Bale Breaker Brewing has earned a place in the hearts of IPA lovers. The brewery is not at all shy about creating hop-forward beers, especially of the West Coast and Northwest IPA varieties. As the world of IPA became hazier and hazier in recent years, Bale Breaker proceeded with caution and focused on doing it right. This Saturday the company releases a staff-favorite, the first hazy IPA in the Clarity Rarity series–a series of staff-favorite brews. Dang me! Those are some pretty can!
The beer will be available this Saturday at the brewery where they’ll operate a drive-thru style beer pick up operation. It will also be more widely available at “select independent grocers and bottleshops” across the region. Here is the info from the brewery, including a link to the Bale Breaker beer finder.
Bale Breaker Promotes Staff-Favorite Hazy IPA Recipes into New Series
Yakima Valley Brewery releases hazy IPA series to 16oz. can lineup
Yakima, Wash. – March 31, 2019 – Bale Breaker Brewing Company, a family-owned brewery located in the beautiful Yakima Valley, today announces its release of the first hazy IPA from the Clarity Rarity series, a line of staff-favorite small batch hazy IPAs that graduated from the Imagination Station.
Originally known as a taproom-exclusive release called “Irieshun,” Release No. 1 is a clarity rarity with complex hoppy aromas: mandarin orange, pineapple, mango, herbal. The announcement serves as the brewery’s answer to continue to prove there’s ‘no one way to IPA’ and to saturate fans’ thirst for more hazy brews on the west coast.
“This release truly is dedicated to our fans – specifically to the locals who come out and support every single taproom release party we throw to test out our latest Imagination Station brews,” said Kevin Smith, BBBC co-owner and brewmaster. “It’s every brewmaster’s dream to have his/her recipe be well-received, so making what was formerly known as ‘Irieshun’ into a Bale Breaker staple is really just a celebration of our community’s support for creativity and uniqueness.”
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, Bale Breaker will be releasing the colorful 16oz. cans for the public to enjoy via a no-contact drive-thru style on Saturday, April 4 from 12-6pm along with new, equally colorful tie-dye Bale Breaker t-shirts. Swing through the brewery parking lot to be one of the first to bring home this highly coveted hazy IPA and rep the newest brewery tee. Available in select independent grocers and bottleshops in Washington, Northern Idaho, and Oregon in late-April.
