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. And while we love the Old World malts and hops, we’re committed to using local ingredients in an effort to make our business as sustainable as possible. Our English-style Pale Ale or Italian Pilsner may not be completely traditional, but they are definitely tasty! 


We are beyond excited that our brewery & taproom are now open

with both indoor and outdoor seating options available!

To-go orders are NOW AVAILABLE in the online store!



Currently Available

NEW! Jumpstart IPA

ABV 6.7%    IBUs 48    0.79 BU:GU

Available On Tap, 16oz Cans, & Kegs


There are no dead vehicle batteries here - Jumpstart is a racing term for leaving the starting line a bit too early (D'oh!). Unfortunately, we don't have a cool motorcycle racing story to go along with the name, we just thought it sounded cool - sorry to disappoint :(. The beer itself definitely won't disappoint though! It has a rich malt backbone consisting of 2-row, Pilsner, and Munich malts, as well as a small amount of Malted Rye for some spice. Late additions of Mosaic and Vic Secret hops bring loads of tangerine, pineapple, and berry notes with a bit of pine. A small dose of Citra rounds out the profile with familiar citrus flavors. The aroma on this IPA is fan-freaking-tastic and it delivers a great balance of malt and hops!

NEW! Knickerbrook English-style Ale

ABV 5.2%    IBUs 32    0.72 BU:GU

Available On Tap, 16oz Cans, & Kegs


What the hell is a Knickerbrook you ask? It’s the name of a corner at the Oulton Park Race Circuit which is part of the British Superbike racing series, and we love moto racing! What’s an English-style ale then? It’s our take on an English Bitter, built using ingredients from North America. Balance and drinkability are key. It has a soft malty body with a hint of caramel, balanced by earthy and floral notes from the Willamette and Loral hops, and supported by fruity esters provided by the English yeast strain. The finish is just bitter and dry enough to require another drink. It’s a delicious beer for a sunny summer day!

Galactic Border Patrol Cold IPA

ABV 6.8%    IBUs 45    0.72 BU:GU

Available On Tap and 16oz Cans


Listen up hosers! We have a new Cold IPA, eh. It's called Galactic Border Patrol and it's named after the greatest Canadian beer-themed movie of all time - Strange Brew! What, you say you're too young to remember that movie and you don't know Canadian movies anyway? Take off you hoser! Anyway, this Cold IPA features three of our favorite hops - Mosaic, Strata, and Ekuanot. It's kinda dank, eh. Some berry and citrus flavors too with a little pepper, eh. You hosers may not know what a Cold IPA is, but it's basically just a crisp and clean IPA with a light malt body that has been fermented with lager yeast, eh. A beer worth of the Great White North!   

Cashmere Express Hoppy Lager

ABV 5.6%    IBUs 35    0.72 BU:GU

Available On Tap and 16oz Cans


   Do you like hops? Crisp, clean beer with loads of flavor? Well then this is the beer for you, and it’s not an IPA! Cashmere Express is the third version of one of our favorite beer styles, the hoppy lager. This version is built on a simple malt body consisting of pilsner and pale malts. Loral and Cashmere hops were added very late in the boil, again in the whirlpool, and then as a relatively small dry hop addition. The result is a light to medium bodied beer that is crisp and bright, moderately bitter, and exhibits melon, citrus, floral and earthy notes from the Loral and Cashmere hops. Refreshing and crushable!   

Parabolica IPA

ABV 6.3%    IBUs 43    0.73 BU:GU

Available On Tap and 16oz Cans


   Parabolica you say? Yep, you’ve heard of this one before! Parabolica is our west coast style IPA, and this is batch #2. It is still clear and light to medium bodied, with a crisp and clean malt bill consisting of Pilsner and Pale malts, and a moderate bitterness. This version is a bit crisper than last, and the Simcoe hops have been switched out for Nelson Sauvin hops. Those along with Mosaic, and Idaho 7 hops give this version notes of berry, citrus, tropical fruit, pepper, and pine.  It’s a great combo!   

Rabbit Ear IPA

ABV 6.6%    IBUs 45    0.72 BU:GU

Available On Tap and 16oz Cans


No rabbits (or their ears) were harmed in the making of this IPA. That would be gross. Rabbit Ear is the name of a corner at a race track in California. However, a large amount of Strata hops were definitely harmed! First we threw a bucket of them into 180* wort (whirlpool). A few days later we drowned a bunch more of them in 68* beer (dry hop). That was particularly enjoyable, so we did it AGAIN (double dry hop)!! The Strata hops seemed a little lonely through all of this torture, so we threw some Citra hops in to keep them company. The end result is a light to medium bodied IPA with loads of grapefruit aroma and flavor. It’s delicious, and we’re told the hops didn’t feel a thing.

13 Corners Hefeweizen

ABV 5.1%    IBUs not many    0.72 BU:GU

Available On Tap, 160z Cans, & Kegs


Our last new beer description (Multiplayer IPA – we still have some!) was waaaay too long. Even we almost fell asleep reading it. We apologize. To make up for it this week’s new beer will be described with a Haiku:

 

Soft fluffy mouthfeel

Smooth banana with light clove

Bring on sunny days

 

Get it??? It’s a German-style Weissbier (aka hefeweizen)! We named it 13 Corners and it’s delicious. Why 13 Corners? Let us know if you figure it out!

Helicopter Tail Pale Ale

ABV 5.7%    IBUs 39    0.75 BU:GU

Available On Tap and 16oz Cans



   We’ve all had them - or at least met them. The dogs with so much energy and happiness that they just can’t contain themselves. Their tails wagging so hard and erratically that it causes their hips to bounce from side to side, making walking in a straight line an impossibility – that’s the Helicopter Tail! This Pale Ale is well balanced with a light but slightly sweet maltiness supporting the citrus, tropical, earthy, and floral notes provided by whirlpool and dry hop additions of Centennial, El Dorado, and Comet hops. It’s a delicious and easy drinking beer (not just a low alcohol IPA) that is dedicated to our own departed but still loved Helicopter Tail named Gabby, and to all the other crazy dogs out there and their patient owners!

Highside DIPA

ABV 8.6%    IBUs 66    0.89 BU:GU

Available On Tap and 16oz Cans



   What’s a Highside (besides our great new DIPA)? Just Google “Marc Marquez highside” for all you need to know. Moto races are always going so well – until they aren’t! We named our new double IPA Highside because DIPAs can have the same effect on a night! Especially one as smooth as ours, which drinks like a much lighter IPA due to its mildly sweet maltiness balancing the substantial but smooth bitterness. Centennial, Centennial Cryo, Mosaic, and Ekuanot Cyo hops bring loads of berry, citrus, and pine with a touch of spiciness. A truly delicious and drinkable DIPA – just don’t let it Highside you!

Ascari Amber

ABV 5.8%    IBUs 38    0.70 BU:GU

Available On Tap, 16oz Cans, & Kegs



   A beautiful dark amber color, named after a corner at the iconic Monza race circuit in Italy, this beer is rich with bread, toast, and caramel flavors that are supported by spicy, citrus, and floral notes from Loral and Willamette hops.

Powerslide Oatmeal Stout

ABV 5.5%    IBUs 26    0.50 BU:GU

Only available On Tap


The 1st beer we brewed on our 10 BBL system. It's rich and chocolaty, with a well-balanced roast and smooth mouthfeel. Try it on the side-pull for a nitro-type pour.

Toplivo Russian Imperial Stout

ABV 9.1%    IBUs 60    0.67 BU:GU

Only available  in 16oz Cans



   Brought to you by the brewery whose grand opening was during a major Seattle snowstorm, we’re now introducing our Russian Imperial Stout a week into Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Ugh – we seem to be masters of timing, but this beer has been in the works for a long time! Oh well, a Russian Imperial Stout is a beer style, not a political stance and this sure is a tasty version! It starts off a little sweet with notes of dark chocolate supported by hints of dark fruit, coffee, and a slight roast flavor. It then finishes relatively dry with enough subtle bitterness to command another sip. This may be one of the most drinkable Imperial Stouts you’ve had and is sneaky at 9.1% ABV. Feel free to order a “Putin sucks” if you’d like…we’ll know what you mean!

Hard Seltzer (ABV 6.2%)

Available On Tap



   For those looking for something different - but still made by the Wheelie Pop team - we have Hard Seltzers. These start with a neutral seltzer base that's made onsite & then we add flavored syrup. Flavors include (but are not limited to) blood orange, ruby red grapefruit, watermelon, and green apple. These are a super refreshing and easy drinking!

Prosecco

Available in 187ml bottles



   Another great option for non-beer drinkers (we all know and love one!), is a glass of Prosecco. Normally it's LaMarca, but you never know when the supply chains might throw us a curve ball. Oh yeah, and we have a Moscato (sweet white wine) available as well.

Rotating Cider

Available in 16oz Cans or On Tap



   One more option is our rotating guest cider. It might be on tap, it might be poured fresh from a cold can, but it will always be local and not just a run-of-the-mill dry variety.

Non-alcoholic options




   Looking for something with an ABV of 0%? We've got that covered too! We have Coke, Diet Coke, and Sprite available in cans as well as Italian sodas (same syrups as are available with the Hard Seltzers). We have a drink for the whole crew!

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.
