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.

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 delivered to the taproom, and throughout the summer and on most weekends, local food vendors will often be onsite to serve food for purchase.  Check the Events Calendar for details on upcoming food vendors and our event schedule.

What about wine and booze?

According to Washington state law, alcoholic beverages other than beer and cider 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, not a huge beer person?  Next time you visit, ask to try a local favorite - Tieton Cider Works' Rambling Route!

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.
