We create innovative, flavorful, and inviting beers. The majority of our grains and hops are North American grown, with a preference for those produced in the Pacific Northwest. Regardless of European, English, or American beer style, we select and blend these high-quality, local ingredients to achieve our flavor profiles. While we love the Old World malts and hops and use them on occasion, we’re committed to primarily using local and sustainably produced ingredients in an effort to make our business as sustainable as possible. Our English-style Stout or Italian Pilsner may not be completely traditional, but they are definitely tasty!
NEW Mohr Street Pilsner
Description: A contemporary all-malt pilsner featuring a blend of US and German malts and hops. Clean, crisp, and bright with a nice grainy flavor, subtle spice and fruit hop character, and a smooth bitterness to clear the palette for the next drink.
Name: The street our brewery sits on was called Mohr Street before the City of Seattle annexed Ballard in 1907 and renamed it to NW 50th. FREE BALLARD!!
Malt: Pilsner (German and US)

Deets: 5.2% ABV, 30 IBU, 3.2 SRM, 0.6 BU:GU
NEW Nordkurve Schwarzbier (aka Black Lager)

Tightwad Hill IPA
Description: A west coast(ish) IPA fermented with a thiol-boosted yeast strain. Light to medium bodied, clear, with a moderate level of bitterness. The slightly sweet malt body blends well with the prominent hop notes of citrus, tropical fruit, and pine, and the thiol-boosted yeast strain provides an additional tropical fruit boost.

The soft and mild malt body is the perfect canvas for huge hop flavors and aromas of citrus, tropical fruit, and stone fruit - specifically candied cherry and raspberry. Soft, smooth, and juicy - like a hazy should be!
Name: All the clever hazy names are taken. That or maybe we're not clever. This is the best we could come up with!
Malt: Pilsner, 2-Row, Flaked Oats
Hops: Citra, HBC630, Idaho 7

WHAT IS BU:GU? And why we think it matters.
IBUs, or International Bitterness Units, are a reasonable measure of a beer's bitterness, but they don't tell the entire story - the amount of malt is also important. Malt adds sweetness to beer, while hops add bitterness and aroma. So, a lower gravity (lower alcohol) beer with the same IBUs as a higher gravity (higher alcohol) beer will taste more bitter because there is less malty sweetness to offset the hoppy bitterness. The ratio between these two aspects - the bitterness unit to gravity unit - is BU:GU.
In general a BU:GU of 0.5 is considered balanced. Greater than 0.5 is hop forward, and less than 0.5 is malt forward.
We have teamed up with Trail Bend Taproom - literally right next door - to provide you great food options. You can order directly from your table using their QR code or order ahead of time here.

Wheelie Pop Brewing is owned by two friends, Jeremy and Mark, and their families. The two of them met through their sons, and quickly became friends - spurred by their shared love of motorcycles, racing, and beer.
Where did the name Wheelie Pop come from? Their boys used to call wheelies 'wheel pops' back in preschool and they thought it would make a fun name.
