Hop & Barrel announced its expansion via social media this past weekend upon securing the downtown Spring Valley location, on the corner of Broadway and East Jefferson St., formerly home to Sheldon Plumbing and Heating. “We like to say that Hop and Barrel is a community center that sells beer,” say co-founders Justin Terbeest and Brian Priefer. “Hop & Barrel Spring Valley will have its own unique character,” adds Terbeest, “but the underlying theme will be a community center with beer.” To learn more about Hop & Barrel Brewing Company, visit hopandbarrelbrewing.com and make sure to follow the progress on Facebook at @hopandbarrelspringvalleymn.
