Bale Breaker Brewing Company
Meet Our Washington Brewery Partner
For the second year running, Jameson Caskmates Irish Whiskey and Bale Breaker Brewing Company are collaborating to bring barrel-aged beers to Washington's neighborhoods. Using whiskey barrels shipped from the Jameson distillery in Midleton, Ireland, Bale Breaker Brewing Company has created a series of limited edition brews you won’t want to miss.
Jameson has an incredible history, with its roots in family business. As a family business ourselves, we feel the same pride in our story that Jameson does, and accessing legendary whiskey barrels has been so much fun to match with our beer.
The Yakima Valley is a beautiful place—200 days of sunshine, access to mountains and rivers, and of course, incredible farmland to grow 75% of America’s hops.Thanks to our proximity to the hop fields, we are able to select the best hops for our beers. We built Bale Breaker in the middle of one of our family’s hop fields in 2013. Our dad always said that when you grow up on a hop farm, hops are in your DNA. And we think that’s true. The Yakima Valley is our home, and has been for four generations. We hope the fifth generation feels as strong of a connection to Yakima as we do.
