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 Mt. Crushmore Cold IPA
Description: A west-coast style IPA with a light malt body that has been fermented with lager yeast, both of which are designed to accentuate the hop flavors and aromas. This iteration of our award-winning Cold IPA series is bursting with hop notes of white grape, blueberry, tropical fruit, with balancing notes of citrus and pine. It finishes dry and with a moderate bitterness that begs another sip!
Name: A great song, and a cool name for a crushable IPA!
Malt: Pilsner, 2-Row, Vienna, Jasmine Puffed Rice
Hops: Nelson, Mosaic, & Idaho 7
Deets: 6.5% ABV, 45 IBU, 3.1 SRM, 0.76 BU:GU
NEW Maui Sunshine Strawberry Guava Ale
Description: A clean blonde ale with a mild bitterness that was refermented on large amounts of Pink Guava and Strawberry. Loads of guava and strawberry aroma and flavor, with a mild sweetness, and a very mild tartness on the finish.
Name: Beertender Marley (who is from Maui) said the smell reminded her of the Road to Hana, so we needed a Maui reference.
Malt: Pilsner, 2-Row, Brumalt, Malted Oats
Other: Pink Guava & Strawberry
Deets: 5.7% ABV, 18 IBU, 3.5 SRM, 0.48 BU:GU
NEW Yo Yo Man Helles Lager
Description: A Munich Helles-style lager – clean, malty, and pale gold in color. It has a soft mouthfeel with a grainy-sweet flavor that finishes dry with the perfect level of bitterness to balance the sweet. Very mild floral and spicy hop aroma. Refreshing and very easy to drink.
Name: In honor of Tom the beertender who we hear is pretty handy with a yo-yo!
Malt: Pilsner (German and US)
Hops: Magnum, Tettnang, Perle
Deets: 5.2% ABV, 25 IBU, 3.1 SRM, 0.51 BU:GU
Cone of Shame Pale Ale
Description: A west coast style pale ale - clear, crisp, and hop forward with familiar flavors and aromas of pine, citrus, and tropical fruits. The hop notes are balanced by a rich and bready malt character and a crisp yet creamy mouthfeel. A modern yet classic and easy drinking pale ale!
Name: Every dog’s been there. Running into things around the house. Trying to scratch it off to no success…or maybe a little. It’s no fun, but it can be a little funny.
Malt: Floor-Malted Marris Otter & Golden Naked Oats
Hops: Centennial, Simcoe, & Idaho 7
Deets: 4.9% ABV, 39 IBU, 4.5 SRM, 0.66 BU:GU
The Intern Kolsch
Description: A traditional German-style Kolsch. Clean and crisp with a slightly sweet grain character, and a subtle spicy and fruity finish from the Perle hops and the traditional Kolsch yeast. Finishes clean and refreshing with a moderate bitterness for the perfect sunny day beer!
!Name: Shawn “The Intern” (employee #1) has been bugging us to make a Kolsch since we opened – so we named it after him. No big head for him though – he’ll always be an intern!
Malt: US and German Pilsner
Hops: Magnum & Perle
Deets: 5.5% ABV, 25 IBU, 2.7 SRM, 0.50 BU:GU
Veloce Italian Pilsner
Description: Is this like a Peroni? Nope! 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 Tettnanger, German Perle, Sterling
Deets: 5.7% ABV, 32 IBU, 3.3 SRM, 0.65 BU:GU
No. 26 Micro IPA
Description: Is this just a session IPA? Maybe, but session beers are too often associated with being thin and bland. Yuck! We used multiple brewing techniques and ingredients to ensure this IPA has the malt body and mouthfeel to support the hops and feel bigger than it’s ABV. We then chose hops that bring a ton of familiar citrus, tropical fruit, and stone fruit flavors and aromas. If you like IPAs, but wish they were more drinkable, then this beer was made just for you!
Name: No. 26 was a small but excellent MotoGP rider, just like this IPA! We also enjoyed a 3.6% ABV “Micro Stout” from Japan a while back, and liked the monicker.
Malt: Pilsner, 2-Row, Malted Oats, Vienna
Hops: Mandarina Bavaria, Simcoe, El Dorado
Deets: 4.5% ABV, 25 IBU, 2.5 SRM, 0.65 BU:GU
The Noisy Cricket IPA
Description: An east coast meets west coast IPA. Crisp and clean with a moderate bitterness, yet unfiltered, smooth, and bursting with hops! A light malt body and clean fermentation character support the substantial hop notes of tropical fruit, citrus, stone fruit, and pine.
Name: A reference to one of our favorite movies. Looks can be deceiving!
Malt: Pilsner, 2-Row, Malted Rye
Hops: Strata, Amarillo, Chinook
Deets: 7.0% ABV, 43 IBU, 3.4 SRM, 0.70 BU:GU
Haze Gaze Hazy IPA
Description: A medium bodied NE-style (or hazy) IPA. It has a soft and creamy mouthfeel with just enough bitterness to keep it from being too sweet. 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
Deets: 6.8% ABV, 26 IBU, 3.2 SRM, 0.41 BU:GU
Description: American-style amber ale with bread, toast, and caramel malt character. Washington hops provide citrus and earthy notes.
Name: Named after Ascari corner at the legendary Monza race circuit in Italy.
Malt: Pale, Vienna, Munich, Crystal 80 & 120, Chocolate Rye
Hops: Willamette & Loral
Deets: 5.6% ABV, 28 IBU, 11 SRM, 0.65 BU:GU
Rabbit Ear IPA
Description: Our “flagship” IPA – west coast(ish) style with a slight haze, a light to medium body, and a soft mouthfeel. The low to moderate bitterness accentuates the hop derived grapefruit and citrus flavors and aromas. Balanced and crushable.
Name: Named after a corner at Willow Springs Raceway. No rabbits were harmed in the making of this IPA!
Malt: Pilsner, White Wheat, Flaked Oats
Hops: Strata, Citra
Deets: 6.6% ABV, 43 IBU, 3.0 SRM, 0.73 BU:GU
Power Slide Oatmeal Stout
Description: An English-style oatmeal stout. No, stouts don’t have to be 6%+ ABV! Rich, bready, roasty, with a bit of chocolate and coffee. Smooth mouthfeel, yet crushable.
Name: Powerslides on motorcycles are great fun – until they aren’t!
Malt: Vienna, Melanoidin, Crystal 80, Roasted Barley, Chocolate, Flaked Oats,
Hops: Any smooth bittering hop
Deets: 5.3% ABV, 25 IBU, 37 SRM, 0.50 BU:GU
Hard Italian Sodas
Description: You don't like beer? That's OK we have you covered! We brew a neutral seltzer base in-house and then you choose any of our Torani flavored syrups to add. Easy!
Name: It's an Italian Soda, but with alcohol (no cream - we tried it and it was not good!)

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.
