Bale Breaker launches in Oregon

We are launching northwest Oregon distribution this May through Maletis Beverage!

Since our founding in 2013, Bale Breaker has become one of the most popular breweries in Washington state. “Oregon craft beer drinkers have been asking for our fresh-off-the-farm beers, like Topcutter IPA and Field 41 Pale Ale, and we are excited to be able to make them available.” said Meghann Quinn, co-owner and president. 

Bale Breaker has seen tremendous growth over its first five years, exceeding 23,000 barrels in 2017. Thanks to recent fermenter additions, capacity is over 32,000 barrels. The past twelve months have brought a talented team together, including three full time QA staff, giving us the resources to expand its production of high-quality, hop-forward beers.

“Maletis Beverage is thrilled to bring fresh off the farm Bale Breaker beer from the Yakima Valley to the great State of Oregon,” noted Rob Maletis, owner of Maletis Beverage. “A fourth-generation hop-growing family partnering with a fourth-generation beer distributor makes this partnership extremely unique. Our entire team at Maletis Beverage is eager to bring the world-class portfolio of Bale Breaker beers to our retailer partners in Oregon.”

Kevin Quinn, Bale Breaker co-owner and sales manager, adds,  “Our strategy has always been to stay close to home, and Oregon allows us to do that. We know Maletis is a partner who shares our entrepreneurial spirit and values.”
