And we at Hop Valley are proud to use their hops in our beers. That’s the way it has been since we opened the doors to our original brewery on Springfield’s hop-hallowed grounds Friday, February 13, 2009.
Friday the 13th, we know, right? Perfect day to start a business. But if we have accomplished nothing else at Hop Valley, we have at least demonstrated that even the worst timing can’t doom the best ideas.
Of course, we’ve accomplished more that. For starters, we won a couple World Beer Cup medals shortly after opening. Plus, we’ve expanded from our original Springfield brewery to a state-of-the-art production facility in Eugene. Our brewing capacity has grown from 1,000 barrels in year one to 4,000 barrels in 2012 to 12,000 today. Well not today, but this year. Come on, you knew what we meant.
