Bale Breaker to Add Classic German-Style Pilsner to Can Lineup

YAKIMA, Wash. – Bale Breaker Brewing Company, a family-owned brewery located in the beautiful Yakima Valley, today announces the release of its first canned pilsner to their year-round lineup.

Simply named “Bale Breaker Pilsner”, this crisp, classic recipe carefully balances malt and hops with notes of breakfast cereal, floral, and citrus. Brewed with local Simcoe®, Loral™, and Palisade® hops grown on the brewery’s family farm in the Yakima Valley, this hyperlocal pilsner brings additional citrus and berry fruit notes and less floral character compared to traditional pilsners brewed with European noble hops.

“After receiving such rave reviews from our Palm Spring Pils collab with Modern Times Brewery last spring and a few solid draft-only pilsner releases since then, we knew the demand was there to release a year-round crisp and refreshing pilsner,” said Bale Breaker Business Manager and Co-Owner Meghann Quinn. “We believe this will be a big hit for our fans who are looking for something a little less hoppy.”

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, Bale Breaker will be releasing the newly minted 12oz. cans for the public to enjoy via a no-contact drive-thru style in mid-August. Available year-round in select grocers throughout our entire distribution footprint in Washington, Northern Idaho, and Oregon in late-August.
