A few years back, the Washington Beer Blog partnered up with Adam Robbings (Reuben’s Brews) and Nat Pellman (Brouwer’s Cafe) to organize the Washington Hop Mob Roadshow, a series of events focused on Washington-brewed triple IPAs. Since 2014, dozens of breweries have participated, including Bale Breaker Brewing.
Now, we share the news that Bale Breaker is releasing Mount Saint Humulus Triple IPA later this month — limited availability. I should note, the Hop Mob judging panel awarded this beer its top honor at the 2020 official tasting event, which happened in February 2020, just before you know what. That’s the last time we were able to really host a big Hop Mob tasting event. Stupid covid!
Find out more about the beer and how you can get it in the official release announcement below.
Bale Breaker Introduces New 16oz 4pks: Mount Saint Humulus Triple IPA
Yakima Valley Brewery announces a new limited 16oz. can release: Mount Saint Humulus Triple IPA
Yakima, Wash. – May 7, 2021 – Bale Breaker Brewing Company, a family-owned brewery located in Yakima Valley, today announces the upcoming launch of their newest limited release 16oz can: Mount Saint Humulus, a longtime fan-favorite triple IPA and winner of the Washington Hop Mob in 2020.
Originally brewed in 2015 as part of the Washington Hop Mob, Mount Saint Humulus Triple IPA has become a spring-time staple for the Yakima Valley brewery, and for the first time this year will be put in cans to be enjoyed at home – the ideal setting for this robust beer.
“Mount Saint Humulus is the first Triple IPA we brewed, and we’ve spent the last few years refining the recipe to make sure it hits with an explosion of hop aromas in each sip,” says Bale Breaker Co-owner & Brewmaster Kevin Smith. “With a 10% ABV and 80 IBU rating, this year’s batch smells like a fresh bag of the finest Yakima Valley hops: citrus, tropical, blueberry, apricot, floral & grassy aromas with smooth bitterness.”
This new release will be available at Bale Breaker’s Yakima, WA taproom starting on May 12th. Customers can pick up Mount Saint Humulus Triple IPA 16oz 4pks to-go, or grab a glass on draft for in-person, limited seating. Mount Saint Humulus Triple IPA 16oz 4pks will be getting limited distribution in mid-May throughout Washington, Oregon, and Idaho at select bottleshops and stores.
