About Stoup Brewing:
Stoup Brewing is a long held dream of Brad Benson and Lara Zahaba  two hopeless drink and chow hounds.  That the two found each other twenty years ago seems fated  Brad, a scientist to the very last DNA strand, would proffer a hypothesis based on proximity and human nature, were sure (ahem). Whatever your take, the takeaway is this: Brad loves beer and has been a loyal student, courter, and crafter for years that number beyond his fingers and toes.  Lara loves all things gastro  from a savory plate to a smart pour. The pair, professionally and recreationally, have spent the better part of their hours improving their palates quality of life.  It was only a matter of time before they ponied up and joined the community of talented purveyors.

About Barley’s Angels, Seattle Chapter:
Barley’s Angels Seattle is part of a collection of independent chapters that span the globe. We were birthed out of the Pink Boots Society, a professional association for women in beer, and began to fly on our own May 2012. Our mission is to grow the sisterhood of women craft beer enthusiasts world wide and we intend to do that through education. To know beer is to love beer.

About Brewshed®

The Brewshed® Connection from source to pint explains the science behind how the quality of a protected water source impacts the quality of the final downstream beer.

  1. Intact forested ecosystems provide a natural filter that creates and maintains high quality water, at the headwaters and as that water flows downstream. Preserving elements like trees and mature vegetation along a river bank prevents erosion, sedimentation and other issues that affect water quality.
  2. As the river weaves its way through the landscape it absorbs natural minerals which add to the taste, body and head of the beer. As a result different geographic areas have distinct water compositions leading to unique regional flavors of beer.
  3. During its journey water also collects pollutants produced by human activities, such as chemical, industrial and agricultural runoff. These contaminants must be removed or treated by the brewer or the city to make the water safe for consumption.
  4. If treated by the city contaminated water requires increased amounts of disinfectants, which are very difficult for brewers to remove. Even in small amounts disinfectants can negatively impact the flavor of the final beer.
  5. Protecting the rivers that subsequently flow into the final glass of beer ultimately protects the beer quality and integrity. By protecting the source, we protect the final pint, because protected water makes superior beer.
