Crafting fresh-off-the-farm brews from the middle of a hop field, Bale Breaker Brewing Company is a family-owned brewery located in the beautiful Yakima Valley. Backed by four generations of hop farming experience, Bale Breaker started in 2013, and has grown to become the third largest independent craft brewery in Washington, with distribution in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho.  At our 30-barrel brewhouse in a 27,000 square foot facility in Yakima, we craft six year-round canned beers, including the widely celebrated Topcutter IPA. We also have a 5-barrel pilot brewhouse, the Imagination Station, where we test and develop new recipes. Our new taproom in Ballard will be a great extension of what we’ve been doing for 8 years and allow us to share the Bale Breaker experience with new and current fans in Western WA.
