Over in the Yakima Valley, where most of America’s hops are grown, Field 41 is blanketed in snow, snoozing fallow through the winter, storing its energy patiently for the upcoming planting and growing seasons. Field 41, the hop field in which Bale Breaker Brewing is located, lies dormant, but at the brewery they’ve been busy.
Today, January 3rd, Bale Breaker Brewing released Dormancy Breakfast Stout. This year’s batch features Costa Rican coffee beans roasted by Yakima’s Lincoln Avenue Coffee Company. Also, they added more oats to the grain bill this year.
Here’s the release notice.
DORMANCY BREAKFAST STOUT STATEWIDE RELEASE – TUESDAY JANUARY 3
Resolve to drink more dark beer! We recommend Bale Breaker Brewing Company’s Dormancy Breakfast Stout, available throughout Washington State starting January 3. Look for Dormancy on tap where Bale Breaker is served.
This year’s batch of Dormancy Breakfast Stout incorporates even more oats with the malt, plus an intense coffee presence, thanks to Coast Rica beans roasted by Yakima’s Lincoln Avenue Coffee Co. As winter settles in to the Pacific Northwest and the hop fields surrounding our brewery lay dormant, this beer was crafted to remind us that good things can still happen in the off-season for hops. 6.8% ABV. 50 IBU.
