Fresh Hop Release Party with Bale Breaker, Thurs. Oct 8th, 5-7p

on Fri, 10/02/2015 - 03:44

Few new breweries that opened within the last three years have made a splash and built a rabid fanbase like Moxie, Washington’s Bale Breaker Brewing Co. Built on the instant fame of their hoppy beers like Top Cutter IPA, this upstart is already establishing themselves as a primetime player in the craft beer scene.

Built right in the middle of a hop farm and owned in part by hop farmers, it is no surprise that they know how to brew hoppy beers, especially fresh hop brews. So we are throwing a party for the South Sound release of Bal Breaker’s very fresh and very rare Fresh Hop IPA. Join us
