OUR BEERS

 

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!

WHEELIE POP PROTOTYPE SERIES


Prototype Series beers are our small batch, limited quantity, and often experimental beers that we release periodically, either on-draft or in bottles. They may be barrel-aged, bottle conditioned with “Brett”, a new beer style for us, or general experiments in flavor profiles or fermentation regimes. They’ll always be interesting, full of flavor, and exclusive.


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.

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.
