Both brewery’s are employee owned, and celebrate that aspect of their business. Deschutes EHOP is an amber ale, brewed with sage and thyme, and employee-grown hops.
“It has been quite a year for us at Harpoon as we’ve transitioned to employee ownership,” says Harpoon CEO and co-founder Dan Kenary. “It’s a complicated process and we couldn’t have done it without the support that we received from Deschutes and other craft brewers who had chosen this path before us. We’re extremely proud to be employee-owned – being an independent brewer is something we value deeply and believe it’s at the core of what makes the craft beer industry so great for both brewers and beer lovers. This beer is a high-five to our fellow independent American craft breweries and their employee-owners.”
Deschutes EHOP will debut at the Great American Beer Festival at an invite only party. The general public will see this beer in October on draft and 22 ounce bottles.

Stone Brewing Co. (Escondido, CA) has been hinting at the release of a new beer a little different then their usual hop aggressive, or “arrogant” ales. By the looks of it, that beer will be Stone Saison.
Stone also owns a farm that grows various herbs and spices for their restaurant – Stone World Bistro & Gardens. Just like the restaurant, this farm-to-table saison is brewed with home grown lemon zest, lemon thyme, and lavender.
In spring 2011, Stone bought the farm, literally, taking over 19 acres of fertile Southern California soil where we now grow pristine fruits, vegetables, herbs and more for our Stone Brewing World Bistro &. Gardens restaurants. A taste of our homespun farm-to-tableism is provided in this farmhouse ale stoked with lemon zest, plus lemon thyme and lavender straight from Stone Farms. This spring-to-summer saison is citric and herbal on the palate with a dry, peppery finish. Thanks to the infusion of fresh West Coast ingredients, this isn’t your everyday saison. It’s our saison-100% Stone. Celebrate the sunny season with an authentic taste of our farm and, with it, our commitment to quality.
Look for Stone Saison in 12oz bottles and draft.
