Bale Breaker Brewing Company - Visit the Taproom


In our taproom, fans of Bale Breaker can enjoy a pint while watching a game at the bar, or soak up the Yakima sunshine at a table on our patio.  Bring a blanket or lawn chair and post up next to the hop field, or challenge your friends to a game of corn hole on the brewery lawn.

Holiday Hours & Special Events

You Ask, We Answer.

Got growlers?

Yes, we fill growlers to-go.  Field 41 Pale Ale and Topcutter IPA are $15 for a new growler and $10 for a refill.  Seasonals and limited-release beers are typically $5 extra.  (Please note that growlers are for off-premise consumption only.)

What about cans?

Cans of Field 41 Pale Ale, Topcutter IPA, and Leota Mae IPA (12 oz) are available for purchase in our taproom for $10/six-pack. Bottomcutter cans are also available at $12/six-pack. (Please note that cans are not allowed to be consumed on-site at this time.)

How about kegs?

Yep, we sell kegs of our beer from the taproom in two sizes - 1/2-barrel (15.5 gallons) and 1/6-barrel (5.17 gallons) kegs.  Pricing is as follows:

For kegs of Field 41 Pale Ale, Topcutter IPA, and Leota Mae IPA

- 1/2 barrel keg = ~120 16oz pints = $190
- 1/6 barrel keg = ~40 16oz pints = $100 

For kegs of Bottomcutter Imperial IPA:

- 1/2 barrel keg = ~120 16oz pints = $205
- 1/6 barrel keg = ~40 16oz pints = $110

We collect a $100 keg deposit (cash only!) that is fully refundable when the empty keg is returned.  Party taps are also available ($50 refundable deposit, cash only!) on a first come, first serve basis.  We do not have the ability to fill empty kegs at this time.  

Please order 48 hours in advance by calling the taproom during business hours (509) 424-4000 or emailing info(at)

And food?

We can't prepare food onsite, but we encourage outside food to be brought in or pizza delivered to the taproom.  (See below for a couple nearby favorites.)  

Throughout the summer, local food vendors often come out to serve food for purchase on the brewery lawn.  Check the Events Calendar on our home page for details on upcoming food vendors and events.

What about wine and booze?

According to Washington state law, alcoholic beverages other than beer are not allowed to be consumed on our premises.  That means we can't serve it and customers can't bring in their own.  Sorry.

However, state laws recently changed, and we can now carry a limited amount of cider.  Not a huge beer person?  Next time you visit, ask to try a local favorite - Tieton Cider Works' Rambling Route!

Do you offer tours of the brewery? What about hop farm tours?

Our brewery tour schedule is currently in the works.  Subscribe to our newsletter below to stay up-to-date on the latest Bale Breaker happenings, including upcoming tours!

Also, we don’t offer hop farm tours at this time, but our brewery is surrounded on three sides by a hop field that taproom guests are welcome to wander through. Feel free to ask our knowledgeable staff any questions, or check out the Hops 101 page for all you need to know about this unique crop!

Whoops, I left my card there! What now?

Credit/debit cards left unclaimed at the end of the day will be charged for the products ordered/consumed by the cardholder, including up to 20% gratuity.

Please visit us at your convenience during taproom hours to pick up your card and receipt.  Any cards left unclaimed for one month will be destroyed by the brewery.

Where can I buy gear?

Bale Breaker merchandise is available for purchase in our taproom, and we also fulfill shipping orders via our web store!

Can my club/company/group hold a meeting/party/event there?

We are not currently offering the brewery for private events; however, groups are very welcome to come in during normal taproom hours.  While we don't reserve tables or a separate area, we have plenty of indoor and outdoor space for a fun, casual gathering. 

For larger groups (20+), please send us a Contact Us message with some information on when you'll be coming in so we can be sure we're staffed appropriately.  We will email you back to confirm and answer any questions you may have.

Can we park our RV overnight there?

Unfortunately, we do not offer overnight RV parking at the brewery, but Yakima Sportsman State Park is nearby!

Are kids and dogs welcome?

We don't discriminate, bring your kiddos and pooches.  We'll allow the kids inside but ask that dogs stay on leashes in the outdoor area.
