Your Daily Pint for Saturday, Sept. 20, 2014 is: HOP VALLEY 541
What it is: a 5%-ABV German-style pilsner.
What it tastes like: Sweet grainy malts lead the swallow, carrying light hints of grassy, earthy hops; prickly carbonation cleans up the swift, sweet sip.
What to pair it with: We like to match crisp pilsners with hearty meals, like these delicious, drool-worthy poutines.
Crushable? Indeed. Pack these easy-drinking cans into your cooler for tailgating season, and don’t forget these other sessionable canned beers.
A trip to Oregon: If you’re headed to the Beaver State, make sure to swing by the brewery’s tasting room in Eugene. Then, head a few hours east to check out beautiful Bend, Ore., one of our favorite beer cities in the country.
