW 52nd Street in Seattle's Ballard neighborhood. For more information on Stoup Brewing Company, visit http://www.stoupbrewing.com.
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
