Summer has arrived and the hops are getting high in Field 41, the home of Bale Breaker Brewing. I was just there last weekend and the hops are about waist high. Did you know that hops can grow up to half a foot a day until they reach their optimal height of about 18 feet? I digress.
The weather is still a bit iffy over here on the wet side of the mountains, but summer has arrived in the Yakima Valley and the Bale Breaker Taproom is the perfect gathering spot for enjoying the Yakima sunshine. There will be a local food truck at the brewery’s taproom six days a week from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Add to that summer seasonal beers, like Raging Ditch Dry-Hopped Blonde and Lazy L India Pale Lager, and you’ve now got a reason to pay Bale Breaker a visit.
They’re particularly excited that this year they’ve partnered with Guerra’s Gourmet on Wednesday nights. Chef Chris Guerra will prepare a unique menu with ingredients carefully sourced from the Yakima Valley. These Fresh off the Farm Dinners will be a great mid-week reason to come out to Bale Breaker.
“Our beer is fresh off our hop farm, and Guerra’s food is fresh from the farms of the Yakima Valley. It’s the perfect partnership,” said Meghann Quinn, business manager at Bale Breaker. Bring the kids and the dogs and come see us!
