Introducing our newest limited release: Raging Ditch Dry-Hopped Blonde Ale.
Raging Ditch Dry-Hopped Blonde Ale is named for the irrigation ditches that flow throughout the Yakima Valley’s rich farmland. The original recipe for Raging Ditch was written and brewed in 2012 for a family wedding on our very first 10-gallon brewhouse at the family hop farm, Loftus Ranches, before the brewery had even officially opened. It debuted for the first time to the public in 2013 during the brewery’s first summer, and has been a taproom summer mainstay in our decade of business. Taproom regulars have been asking for Raging Ditch to be canned for years, and so we decided to give it a go for our 10th anniversary year. In typical Bale Breaker fashion, Raging Ditch is a more hop-forward approach to the classic Blonde Ale style, to showcase the brewery’s homegrown hops.
