Some things just go together, like peanut butter and jelly, chicken and waffles, meat and cheese. The best pairing for us craft beer lovers, however, might just be the partnership between craft breweries and food trucks. It’s the perfect arrangement for breweries that don’t serve their own food, as well as for the food trucks. Brewery patrons don’t have to leave the brewery to go eat or worry about bringing their own food, and the food trucks get a steady supply of customers who need something to accompany those tasty craft beers they just ordered.
For some breweries, like Bale Breaker Brewing Company in Yakima, having food trucks is especially important because there aren’t a lot of food options right nearby. That’s why Bale Breaker has arranged to have food trucks at the brewery 6 days a week, all summer long through Labor Day.
Here is some more information from Bale Breaker Brewing Company:
Summer has arrived in the Yakima Valley, and the Bale Breaker Taproom is the perfect gathering place to enjoy fresh brews, fresh food, and that golden Yakima sunshine. There will be a local food truck at the brewery’s taproom six days a week from Memorial Day through Labor Day. And summer seasonal beers include Raging Ditch Dry-Hopped Blonde and Lazy L India Pale Lager.
Especially exciting this year is a partnership with Guerra’s Gourmet on Wednesday nights. Chef Chris Guerra will prepare a unique menu with ingredients carefully sourced from the Yakima Valley. These Fresh off the Farm Dinners will be a great mid-week reason to come out to Bale Breaker.
“Our beer is fresh off our hop farm, and Guerra’s food is fresh from the farms of the Yakima Valley. It’s the perfect partnership,” said Meghann Quinn, business manager at Bale Breaker. Bring the kids and the dogs and come see us!

Bale Breaker makes some pretty tasty beers, including their popular Topcutter IPA and Field 41 Pale Ale. They also, of course, brewed the official beer of Seattle Beer Week 2017: Fresh Off The Farm IPA. A visit out to the Yakima Valley makes a great Summer day trip and Bale Breaker and their food truck partners will be waiting to quench your thirst and fill your belly when you get there. Check the food truck schedule at the link above and plan your visit accordingly.
Drink responsibly and stay safe out there.
