Peaks and Pints stocks Bale Breaker fancy beers

We can’t wait for the Peaks & Pints’ Fancy Pants Sunday column to announce we stocked the Bale Breaker fancy beers housed in 750ml bottles.

Lionheart Graf Ale

9.4% ABV | 25 IBU

Brewed in collaboration with Bauman’s Cider Company, a fifth-generation, family-owned farm and cidery in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, using 20% juice from their estate apples. This unique beer-cider hybrid inspired by hot mulled cider was aged in Jameson whiskey barrels for 6 months before bottle conditioning. Complex aromas of whiskey, apples, caramel, and pumpkin pie spice.

Vielle Blanc Vinoveza Ale

8.8% ABV | 15 IBU

Vinoveza is a new style of beer fermented with wine grape juice exclusively made during crush. This Belgian-style saison was fermented with freshly-pressed Viognier and Roussanne grape juice then aged with Brettanomyces wild yeast in Yakima Valley white wine barrels for 10 months before bottle conditioning. Crisp and slightly tart with floral, apricot, and pear aromas.

Vielle Rouge Vinoveza Ale

10.6% ABV | 20 IBU

Vinoveza is a new style of beer fermented with wine grape juice exclusively made during crush. In the Yakima Valley, 40% of the state’s wine grapes grow alongside hops and tree fruit. This Belgian-style saison was brewed and fermented with Malbec grapes from Elephant Mountain Vineyard and then aged with Brettanomyces wild yeast in Yakima Valley red wine barrels for 9 months before bottle conditioning. Aromas of cherry, raspberry, dates, and fig with noticeable red wine tannin.

Romantique Saison Ale

7.7% ABV | 25 IBU

Aged in Yakima Valley red wine barrels with Brettanomyces wild yeast before bottle conditioning, this Belgian-style saison has aromas of bright tart fruit (cherry, grapefruit, apricot) with a silky mouthfeel, low bitterness and sourness, and hints of oak.

Exquis Belgian Blonde Ale

8.3% ABV | 22 IBU

In French, exquis means “delicious” or “exquisite.” Aged in Yakima Valley wine barrels with Brettanomyces claussenii wild yeast before bottle conditioning. Crisp lemon-like acidity with aromas of champagne, grapefruit, pineapple, and gosberry. ⁠

Wood & Wire Imperial Stout

10.3% ABV | 71 IBU

Not for the faint of heart: coffee, dark chocolate, smoke, bourbon, and vanilla with a full body. Utilizes 10 different malt varieties for complexity, then balances the beast with Simcoe, Palisade, and Ahtanum hops. Took home bronze twice at the WA Beer Awards. | Aged 3 months in Jameson Whiskey Barrels⁠

Incoherency Golden Stout

8.3% ABV | 32 IBU

First released through the Imagination Station in 2017, the reprise of this mind-altering golden stout made with vanilla beans, cacao nibs, and Basalt Roasters’ coffee proves that looks can be deceiving. Brewed as part of Bale Breaker’s Caskmates collaboration with Jameson.
