Bale Breaker & Yonder Cider Taproom

If you’re brewery-hopping in Ballard and your priority is a standout patio, the one at Bale Breaker is the winner, complete with an expansive gravel-coated space, funky murals, and firepits. And since it doubles as a tasting room for Yonder Cider, you’ll have more gluten-free options on tap than you would find at other breweries—from hard apple juice brewed with pineapple and cardamom to spiked strawberry lemonade slushies. While the beer is good (we’re fans of their hazy selections), you’re really here for Yonder’s fruit-based stuff and the great outdoor space.
