Hop Valley Brewing

Hop Valley Brewers

Hop Valley Brewery started when four lifelong Oregonians with knowledge of the local beer market and a better understanding of craft beer just wanted to make some good beer. The friends chose Lane County to start their brewery, which was once a hot place to grow hops. In fact, back in 1880, most of Oregon’s hops were growing in Springfield.


Never ones to shy away from bad luck, the friends opened the doors to their original brewery in Springfield on Friday, February 13, 2009. Since then, they have expanded to a state-of-the-art production facility in Eugene. The brewery has grown it’s brewing capacity significantly over the years – from 1,000 barrels/year in 2009 to 4,000 barrels/year in 2012 to 12,000 barrels/year today.

Their space in Springfield honors the past and shows their commitment to sustainable construction and business practices. Almost every piece of a local barn from the 1890’s was used in the tasting room and patio area, and all the furniture comes from re-purposed fir and steel.

Hop Brew

Hop Valley Brewery sources their hops from local hop growers, many of which are fourth-generation growers who take great pride in producing the world’s highest-quality hops. Hops growing is a long standing tradition in the region. While once primarily grown in Springfield, over the years the growing has transitioned to primarily Marion and Polk counties. 17% of the country’s hop supply comes from Oregon.
