Raging Ditch, a longtime taproom favorite, finally makes it into cans

Bale Breaker Brewing, located amidst the hop fields in the fertile Yakima Valley, just announced that it is releasing Raging Ditch Dry-Hopped Blonde in cans. This limited release marks the first time the beer–a taproom standard and fan-favorite–finds its way into cans as part of the company’s ongoing celebration of its 10th anniversary. Four packs of the 16-ounce cans will make their way across Bale Breaker’s distribution footprint. Raging Ditch Dry-Hopped Blonde Ale hits the streets at the end of June. Expect to start seeing it at retailers in early July.

The beer is named for the irrigation ditches that flow throughout the Yakima Valley providing water to the hop fields and other crops. The original recipe for Raging Ditch was written and brewed in 2012 for a family wedding on Bale Breaker’s very first 10-gallon brewhouse at their family hop farm, Loftus Ranches, before the brewery had even officially opened. The recipe was scaled up for the big system when the brewery opened in 2013.

In typical Bale Breaker fashion, Raging Ditch is a more hop-forward approach to the classic Blonde Ale style, formulated to showcase the brewery’s homegrown hops. Clocking in at 5.2 percent ABV, expect low bitterness and balanced malt complexity along with aromas of orange, blueberry, and mango.

Bale Breaker releases the beer on June 30th at both of its taprooms (Yakima and Seattle) and customers can expect to see it at retail outlets across Washington, Oregon, and Idaho starting in early July. Check out Bale Breaker’s online beer finder. Washington customers can also order the beer to be shipped directly to them from Bale Breaker via their online store after launch.

“Raging Ditch is the perfect summer beer – it’s got more hop flavor and malt complexity than the average blonde ale,” says Bale Breaker co-owner and Brewmaster Kevin Smith. “We highly recommend grabbing a 4pk and enjoying this beer on a body of water– we’d just suggest the Yakima River as opposed to an irrigation ditch.”
