EUGENE, Ore. – Beginning today, Hop Valley beer, “Everyone’s craft,”will be available on tap and in bottles and cans in the Entertainment Capital of the World and in Arizona’s two most-populous metropolitan areas. Following successful expansion into Washington, Idaho and California, Oregon’s Hop Valley Brewing Co. has announced plans to further expand distribution to include Las Vegas, Nevada and Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona.
“Bringing our products to Las Vegas, Phoenix and Tucson is a dream come true for everyone at Hop Valley,” says Chuck Hare, Hop Valley co-owner. “It’s been an incremental process to successfully serve so many people and we’re thrilled to bring Oregon’s best craft beer to a huge section of the American Southwest.”
Founded in 2009 in Springfield, Oregon, Hop Valley has grown into one of the most respected—and awarded—craft breweries in the Northwest. Their Citrus Mistress IPA and Blonde Ale both received bronze awards at the 2014 World Beer Cup®, besting hundreds of beers from dozens of countries. Hop Valley also brews a dozen flagship ales and lagers along with seasonal offerings.
Hop Valley is partnering with distributor Bonanza Beverage Company in Las Vegas and with Crescent Crown Distributing and Finley Distributing in Arizona and will have product available on tap at restaurants and bars and in both bottles and cans at local grocery stores, convenience markets and bottle shops.
“We’re rightfully proud of our beers and everything the Hop Valley brand stands for,” says Trevor Howard, Hop Valley co-owner and brewmaster. “Now being able to share that every day with craft beer lovers in Las Vegas and Arizona is extremely rewarding.”
Hop Valley will initially offer Citrus Mistress IPA, Alphadelic IPA, Alpha Centauri Imperial IPA, Light Me Lager, and Hop Valley Blonde in the new markets, along with a changing selection of seasonal beers.
