Their motto is “a beer for everyone” and the range of selection provides the delicious proof.

Oregon’s first commercial hop-growing operation was started in Buena Vista (Polk County) in 1867, but by 1880 most of the state’s hops were being grown in Springfield.

In addition to Springfield, hops were being grown in Santa Clara, Crow, Coburg and Goshen. (Legend has it this is where the phrase “a hopping place” originated, but it is our legend and thus is, more than likely, a complete fabrication.)
