We brought you the first version of this beer (a collaboration with Deschutes) and now I’m excited to show off the 2nd collaboration. This is EHOP 2016 and this beer is a collaboration between Harpoon and Odell Brewing. This Oatmeal Pale Ale will be the 59th release in the Harpoon 100-Barrel series and it is an “employee-owned” collaboration. Look for EHOP 2016 to hit 6.6%-AbV and 52 IBU and you’re looking at the 22oz bottle.
UPDATE 26 Sep 2016 from Odell:
Odell Brewing and Harpoon are proud to be among craft beer's ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan) breweries. This year, we've collaborated on the release of an EHOP Pale Ale in which both breweries will offer their take on the style. To help celebrate employee ownership, we'll be pouring beer from fellow employee owned breweries New Belgium, Deschutes, and Left Hand. All five breweries will have special beers available at the Odell taproom in Fort Collins from 4:00p-7:00p on 10/5. We invite you to join us for great beer among friends.
