Stoup Brewing announced its contribution to a nationwide collaborative beer project – Native Land Hazy IPA.

There are dozens of breweries in Seattle. There are hundreds of breweries in Washington state. Very, very few of the beers produced at those breweries acknowledge that they are brewed on the ancestral homelands of Native people. On the beer’s label, Native Land Hazy IPA from Stoup Brewing acknowledges that it was brewed on the ancestral lands of the Duwamish people. Proceeds from the beer support the Duwamish Tribe.

Aslan Brewing of Bellingham released its Native Land beer in December.

This new beer from Stoup Brewing is part of the Native Land beer campaign, a collaborative beer project initiated and guided by Bow and Arrow Brewing of Albuquerque, New Mexico. The project’s goal is to acknowledge the contributions and history of Native American people in the United States. Bow and Arrow Brewing is the first brewery in the U.S. owned by Native American women.

Stoup Brewing created its Native Land Hazy IPA on the ancestral lands of the Duwamish people. Proceeds from the beer benefit the Duwamish Tribe to support the Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center.

“We love making great-tasting beer, but supporting a collaborative effort such as this is what it’s really all about,” said Stoup Brewing in a statement introducing the beer.

The objective of the Native Land beer campaign is to further the visibility of Native people and to generate resources to support Native organizations and strengthen Native communities. In particular, to support Native organizations’ works focusing on ecological stewardship.

“As the first Native Woman-owned brewery, we’ve been thinking about how we can make an impact and leverage our platform to make a difference,” says a statement from Bow and Arrow Brewing. “The Native Land campaign was announced on Indigenous Peoples’ Day 2021.”

“We’ve developed the Native Land IPA recipe and label for a beer collaboration with other breweries across the country, with releases beginning in November 2021 during Native American Heritage Month and a window to participate over several months, through the end of March 2022.”

As for the beer itself, Stoup Brewing describes its Native Land Hazy IPA like this: “The beer consists of some great tasting hops… Citra, El Dorado, and Strata for a juicy, citrus and pineapple profile. Delicious!”

Across the nation, about 50 breweries in 24 states pledged their support for the Native Lands project. Some breweries in the Pacific Northwest were among them, including Ruse Brewing of Portland (released in December), The Alchemist of Bend (Released in December), Aslan Brewing of Bellingham (released in December), and now Stoup Brewing.
