Collaborations are all the rage these days. I recently told you about the Samuel Adams Brewing The American Dream Collaboration Pack and this year’s 3-Way IPA from Fort George Brewing (plus Great Notion Brewing and Reuben’s Brews) has been flying off shelves so fast that it’s been a bit difficult to find this year.
Now, Bale Breaker Brewing Company is ready to get in on the action. They’ve partnered with Georgetown Brewing, Founders Brewing, Cloudburst Brewing and Pinthouse Pizza & Brewpub to create the Harvest Series Collaboration Series. The beers have staggered release date from August through October.
Here is the full press release from Bale Breaker Brewing Company:
(YAKIMA, WA) Brewers from across the country are planning trips to the hop fields of the Yakima Valley for our upcoming harvest, making it the perfect time to brew with some of our industry friends.
For the Harvest Collaboration Series, we will be releasing four different beers brewed in collaboration with four different breweries, with release dates from late-August through early-October. All collaborations will be draft-only. Look for them throughout our distribution footprint in Washington State and Northern Idaho.

ABOUT BALE BREAKER BREWING CO.
Bale Breaker Brewing Company makes handcrafted ales that showcase the world-class hops grown in the heart the Yakima Valley. Hops are in the family’s DNA: the great-grandparents of sibling-owners Meghann Quinn, Kevin Smith, and Patrick Smith first planted hops in the Yakima Valley in 1932, the year before Prohibition ended. Over four generations, their love of hops has evolved into a passion for craft beer. Today, Meghann, Kevin and Patrick are in the midst of running an independent production brewery surrounded by their family’s hop fields, just down the road from where they were born and raised.
Mark the dates on your calendar now and be on the lookout for each release, starting with Frenz IPA on August 19th and concluding with the yet to be named Pinthouse Pizza & Brewpub collaboration wet hop beer on 10/9.
Drink responsibly and stay safe out there.
