Stoup Brewing: There it is!

Stoup: There it is!  This brewery was named cleverly with the owners loving both soup and stew.  Voila!

We made another stop along the Ballard Brewery circuit!  Stoup puts out some of the best beers, and is only fitting that their restroom is classy too.  Their brewery fits into one of the side streets of industrial Ballard, and has a very open brewery concept.  The tanks are there for your eye gazing, and the staff are helpful in getting you the beer you want!

The outside of the bathroom hides the beauty inside this industrial looking door.

The bathrooms are dominated with a 1960’s star which adds some great class!  Bonus points for the great lighting!

Concert posters and punk stickers fill one wall, while the others are neat and classic modern.

Bike tours to Ballard’s breweries are a new Seattle ritual. Handover your Seattle passport if you haven’t done at least one by now!  One of the best interiors of any of them is found at Hilliard’s Brewery.  They even went all the way with great bathrooms, which has made us very happy at Shits and Giggles!

Hilliard’s focussed the bathroom on their chevron branding and used classic bathroom sinks, toilets and fixtures.

The gold chevron does feel a bit Escher-esque after too many beers, but luckily for you, this is usually one of the last stops on your bike tour in Ballard.
