Bale Breaker Brewing hops on the hazy train


It seems like only yesterday that beer enthusiasts debated over the longevity of the haze craze, wondering how long it would take for the hazy hysteria to die down, but now it is a simple fact that hazy IPAs are here to stay. They do not stand in competition with other types of IPAs. There’s no reason to pick one style over the other. There’s room in our hearts for all manner of IPA.

Bale Breaker Brewing just announced the introduction of a new year-round addition to its beer lineup: Hazy L IPA. This marks the brewery’s first year-round hazy IPA.

Bale Breaker Debuts First Year-Round Hazy IPA

Yakima Valley Brewery adds sixth 12oz. can to its annual lineup

Yakima, Wash. – January 29, 2020 – Bale Breaker Brewing Company, a family-owned brewery located in the beautiful Yakima Valley, today announces that it will be adding a sixth 12oz can to its annual lineup named Hazy L IPA.

Hazy L IPA first debuted draft only in December 2019 and has received a great response from the market since its release. This innovative take on the hazy IPA style features Citra®, Sabro™ and Mosaic® hops grown by BT Loftus Ranches. With an approachable bitterness and a crisp body, this hazy IPA was thoughtfully crafted for everyday drinking.

“After refining our hazy game for a year with over 30 recipes in our Imagination Station, we finally settled on this hazy IPA recipe as the newest addition to our year-round lineup,” said Bale Breaker brewmaster Kevin Smith. “It’s a nod to the ripe East Coast hazies with our own fun West Coast spin – which is why we decided to name it Hazy L, another nod to some of the greats that came before us: our great-grandparents’ B.T. and Leota Mae Loftus’ cattle brand ‘Lazy L.’”

To help unpackage this new release, Bale Breaker will be hosting a taproom party on Friday, January 31 from 12-9pm for fans to buy the first cans of Hazy L IPA straight from the source. Cans will begin hitting shelves throughout WA, OR, and ID in early-February, with some of the larger grocers – including Fred Meyer, QFC, and Safeway – adding it to stores later this spring.
