In addition to 2019 Orange Giant Barleywine on tap. Ecliptic will also be serving a rare keg of Ecliptic + Belmont Station Barleywine.
“Our house barleywine, Orange Giant, is an American one. American barleywines have more hop bitterness and aroma. English versions bring up a bit more caramel and malty flavors,” said John Harris, Ecliptic Brewing’s Owner/Brewmaster, in a prepared statement. “This barleywine was brewed to celebrate the 19th anniversary of Belmont Station. Belmont Station is a star visible to the naked eye here on Earth, near the Cassiopeia and Lacerta constellations. Belmont Station also is a star in the craft beer galaxy and has been Portland’s premier beer destination since it first opened in 1997. All of this beer was laid into barrels for aging, except this one keg. This is the only un-barreled aged keg in existence! Come try this four-year-old, aged-in-keg, English-inspired Barleywine.”
