Holy Hopjack! Hop Valley partners with Maletis Beverage.

Hop Valley Brewing Company of Eugene Oregon has entered into a distribution agreement with Maletis Beverage. The emerald city based craft brewer has just opened a new 25,000 square foot manufacturing plant, complete with bottling lines, canning lines, and a keg filling line. This state of the art brewing facility joins Ninkasi and Oakshire in the now famed brewing district of Eugene know as “The Whitaker Blocks”. This triumvirate of Eugene brewers is making quite a name for the brewing appellation—Eugene Oregon/Whitaker Blocks.

Hop Valley’s custom designed brewing system was built in Wilsonville Oregon by the top class fabricator, JV Northwest. A tour of the facility will quickly reveal that no expense was spared when it came to the manufacture of this brewers “kitchen”. The brewery was designed to accomaodate significant growth for years to come. Currently under construction is a Taproom and Restaurant indoor and outdoor seating—check the Hop Valley website for details on the opening.

The company will be keeping its original 15 barrel brewery and pub located on the eastside of Eugene. The original brewery will now serve as the R&D division of the brewery. Last but not least—the new brewery has the obligatory barrel aging room—these rooms are now an almost standard element of any new, 21st century brewery. Next time you are in Eugene, make it a point to visit them and the other world class brewers located in Eugene’s beer triangle!
