Bale Breaker Debuts First Year-Round Hazy IPA
Yakima Valley Brewery adds sixth 12oz. can to its annual lineup
Yakima, Wash. – January 29, 2020 – Bale Breaker Brewing Company, a family-owned brewery located in the beautiful Yakima Valley, today announces that it will be adding a sixth 12oz can to its annual lineup named Hazy L IPA.
Hazy L IPA first debuted draft only in December 2019 and has received a great response from the market since its release. This innovative take on the hazy IPA style features Citra®, Sabro™ and Mosaic® hops grown by BT Loftus Ranches. With an approachable bitterness and a crisp body, this hazy IPA was thoughtfully crafted for everyday drinking.
“After refining our hazy game for a year with over 30 recipes in our Imagination Station, we finally settled on this hazy IPA recipe as the newest addition to our year-round lineup,” said Bale Breaker brewmaster Kevin Smith. “It’s a nod to the ripe East Coast hazies with our own fun West Coast spin – which is why we decided to name it Hazy L, another nod to some of the greats that came before us: our great-grandparents’ B.T. and Leota Mae Loftus’ cattle brand ‘Lazy L.’”
To help unpackage this new release, Bale Breaker will be hosting a taproom party on Friday, January 31 from 12-9pm for fans to buy the first cans of Hazy L IPA straight from the source. Cans will begin hitting shelves throughout WA, OR, and ID in early-February, with some of the larger grocers – including Fred Meyer, QFC, and Safeway – adding it to stores later this spring.
