In the Tualatin Valley, there’s more than one way to get “all hopped up” (#allhoppedup in social media speak). Hillsboro’s thriving beer scene inspired the name and mascot of the city’s beloved Single-A, minor league baseball team, the Hillsboro Hops. So, now “hopped up” is somewhat synonymous with “batter up!”
For added convenience, baseball lovers can even take public transportation to Hillsboro’s Orenco Station where a lux shuttle will be waiting to chart you to the stadium—free of charge beyond a showing of your valid MAX or bus ticket.
Before or after the game, make time for even more good vibes with a visit to one of the nearby breweries. There’s a good chance you’ll run into more than just a few other baseball fans partaking in some extra hoppy festivities. Here are a few awesome choices to try:
With a month left of home games, there are still plenty of chances to book a beer and baseball lovin’ getaway to the Tualatin Valley, especially with so many great hotel options nearby.
