Next up in the Reno Ice Adult League concept is Hop Valley from B-League. Hop Valley, like Blue Moon, Coors Banquet, Coors Light and Miller Lite, is one of the teams made up of free agents that was sponsored by Revision Brewery. For this concept Hop Valley play in the Nevada division of B-League.
Hop Valley Primary Logo
The logos, and branding of Hop Valley are the same as the beer. Just like any of the other Revision Brewery teams. Out of all of the Nevada division teams this was my favorite to do. Their primary logo is a black and green shield with Hop Valley Brewing Co. in the shield. The O in Hop Valley is a hop with a line going through it to make it look like a valley. Hop Valley is also in a different font than Brewing Co.
Hop Valley Alternate Logos
The first four alternate logos are recolors of the primary logo. The next four are wordmark variations of the primary logo. The next three are just the hops logo. The next four are Stash Exotic logos. Stash Exotic is a beer from Hop Valley. The logos will be used on one of the jerseys. The next three logos are Aceball Ale logos. The Aceball Ale is another beer that Hop Valley makes.
The last two logos are unofficial Hop Valley logos. Hop Valley wasn’t around until 2009. For this concept these are retro logos made by the hockey team to be used on their retro jersey. They would not see use by Hop Valley Brewing Co. The situation with these logos is a lot like the Vegas Golden Knights Reverse Retro situation. Vegas didn’t have old jerseys, so they made new designs to look old. That would be the same with Hop Valley since Hop Valley Brewing Co. dose not have any logos that predate 2009.
Hop ValleyThrowback Logos
Hop Valley was founded in 2009. These are the logos plus additional colorations of original Hop Valley logos. For this concept the hockey team and Hop Valley Brewing Co. would have introduced these logos in 2009. They would have seen use from 2009 to 2012. In 2012 both the hockey team and Hop Valley Brewing Co. would have switched to the current logos. The first logo seen above would have been the primary logo.
Hop Valley Jerseys
The Dark jersey is green and white. There are two stripes on the sleeves and one on the bottom. The only logo used on this jersey is the hop alternative logo in white.
The Light jersey is white and green with the same pattern as the Dark jersey. The white jersey has the primary logo on the front. It also has the alternate hop logo on the shoulders in black.
The 3rd jersey is blue and pink. This jerseys nickname is the Stash Exotic jersey. The pattern is inspired by the Toronto Maple Leafs jerseys from 1970. Where the stripes would be on the sleeves and bottom of the jersey is zebra print in pink. On the front is the alternate hop logo in chetah pattern with a black outline. On the shoulders is the Stash Exotic wordmark logo in white. This jersey is inspired by the Stash Exotic beer. This beer came about because of Tiger King. As a result, some of the proceeds of the beer and merchandise under the Stash Exotic name go to animal rescue in Oregon (where Hop Valley Brewing Co. is from). The Stash Exotic can was a big inspiration for this jersey.
The City jersey is blue, red and white. The nickname for this jersey is the Aceball Ale jersey. Hop Valley makes a beer in collaboration with the Reno Aces. The beer is called the Aceball Ale. The Reno Aces are the local AAA baseball team here in Reno. On the front of the jersey is the Hop Valley logo used on the Aceball Ale. On the shoulders is the Aceball Ale wordmark logo.
The Retro jersey is green, black and white. It is inspired by the 2001 team Canada jerseys. The logo on the front is the Hop Valley retro alternative logo. Hop Valley did run into the problem of not having any branding from before 2009. For this concept they got around that problem by creating new throwback inspired logos just for their retro jersey.
The Surge jersey is white and green. It is inspired by the Canadian hockey jerseys from 1972. The only pattern on the jersey is the alternate hop logo on the front and sleeves in green.
