ABOUT BALE BREAKER BREWING CO.
Bale Breaker Brewing Company focuses on 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.

"Drake's Brewing Special Tapping & Meet the Maker!" at Belmont Station

"Drake's Brewing Special Tapping & Meet the Maker!" at Belmont Station

Meet the Barrel Program Manager forDrake’s Brewing, Travis Camacho, who is in town for the Holiday Ale Festival. Each year, Travis works with HAF director Preston Weesner to create their collaborative Vin Drakonic Grape Fermented Imperial Stout.

Here’s what Travis has to say about this very special beer:

“Every year for the Holiday Ale Fest in Portland, Oregon, we create a beer that will be sure to stun the fest goers at what is one of the best Beer Fests in the Pac NW. 

"We’ve taken our Drakonic Imperial Stout and fermented it on Grenache grape skins with our house blend of wild yeast and bacteria to turn our malty monster into a completely new creature. Initial fermentation was in a stainless tank, and was then transferred into Zinfandel as well as Petit Syrah barrels, and left to condition for 8 months. 

"The final blend is a blend of strong raspberry/grape fruitiness with a pleasant dark chocolate and tobacco-like malt profile. The beer also gained a pleasant tartness from wild fermentation; the final product walks the line somewhere in between a glass of wine, Imperial Stout, and Flemish Red." 

We’re lucky enough to get one of those kegs, plus we will be putting their Brut IPA and Denogginizer DIPA on tap too!

"An Introduction to Garden Path" at Belmont Station

We are excited to help introduce Garden Path Fermentation to Oregon.

We will be pouring four beverages in the Biercafe, and we will have a small selection of bottles in the bottle shop to go.

Here's a little on they’re all about in their words:

"Garden Path Fermentation’s co-creators, Ron Extract and Amber Watts, have a long history in the brewing industry. Most recently, they were at Jester King Brewery in Austin, TX, where Ron was an owner and managing partner, and Amber helped manage the tasting room and front office. While it was inspiring to be part of the team that helped Jester King grow into a world-class farmhouse brewery, Ron and Amber were ready to start their own project from the ground up.

Garden Path Fermentation is a brewery/winery/cidery/meadery in beautiful Skagit County in the far northwest corner of Washington State. We focus on the slow fermentation of local products—Skagit grains, honey, and fruit, and Northwest hops—all of which are fermented in oak with our native yeast culture cultivated from the air, flowers, and fruits of the Skagit Valley."

Draft list will include:

  • The Garden Paths Led to Flowered

  • The Subtle Blend Raspberry Barrels

  • The Dry Hopped Streams Well

  • The Curious Mix Methods

Bottle offerings will include:

  • The Curious Mix Methods

  • The Dry Table Mead

  • The Garden Path Led to Flowered


Ron and Amber will be here to take you on a guided tour of their fermented products.

The guided tasting is open to anyone. Simply purchase a flight at the bar in the Biercafe and join us on the back patio. Tasting will start around 5:30 in our covered and heated back patio. Ron and Amber will walk you down the path, sharing stories of inspiration and talk a bit about the beverages themselves.

C-sons Greetings Imperial IPA: A deep copper colored ale brewed and dry-hopped with all seven "C" hops for a piney, citrusy, floral and resinous aroma. C-sons Greetings offers a full hop flavor with a rich caramel malt finish and an endless developing hop presence. 8% ABV

2016 Old Tavern Rat: A dark amber colored barley wine that was aged for two years prior to its release, this barley wine features a strong bitterness that is balanced with the sweetness of caramel and toffee flavors. 9.4% ABV

2016 Rye Barrel Aged Belsnickel: Whether you’ve been impish or admirable, a visit from Belsnickel is a critical part of Christmas. This robust American porter was aged in Heaven Hill Distillery rye whiskey barrels for two years. Hints of oak, chocolate, tobacco, and roasted malts permeate the palate. 6.2% ABV

2017 Franc'ly Brewdolph: This Belgian-style red ale was aged in Maryhill Winery Cabernet Franc barrels for 11 months. It has an oaky aroma with a mild fruitiness, finishing with a spicy clove flavor. Sure to go down in history. 7.7% ABV

Seattle FC Pub Crawl with Fremont, Silver City, & Georgetown

Press Releas

Silver City Brewery, Georgetown Brewing, and Fremont Brewing are ecstatic to announce partnership on this year's Seattle Sounders-focused pub crawl event to be held on Saturday, September 1st. Celebrating Seattle sports and the local pub culture, the event will see hundreds of thirsty Seattle soccer fans coming together in Pioneer Square over local craft beer at a variety of beloved establishments, culminating with participants attending the Sporting Kansas City at Sounders FC match en masse at CenturyLink Field, 1PM PT.

Inspired by the overwhelming popularity of Silver City Brewery’s annual Mariners Pub Crawl, which in 2018 had nearly 600 attendees and 14 participating pubs, one of the most frequent points of feedback was a desire for a similar, Sounders-focused event. In October of 2017, the first annual "Seattle FC Pub Crawl" was held with a host of several local breweries. The event was a blast, so we've decided to do it again-- this year with our friends at Georgetown Brewing and Fremont Brewing.


Tickets to the Seattle Soccer Pub Crawl go on sale July 6th at 4:00pm for $45/each. Price includes a ticket to the match as well as an exclusive t-shirt commemorating the pub crawl, with all three participating brands represented. When purchasing, attendees will choose their “home brewery” where they will have the option to check-in early and pick up their swag in the days leading up to the event.

An option will also be available for season ticket holders that excludes the game ticket but provides the commemorative shirt and pub passport. These are available for $25.

The pub crawl will commence at 11:00am on Saturday, September 1st. If participants have not already checked-in, they will be able to pick up their game tickets and t-shirts at a designated location to be announced. From there, attendees will be able to visit over a dozen locations throughout Pioneer Square, all featuring beverages by Georgetown, Fremont, and Silver City Brewery. A pub passport will be provided that lists the participating pubs, as well as a map of which brands are being poured at each location. Attendees are encouraged to partake responsibly and choose a “top few” locations to visit. Visiting every single location is not mandatory, nor encouraged.

Release Night Matchless' "Sleeveless in Seattle IPA" at Brouwer's Cafe

6:00 PM18:00

Release Night Matchless' "Sleeveless in Seattle IPA" at Brouwer's Cafe

What if some beer you never met; some beer you never saw; some beer you never knew; was the only beer for you?

We think we might have a match(less) for you. The crew at Bottleworks and Brouwer’s will be heading down to Tumwater to brew a nice, juicy IPA that’s as easy to enjoy on your houseboat on Lake Union as it is in your garage in the south sound.

We’ll be having a special can release of our and Matchless’ collabro-ation IPA – Sleeveless in Seattle at Bottleworks on August 30th. We’ll be hosting Matchless at Brouwer’s starting at 6pm, where you’ll be able to try SiS on draft along with some other, fine Matchless brews.

As per our recommendation, Sleeveless in Seattle tastes best cold, in the Summer, while wearing a shirt without sleeves; or, warm, in the winter, while wearing a shirt without sleeves; or, lightly chilled, in the Fall, while wearing a shirt without sleeves… all right, drink it how you want except you just don’t need those constricting shirt sleeves while enjoying this beer… they just get in the way of those partially tanned guns, anyhow.

Tentative Draftlist:

Sleeveless in Seattle

Regal Lager Version 2

Camo Hat Pale Ale

Shared Table Saison

Blueberry Sour

Cherry Sour

Sunshine Day Dreaming DIPA
