Bale Breaker Sets to Release Raging Ditch Dry-Hopped Blonde

Bale Breaker Brewing Company, a family-owned brewery located in the beautiful Yakima Valley, is excited to announce their newest 16oz limited release can: Raging Ditch Dry-Hopped Blonde, a taproom standard and fan-favorite, will be canned for the first time this summer.

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 their very first 10-gallon brewhouse at their 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 their decade of business. Taproom regulars have been asking for Raging Ditch to be canned for years, and the brewery decided to give it a go for their 10th anniversary year.

“Raging Ditch is the perfect summer beer – it’s got more hop flavor and malt complexity than the average blonde ale,” says Bale Breaker co-owner and Brewmaster Kevin Smith. “We highly recommend grabbing a 4pk and enjoying this beer on a body of water– we’d just suggest the Yakima River as opposed to an irrigation ditch.”

About Raging Ditch: 5.2% ABV 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. Low bitterness and balanced malt complexity. Orange, blueberry, and mango aromas.

Raging Ditch will be releasing on June 30, 2023, at both their Yakima and Seattle taprooms, as well as receiving larger distribution throughout Washington, Oregon, and Idaho beginning in early July.

Washington customers can also order the beer to be shipped directly to them from Bale Breaker via their online store after launch.
