Portland beer lovers rejoyce (sic): Hop Valley Brewing Company’s popular products will finally be available throughout the metro area.
“We’ve self-distributed on a limited basis within the Portland area for a few years,” says Hop Valley co-owner Jonas Kungys. “We’re excited that our new brewing facility will increase our capacity enough to fully serve the market.”
Hop Valley has entered into new distribution agreements with Portland-based Maletis Beverage and Morgan Distributing for distribution over 10 counties in the greater Portland metro area.
This evening from 5-8pm Hop Valley will host a special event at Belmont Station. Located at 4500 SE Stark, Belmont Station features more than 1,200 beers, now including Hop Valley. A firkin of dry hopped Alpha Centauri and other beers from Hop Valley’s portfolio will be available for sampling.
Hop Valley Brewmaster, Trevor Howard, will be at the event. Trevor has received over 40 brewing awards from seven international competitions since 2004.
Founded in 2009, Hop Valley brews over a dozen distinctive Northwest beers. The company owns and operates a brewery and restaurant in Springfield along I-5. To meet increased customer demand, Hop Valley is currently rennovating a building in Eugene’s historic Whiteaker neighborhood a few blocks from Ninkasi and Oakshire. The facility will house Hop Valley’s new 60-bbl brew system and a 2,000 square foot tasting room.
