Bale Breaker releases ‘Desert Bite IPA’

Bale Breaker Brewing Company, the family-owned hop farming brewery in Yakima, Washington has released Desert Bite IPA. As the third and final release of their three-part IPA Rotator Series that each represents a unique characteristic of life in Yakima’s hop country.

More from a press release:

Made with the elements in mind, Desert Bite IPA is intended for those who take on the outdoors no matter the season. With a variety of five hops: Simcoe, Cascade, Mosaic, Loral, and Ahtanum and an ABV of 7.1% it’s appropriate this fruity and clear-bodied IPA was saved for last.

“It’s exciting to see our first IPA Rotator Series come to a close with this third and final release,” said Bale Breaker co-owner, Meghann Quinn.  “While I sincerely thought Hop Country was the best beer we had ever brewed, I didn’t miss it as much as I thought I would when I started drinking Golden Grit this fall.  And now, I couldn’t be more excited for Desert Bite to help get me through the last few months of winter!”

Bale Breaker will be celebrating the end of the first-ever IPA rotator series with a release party on Friday, January 17 in the taproom. There, craft beverage and outdoors enthusiasts alike can taste Desert Bite for the first time and bring home a 6-pack of the newly minted 12oz. cans and commemorative glassware.
