We had a blast at our first festival - Yakima's Fresh Hop Ale Festival - last Saturday. Thanks to everyone who came out to try our beer and for the great support. The long lines all night were awesome - in fact, we were so surprised by your support that we ran out of beer an hour before the festival ended. (Sorry to those who didn't get a taste, but stay tuned for more opportunities to try Bale Breaker beer this fall before our grand opening this winter.)
Not only was the public support amazing, we were stoked to take home 3rd Place in the Fresh Hop Ale Brew-off with our Piled High Imperial Fresh Hop Ale. It was an honor to share the podium with our good friends at Fremont Brewing Company and Laughing Dog Brewing Company. Although Piled High has been retired for the season, keep an eye out for either Fremont or Laughing Dog's fresh hop beers. You won't be disappointed!
To top it all off, we just found out that we were also voted by you as the 2012 People's Choice Award winner... We honestly couldn't have imagined a better debut for Bale Breaker Brewing Company - thanks again for the great support!
