Hoppy to Give Back
There are few things we find more enjoyable and more rewarding than brewing extraordinary craft beer. One of those things, though, is using our passion to give back to great causes and organizations here in Oregon and throughout the Hop Valley universe.
Hops that Help is our way of using wonderful, delicious, amazing craft beer to give back to those in need. Sometimes it’s for people and sometimes it’s for pets, but it’s always for a good cause and always makes us feel warm and fuzzy inside. And that’s not just the beer talking!
Just over the past year, our unbelievably community-minded and generous patrons have helped raise thousands of dollars for worthy causes while enjoying some great Hop Valley brews.
One Hop Closer to a Cure
- Light Me Up Pink every Wednesday at both Hop Valley pub locations now through September 10th.
- Hop-to-Hop 10k walk/run Saturday, September 10th.
One Hop Closer to a Cure serves to unite several separate undertakings under the Hops that Help umbrella that support the Eugene/Springfield Chapter of the American Cancer Society.
For those who enjoy Hop Valley’s seasonal Hefe American Wheat beer, be proud that you’re helping raise crucial funds for cancer support and research.
Our annual Hop-to-Hop fundraiser, now in its fourth year, encourages participants to raise funds and awareness as they walk or run the 10k distance between Hop Valley’s locations in Springfield and Eugene. This year’s event will start Saturday, September 10th at 10am at Hop Valley’s Springfield location. For individual and group registration, prize information and details, visit www.hopvalleyhoptohop.org.
And leading up to Hop-to-Hop is Hop Valley’s Light Me Up Pink promotion, where patrons can enjoy a delicious pink Light Me Up Lager every Wednesday at either pub location now until September 10th with $1 of every pint supporting the American Cancer Society. Come out and get some pink in your drink and help donate some green!
Hops for Hounds
- Luvable Dog Rescue fundraiser and adoption event at the Eugene Tasting Room Tuesday, September 19th from 4-7pm.
Dogs hold a special place at Hop Valley. We share our lives with them, we love them and we smile every time we see them enjoying themselves on our Tasting Room patio. So it just made doggone good sense to come up with a Hops for Hounds fundraiser series.
Over the past few years, we’ve teamed up with Luvable Dog Rescue based in Eugene to help raise funds for their important work in rehabilitating and rehoming all kinds of canines. Luvable is also world-famous for sheltering the dogs in their care not just in run-of-the-mill doghouses but in unique, downsized cottages.
Hops for Hounds and Luvable Dog Rescue will be back at the Tasting Room in Eugene on Tuesday, September 19th from 4-7pm for a fundraising and adoption event. Come out and wag your tail in support and help some wonderful pooches find their forever homes!
Reveal Pale Ale, released by Hop Valley in June of 2017, celebrates the true colors in all of us.
Brewed in collaboration with LGBTQ bar owners and community leaders from Seattle, San Francisco, Portland and Eugene, proceeds from every drop of Reveal beer support LGBTQ non-profits, including Pride Foundation and the Queens of the Castro. Donated funds support scholarships, outreach, education and equality for all.
The Science Factory
Every kid in our hometown of Eugene knows about the Science Factory. Dedicated to engaging children and encouraging their curiosity toward a lifelong love of learning and science, the Science Factory serves kids and their families with exhibits, programs and the community’s only planetarium.
As brewers, science is something close to our heart (not to mention astronomy – Alpha Centauri, anyone?) so it made perfect sense to host an event donating $1 of every pint sold to help get kids excited about the wonders of our world.
A lack of affordable housing is an issue that affects almost every region and community in our country. Here in Eugene and Springfield, SquareOne Villages is a non-profit organization addressing the issue in a very creative way.
By paving the way for self-managed communities of cost-effective tiny homes, SquareOne Villages provides an effective bridge for people to transition from homelessness to stable housing. Hop Valley was thrilled to host an event donating $1 of every pint sold to Opportunity Village, SquareOne’s pilot project.
For all of those who’ve helped make Hops that Help such an amazing success, thank you! And if you haven’t yet had a chance to drink some great beer and help some great causes, now’s the perfect time to get involved with Light Me Up Pink Wednesdays, Hop-to-Hop and the upcoming Hops for Hounds Luvable Dog Rescue adoption event.
