Bale Breaker Brewing just announced plans to collaborate with four different breweries this hop harvest season.

“Brewers from across the country are planning trips to the hop fields of Yakima Valley for our upcoming harvest,” says Jessica Hawkins, Bale Breaker’s marketing manager. “It’s the perfect time to brew with some of our industry friends.”

The Harvest Collaboration Series will feature four collaboration beers with Georgetown Brewing, Founders Brewing, Cloudburst Brewing, and Pinthouse Pizza & Brewpub. Release dates will be from late August through early October. All collaboration beers will be draft only and available at select locations in Washington and northern Idaho.

ABOUT BALE BREAKER BREWING CO.
Bale Breaker Brewing Company makes handcrafted ales that showcase the world-class hops grown in the heart the Yakima Valley. Hops are in the family’s DNA: the great-grandparents of sibling-owners Meghann Quinn, Kevin Smith, and Patrick Smith first planted hops in the Yakima Valley in 1932, the year before Prohibition ended. Over four generations, their love of hops has evolved into a passion for craft beer. Today, Meghann, Kevin and Patrick are in the midst of running an independent production brewery surrounded by their family’s hop fields, just down the road from where they were born and raised.
