At Old Stump Brewing Co.™, the DNA of our distinctive beers draws heavily from Austrian, German and European traditions & standards. Then our Master Brewer, Harald, a native-born Austrian, folds in good old-fashion American innovation and more than a dash of pioneering spirit. The results are complex, eminently drinkable brews that reward the beer drinker with every sip.
Proudly Made with American Ingredients
Our ingredients are 100% American, sourced from the best farms nationwide, and locally whenever possible. We buy hops from Washington and Oregon, famous for their outstanding crops. Grains, malts and yeasts all come from fine US producers. For recipes using fruit, we use fruit purees with natural fruit from American growers. We never use artificial flavors.
Old Stump Brewing Co.™ Beer Styles
Here at Old Stump Brewing, we serve more than 20 fine beers and hard seltzers, most of which are always on tap, with a few here-and-gone offerings. Our brewers are constantly creating unique brews based on the season, availability of special ingredients or different brewing methods. These sell out fast, so sign up here to get on our “First Suds” notification list. We’ll let you know about our next special release.
Old Stump Ales & Lagers
These are lighter beers with lower IBU (International Bitterness Units) ratings and ABV% (Alcohol by Volume), making many an excellent session beer (having less than a 5% ABV). Known for a smooth taste and easy drinking with different foods or on their own, our Blonde Conniption and Torrey Pine Pilsner (2019 Bronze Medalist) represent this class admirably.
Lagers are a great platform for trying new ingredients and styles as the bite of the hops doesn’t overpower the subtle flavors of fruit, herbs and special yeasts. Show Me UR Melons and Muffin Top are two excellent examples. Pale ales and lagers pair well with nearly any dish, making them versatile beers to drink with a meal.
Ales are a milder, maltier option offering hints of toffee and caramel. Ales are also darker and where you’ll find your brown and red brews. Easy to drink by themselves, they pair well with bar-b-qued and grilled foods, enhancing the char and caramelization of the dishes. Our legendary Nut Job Brown (2019 Bronze Medalist) and Rusty Gasket Red Ales are must-tries on your next visit.
Middle of the Road Beers
Old Stump IPAs
IPAs are frequently hop-heavy and have the IBU ratings to prove it. If you like hops, you’ll love IPAs. While the hops flavors and aromas are the stars of the IPA lineup, like our Summer and Mosey Cat IPA taps, they can support other flavors, especially citrus like our Thank God It’s Shady Citra. These gems pair well with heartier dishes.
You’ll also see Double IPAs (or DIPAs) on our list. Like the Imperial tag often associated with Stouts, the double designation means the ABV runs at 7.5% and above. Our Pineapple Coast Haze IPA and Double D’s DIPA will make any IPA fan sip for joy.
Old Stump Dark Beers
Dark Beers and IPAs share one thing in common, people either love them or they just don’t know them yet. That’s the beauty of craft breweries like ours; there’s something for everyone. And for those who love the dark brew, we have you covered with our P-Town Porter (2018 Silver Medalist) and our No Tan Lines Coconut Milk Stout.
Wait, did we say milk stout? Does the stout contain milk? No, the recipe calls for milk lactose. Still, if you are lactose intolerant, please choose a different brew. If in doubt, ask us.
Dark Beers pair well with hearty fare like shepherd’s pie or stews and are perfect by themselves.
Old Stump Sour Beers
For this unique breed, the word “sour” can be misleading. These masterpieces of the brewer’s art can be sour but are pleasantly tart. Our Master Brewer Harald says, “You need two sips of a sour before you can honestly decide if it’s for you. The first sip alerts your palette to expect something different. The second sip brings out the flavors of the beer, revealing its true character.”
Sour Beers excel at delivering fruit, floral and herbal flavors. Being lighter, they pair nicely with lighter fare that complements their flavors and aromas. Salads and quiches are excellent matches. Our Raspberry Lemonade Gose’ (2021 Gold Medalist) and Gose’ O’ Keeffe will not disappoint!
Old Stump Hard Seltzers
Hard Seltzers are the ideal option for the people in your group who are not beer connoisseurs or who are looking for a drink that is lower in calories than beer. We believe they bridge the gap between beer and wine nicely and boast rich fruit, citrus and berry flavors and aromas. We only use natural fruit purees in our Seltzers to deliver distinctive flavor. Our brewers love experimenting with ingredients like prickly pear to provide something deliciously different.
Like Pale Ales, Seltzers pair well with lighter fare, especially dishes featuring fruits and berries. Give our Blood Orange and White Peach Hard Seltzers a test taste. You too, beer drinkers! Treat your taste buds to something new.
