this place is downright awesome! i had only ever had one of their beers before rocking up, no expectations at all. they have a great selection of beers on too, tons of hoppy stuff, which is where we spent most of our time, but the list is more diverse than that, and i didnt have a single beer i didnt like, some of the best in the neighborhood, which in a lot of neighborhoods wouldnt be saying much, but i could hit a five iron to like seven other breweries from here, none of which are bad, so its a high compliment here. the space is rad, they have neat beer garden on the lower level, mellow and relaxed, a walk up bar space when you enter, the tanks in the back there, low brow vibe, but the real gem of it all is upstairs, especially the outside seating up there, a balcony that looks to the west over the whole neighborhood, stunning as the sun goes down, perfect place to drink beer. the inside up there is cool too, wooden and mellow, but if you can snag an outside seat its as good as it gets in terms of brewery ambiance if you catch it right! the beer was awesome, i loved a barbe rouge hop focused ipa, a vic secret one, and really everything we drank, no bad beers in here i gather. service was solid, company was killer, beer was lovely, scenery was righteous, highly recommended!

One of the bevy of breweries in the Ballard area. Only a few blocks from Reuben's. Lots of folks on a Wednesday afternoon. A great vibe throughout with a decent selection. Stoup is fairly new, but their beers are really good. We shared the Porter, the 4th Nail (Pine Box anniversary beer) and the Chuck's Woodshop Applewood Smoked Porter. All were stellar. Wish we'd had more time to stay. Our waitress was outstanding, explaining the different beers, then carefully wrapping our sample glasses we'd bought. Stoup is a fun, flavorful place. Worth the stop.

This place is one of many breweries and spots within walking distance of one another in Seattle. Dipped in with my dad and had a beer. The outdoor patio is nice and there's a spacious inside. Food truck was present.

Beers are pretty standard and unremarkable, so the biggest appeal is dropping in here along a crawl.

Friday before thanksgiving.
Place is packed
Nice place in Ballard, parking is ok, kid friendly.
There was a short line but it takes time to move.
Overall a good place to hang out.

Very cool brewery. Has a mix of young, old and hipster patrons. In other words, it's the typical Seattle brewery crowd. What counts are the beers though and Stoup has earned its reputation here for a reason. The beers are very high quality

Stoup is a typical taproom for an small brewer in an industrial setting. There's nothing fancy about the place, no decor to speak of, no TVs, just a good friendly place to drink beer. It's kid and dog friendly, and there were quite few kids in particular playing around just outside the taproom, while their parents imbibed. At 7 on a Friday evening, the place was jammed, with around a hundred people in their fairly small space. There's a nice outdoor patio, and a food truck as well. Prices are quite reasonable.

There were seven beers on tap, available in 5 ounce tasters, glasses, or pints. I had a couple of them, the Citra IPA and the Porter, and both demonstrated a lot of care and quality in their brewing. So I'm assuming the other beers match that level of quality, and on that basis, I'd give the place a 4.25 ... not for decor, but for the beer, which is what it's all about.

Visited Stoup today for the second time. I'm jealous of areas like Ballard where these kinds of places are walking distance to each other.

Stoup has a great industrial atmosphere; everything is clean, gleaming steel, wrought iron, smooth woods. The whole brewery operation is open to and visible from the tasting area, which has a giant double-garage door open to the neighborhood. Really a great space.

The staff (some of whom I think are also the owners) are ready to please. It's a great neighborhood brewery. The beers aren't anything crazy, style-wise, but are well-enough made and pretty drinkable. I could see spending a lot of time here if I lived closer to the area. Prices are pretty good -- everything on tap today is $5 a pint and $12 for a growler fill.

The brewery is one of the nicer Ballard ones. The beer is well made, but never really pushes the boundaries. The citra IPA is legit though and they need to start bottling that.
