OUR BEER

 

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, as well as in a sustainable fashion. Regardless of European, English, or American beer style, we select and blend these high-quality ingredients to achieve our flavor profiles.  While we love Continental malts and hops, and use them when necessary, we’re committed to using local and sustainably produced ingredients as much as possible in an effort to make our business as sustainable as possible!

Deets: 5.5% ABV

Availability: 4 oz, 12 oz, 16 oz in taproom. Cans to-go

The Original + Simple Syrup

Deets: 5.3% ABV

Availability: 4 oz, 12 oz, 16 oz in taproom.

Ginger & Juice

Description: Now we're talking! The Original with a splash of OJ! The citrus from the OJ pairs extremely well with the ginger and the refreshment level is off the charts!

Availability: 12 oz in taproom.

Fruit Flavored

Description: Go crazy! Add any of our Torani syrup flavors to The Original for a dash of sweetness and a blast of fruit! We especially like the Pomegranate and Raspberry, but they're all good! Get a flight to see which flavors you prefer!

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 the bitterness.  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.

ABOUT US

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.

BREWING


All of our beers are created in-house on our 10 BBL brewhouse (below left photo). The brewhouse was manufactured by Premier Stainless Systems in 2007 and is a 2-vessel configuration with a combined mash/lauter tun and combined kettle/whirlpool. The hot liquor tank (HLT) and mash/lauter tun are stacked to save space.  The kettle is gas-fired, while the HLT is electric. 


We have 6 fermentation vessels (below center photo) -- (2) 10 BBL and (2) 20 BBL FVs manufactured by Premier Stainless in 2007 and (2) 10 BBL FVs manufactured by Specific Mechanical in 2021. The numbers on the tanks are Jeremy's favorite MotoGP motorcycle racers (most of which have retired - we might have to update the numbers!).


We have 7 bright/serving tanks (below right photo) which are single wall (e.g. no glycol cooling jacket) and thus are located in our walk-in cooler to stay cold -- (5) 10 BBL units and (2) 20 BBL units. These were also manufactured by Premier Stainless in 2007. They act as serving tanks as well as bright tanks. Most of our beers spend at least 2 weeks in these tanks to condition - sometimes longer depending on the style.


All of the Premier Stainless equipment was purchased used from The Ram Brewery's Northgate location when it closed in 2020. A lot of local brewers have brewed on this system over the years. We love hearing their stories and are stoked to carry on the tradition!
