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

Pint Defiance Goes to Hop School

on Mon, 09/17/2012 - 01:22

Hi everyone, R.J. here. You may not have seen me around Pint Defiance this last week and that is because I've gone back to school. Specifically Hopunion's annual Hop & Brew School. This is the 10th year they've put this on but my first opportunity to attend. I've dabbled in homebrewing over the past two years and wanted to learn more about that magical ingredient that goes into the beer that we all love, especially the NW-style ales we cherish here at Pint Defiance.

A little background on Hopunion: Hopunion, LLC is the largest supplier of hops to the craft and homebrewing industries.
