Happy 4th of July weekend! Yesterday, we had the privilege of leading this year’s Ashland, Oregon 4th of July parade through downtown. Standing Stone Brewing Company co-owners, Alex and Danielle Amarotico, were chosen as the 2014 Grand Marshals, and many of us cycled along behind their beautiful, classic car on our Standing Stone commuter bikes.
Here is what the Ashland Chamber of Commerce had to say about their choice for this year’s Grand Marshal:
The Grand Marshal epitomizes this year’s theme, ‘This Land is Our Land’, to the fullest extent. We’d like to congratulate, Alex and Danielle Amarotico and the Standing Stone Brewing Company as this year’s Grand Marshal. Personifying the stewardship of our land, Alex, Danielle and Standing Stone are being recognized for their leadership with their sustainable business practices, investing in solar, their Farm and true ‘farm to table’ offerings at their restaurant and brewery. Recently honored at one of the Top 100 Green Businesses to work for in Oregon, Standing Stone gives back to the community and its employees by offering one of the first employee bike programs in Ashland. Congratulations and we shall see you at the Parade!
We had a great time circling our decorated bikes around the parade route, and we’re honored by this generous recognition. Thank you to the Ashland Chamber of Commerce and all the parade volunteers who make this event a once-yearly great success!
In the spirit of continued celebration, come toast a pint of American craft beer at Standing Stone this weekend. We hope you had a fun and festive Independence Day yesterday, and wish you a safe, joyful and responsible weekend to follow!
