Bale Breaker Top Cutter was so good when I was at hop school in Yakima.

Indeed.  Did you guys make it out to the taproom?

No, ran out of time. After Hop School we drove down to see friends in Bend. That was fun too.

I'll bet!  We headed out to the tap room last year ans it's gonna be an annual event!  Hope you can make it back.

Man, I've always wanted to live in the PNW. This does NOTHING to change my mind   :) .  Makes me want to track some down when I can vacation out that way.
Come to Hop School next September.  Better yet, skip Hop School and just hang out at Bale Breakers tap room.  The beer is great and the scenery is spectacular...and I wasn't looking out the windows.  8)

I wish I could send some to you all, but it is only sold by the keg.  I'll be at the brewery tomorrow drinking my share... and maybe a bit of yours too.

Show of hands: who here would turn down a keg of this beer?  ;D
I bet you could get a good shipping rate for a full truck load.  ;)

Man they weren't even selling growlers of it!  >:(  I was hoping to get a growler for the game tomorrow.  And on top of that they had a two beer limit on it.  Oh well, at 9.2% I had a decent buzz after two...

Just a heads up....Hop and Brew School dates this year are changing.  I think it will be later.

I wanted to go to Hop School last year but was recovering from hip surgery.  Hopefully this year!  I'm going to have to see if any distributors here in Spokane are carrying the Bale Breaker IPA, that is if they bottle it.  Thanks for the tip Steve!

Bale Breaker only cans beer.  The only ones they can now are their Field 41 Pale Ale, Top Cutter IPA, and Bottom Cutter IIPA.  They will only sell Mt St. Humulus by the keg or by the glass.  You should be able to get the three in cans in Spokane for sure.

Right-O!  I did check their website and saw that the MS Humulus is packaged only in 1/2 barrel and 1/6 barrel kegs.  I'll post on my area home brewers club FB page to see if I get any hits on any local establishments known to be serving it by the pint.  As you would imagine, their website also showed that lots of Spokane establishments serve Bale Breaker beer.
