If you are looking for an unpretentious place that offers some amazing beers in the Yakima area then Bale Breaker Brewing Company is your best bet. The brewery features an amazing “tasting room”, which is modern and comfortable, and where you can enjoy your beers in a relaxed manner. There are a couple TVs that usually have sports on them (great for sports lovers). Even though the staff is minimum, they do a great job of keeping up with bar customers and people picking up 6-packs and cases of their tasty canned beers. They always ensure that every customer is having a great time, and treat everyone like family, which is probably why this place is so popular!
Bale Breaker serves no food but has big tables for you to bring your own. You can also have your favorite pizzas delivered from local eateries here, which is great. Otherwise, there are often foodtrucks parked outside from which you can buy your food pairings. If you are unsure then you can ask the staff for suggestions. They will help you find the perfect food vendor.
Surrounded on three sides by a field of Cascade hops in the heart of the nation’s hop country, Bale Breaker Brewing Company has emerged as one of the Pacific Northwest’s premier craft breweries. They have a variety of delicious beers for everyone. Some of the best offerings from the brewery are as follows-
- Field 41 Pale Ale- Heavily dry-hopped with Simcoe and Ahtanum, this perfectly sessionable Pale Ale drinks easy with a smooth bitterness and is named for the hop field that is home to Bale Breaker Brewing Company. Light and refreshing, it’s the perfect beer for a day on the river or afternoon on the slopes.
- Topcutter IPA- This flagship IPA is a well-balanced yet aggressive West Coast IPA that showcases Yakima Valley hops at their finest. Late additions of Simcoe, Citra, Ahtanum, and Mosaic give this beer its complex citrus, fruity, and floral aroma and flavor.
- Dormancy Imperial Stout- Boasting notes of freshly-brewed espresso and rich chocolate, Dormancy Imperial Stout is conditioned on locally-roasted coffee beans from Yakima’s Lincoln Avenue Coffee Co
All and all Bale Breaker Brewing Company has plenty of interesting elements that should warrant a visit from each and every craft beer lover. At any rate, their beer selection is enough to impress you and turn you into a regular!
