Behind-the-scenes of Hop Valley Hefe bottling in Eugene, Oregon
The sweet, bitter, biting smell of Hefe beer moving through the line can a bit distracting to the casual observer. The orderly chaos of a highly advanced bottling process is as mesmerizing as it is interesting. Not all beer comes in kegs or cans. Sometimes there’s just no substitute for a tall boy bottle. This Hefe runs smooth and cloudy. Some like it with lime. Just pour it right. See how to do it from Hop Valley’s Brandon Ross.
