Can-Do: Hop Valley Brewing's Alphadelic IPA

Alphadelic IPA is bitter with a citrus twist that can be found locally at Broken Top Bottle Shop & Ale Cafe.

Man, we just love this canned beer revolution. You can take 'em anywhere and they often taste better than their bottle brethren. The 90 IBU, 6.5 percent can of Alphadelic IPA that waltzed into our offices on a recent winter afternoon proved to be another Northwest winner. A delightfully bitter IPA, it did lack a certain citrus punch, but we were fine with that - fine enough with it that we cracked another after shipping out the week's paper. Never heard of Springfield's Hop Valley Brewing Co.? That's okay; they just celebrated their three-year anniversary party in mid-February. If you're in the valley, check them out. And to find their beers locally, go by Broken Top Bottle Shop & Ale Café where a sixer of cans is selling for $12 or you can grab a single can for $3.
