Beer: EHOP Collaboration
Brewer: Harpoon Brewery / Deschutes Brewery
Source: 22 oz. bottle
Rating: *** (7.5 of 10)
Comments: Boston’s Harpoon collaborates with Oregon’s Deschutes on a beer celebrating that both breweries are employee-owned. They celebrate their Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) with this Employee Hops Ownership Plan (EHOP). And the workers controlling the means of production is a treat for us all! The beer pours out a copper color with a thick head. The scent is caramel with a malty sweet flavor with hints of spice. A good solid beer and addition Harpoon’s 100 Barrel Series (which means it’s a limited edition, so try it soon).
