New Official Beer Partners Announced

May 15, 2019 - Northwest League (NWL) - Hillsboro Hops News Release

llsboro, OR - The llsboro Hops (@llsboroHops) announced today that they have entered into partnerships with three award-winning breweries, who are all Oregon-based - Deschutes Brewery (@DeschutesBeer), Migration Brewing (@MigrationBrew) and Crux Fermentation Project (@CruxBrew).

Starting this season, the popular brews will be available at point of purchase locations throughout Ron Tonkin Field, during llsboro Hops home games. All three breweries will be on-site for Saturday's Hops Fan Fest at Ron Tonkin Field and will give fans 21-and-over an opportunity to taste their beers before the Hops season starts next month. Attendance, parking and hot dogs are FREE for Hops Fan Fest and the breweries will be sampling from 10:00am - 2:00pm.

The Hops and the new beer partners will work together to develop a Hops-themed specialty brew in the future.

The partnership also includes the three brands being featured throughout Ron Tokin Field via signage and logo placement, highlighted by a rebranded and refreshed "Deschutes Deck" space down the right field line behind Section 1.

"We are excited to partner with three Oregon-based, award-winning breweries to provide llsboro Hops fans with the best and highest quality beer selection of any team in baseball," said llsboro Hops President K.L. Wombacher. "Fans coming to Ron Tonkin Field for a Hops game, will see for themselves that the quality of the offerings from Deschutes Brewery, Migration Brewing and Crux Fermentation Project is second to none. Because of our name, we know that our beer partnerships are very important. We wanted to align with craft partners that take enormous pride in their product like we do in our fan experience and we think we've found the perfect match."

"Hops Baseball and Deschutes Brewery is a highly anticipated partnership that comes with the territory of the Pacific Northwest," said Deschutes Pacific Northwest General Manager Chris Hudson. "Deschutes Brewery is proud to be the official beer of the llsboro Hops. Play ball!"

"Migration Brewing is excited to announce this summer we will be partnering with the llsboro Hops for the 2019 season. What better way to enjoy a summer day then attend a baseball game while drinking a Hazy IPA in the sunshine," said Migration Brewing co-owner Eric Banzer-Lausber.

"Cam O'Connor, head brewer for Crux, played a little baseball in college and knows there's no better way to spend a summer afternoon than at the ballpark with a beer in hand. That's why he's excited about this partnership so folks can enjoy a cold Crux Pilz or Gimme Mo IPA this summer at one of the llsboro Hops games," said Jason Randles, Branding/Marketing Manager, Crux Fermentation Project.
