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 and 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.  Our English-style Stout or Italian Pilsner may not be completely traditional, but they are definitely tasty!

Currently Available


Description: A New-England style (aka hazy) IPA made with 20 lb/bbl of fresh Citra hops from Roy Farms (Moxee, WA) in the whirlpool, along with Citra Cryo hops and a hint of Simcoe on the cold side.

NEW  Asari Amber

Description: An American amber with a light to medium body and bright appearance. Notes of rich bread and caramel backed by subtle fruity and earthy hop flavor. Low to moderate bitterness so the malts and hops can shine. Not your average boring amber - this one is packed with flavor! 

Name: A great Formula 1 driver, as well as a corner at Monza - one of the great race tracks of the world

NEW  Get Off My Lawn Dunkelweizen

Description:  A Bavarian-style wheat beer (e.g. amber hefeweizen). Smooth and creamy with a soft mouthfeel, a bit more rich and bready than a summer hefeweizen with hints of toast, yet still refreshing and light. Yeast derived notes of banana and clove, skewed sightly towards banana. A perfect beer for the Fall months!

Name: Apparently this style is popular with the older crowd in Germany.

Name: We just went with the obvious.

Malt: UK Marris Otter, 2 Row, Vienna

Hops: FRESH Centennial, Centennial Cryo, a dash of Mosaic

Deets: 5.8% ABV, ~40 IBU, 4.3 SRM, 0.71 BU:GU

Party on the Isar Helles Bock

Description: Sometimes called a Maibock, and similar to a Festbier, our Helles Bock (#2 in our Oktoberfest series) is a strong lager with a prominent grainy sweetness, a subtle toasted character, and just enough bitterness and hop character to encourage another sip! Smooth, creamy, and extremely drinkable despite the higher ABV. Bring on Oktoberfest!

Name: The Isar River flows through Munich and is a popular spot for gatherings.

Malt: German Pilsner, Vienna, Munich

Hops: Hallertau Tradition, Perle

Deets: 6.6% ABV, 28 IBU, 4.9 SRM, 0.47 BU:GU

Delicate, crisp, and clean with a beautiful grain character and supporting hop notes of noble earthiness, citrus, and stone fruit. Well balanced and crushable!

Name: The malt all comes from the Palouse region of WA state.

Malt: Baronesse Pilsner grown by Joseph's Grainery in Colfax, WA

Hops: Hallertau Tradition, Citra, Mandarina Bavaria

Deets: 5.3% ABV, 25 IBU, 2.7 SRM, 0.50 BU:GU

Don't Hassle the Hoff Marzen

Description: German-inspired Marzen (amber lager) that we make every year around Oktoberfest. Rich, bready, toasty, and delicious! Restrained bitterness to let the malt complexity shine.

Hops: Willamette, Adeena

Deets: 6.0% ABV, 21 IBU, 10.4 SRM, 0.37 BU:GU

 Veloce Italian Pilsner

Description: Our popular Veloce is back! An Italian Pilsner is a German-style pilsner that has been dry hopped with European hop varieties. Restraint is key – this isn’t an IPA! Veloce uses a mix of US and German pilsner malts for a nice bready malt backbone, is hopped relatively heavily (for a lager) on the hot side, and then finished with a subtle dry hop in the fermenter. The result is a crisp and clean lager with a refreshing floral and spicy hop note, and a touch of bitterness at the end.

Name:  Veloce means fast in Italian.

Malt: German and US Pilsner

Hops: German Tettnang, German Perle, German Saphir

Deets: 5.3% ABV, 31 IBU, 3.3 SRM, 0.64 BU:GU

Malt: Pilsner, White Wheat, Flaked Oats

Hops: Strata, Citra

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.

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.


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. All 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!
