Really? Only 5 years? For some reason, it seems to me like Bale Breaker Brewing Company has been around longer than that. I’m used to seeing their Field 41 Pale Ale and Topcutter IPA everywhere, not to mention some their other releases like Leota Mae IPA, Sesiones Del Migrante Mango IPA and, of course, their popular Fresh Off The Farm IPA, which was the official beer of Seattle Beer Week #9 in 2017.
Well, whether I believe it or not, Bale Breaker is preparing to celebrate their 5th Anniversary this month, with a special re-release of Fresh Off The Farm IPA on April 13-15 at their newly expanded taproom.
Here is the full press release from Bale Breaker Brewing Company:
Yakima, Washington – Bale Breaker is releasing Fresh off the Farm IPA in cans and kegs throughout Washington on April 13 to celebrate its fifth anniversary.
Fresh off the Farm IPA debuted at the 2017 Seattle Beer Week. “This beer had a lot of fans, and we knew we wanted to find the right opportunity to brew it again. Fresh off the Farm IPA celebrates our brewery’s location in the middle of hop field 41, so the brewery’s fifth anniversary is the perfect occasion,” said Kevin Quinn, co-owner.
Bale Beaker’s 5th Anniversary Celebration will take place April 13-15 at the recently expanded Taproom in Yakima. Fresh off the Farm IPA will be available in six-packs and on tap, and guests are invited to dress to impress in Bale Breaker gear. Chronic Foods will be on site April 13 and April 14.
Bale Breaker opened in 2013, backed by four generations of hop farming experience. The Brewery has grown to become the fifth largest independent craft brewery in Washington. With a 30-barrel brewhouse at a 27,000 square foot facility, Bale Breaker crafts four year-round canned beers, including the widely celebrated Topcutter IPA, and a diverse offering of seasonal beers in kegs. The recently expanded onsite taproom hosts frequent food trucks and events, with a beautiful outdoor patio and lawn area, perfect for enjoying the Yakima sunshine.
About Fresh off the Farm IPA
Fresh off the Farm IPA (7.0% ABV 60 IBU) was brewed in the center of hop field 41, just minutes from downtown Yakima, by Bale Breaker Brewing Company. A big hop aroma on a clean Pilsner malt base perfectly showcases a few of the newest and most exciting hop varieties off their family’s hop farm. Whirlpool additions of Loral™ and Mosaic® add depth to the nose generated from a post-fermentation charge of Mosaic® and the experimental HBC 630.
If you can make it out to Yakima to help Bale Breaker celebrate, that’s great. If you can’t though, don’t worry. As noted above, Fresh Off The Farm IPA will be available in cans and kegs throughout Washington on April 13. So you shouldn’t have much trouble finding some. Have a pint or grab a can and let’s all wish Bale Breaker a very happy 5th.
Drink responsibly and stay safe out there.
