2023-08-01 14.11.05

We’re thrilled to announce that 2023’s new kids on the block, Daybreak Pale Ale and Skyward IPA, both won medals at this year’s Washington Beer Awards. We never release a new beer lightly – these beers are tested over and over again by our brewing team, our production team, our quality team, and the rest of the gang to make sure they’re not just up to the Bale Breaker standard you know and love, but are also pushing our beer lineup forward. But you never do know how they’re going to go over – so for both of these new releases to win awards at this year’s WA Beer Awards felt like a lovely confirmation that we did something right. Read on to learn more about these beers, and be sure to use our beer finder to find them near you!
