Leading up to its 5th anniversary in October, Ecliptic Brewing will be celebrating as it is set to release five very special collaboration beers. These beers will be the focal point of the 2019 Cosmic Collaboration Series, aptly named 5 Beers for 5 Years.
Using his lifelong connections in the brewing universe, John Harris, Ecliptic Brewing’s Owner and Brewmaster, enlisted some well-known and highly regarded brewers to celebrate his brewery’s fifth year around the sun.
“I’m very excited to celebrate five years in business by creating beers with Brooklyn Brewery, Firestone Walker, Breakside Brewery, Bell’s Brewery, and Russian River Brewing Company,” said Harris in a statement. “The collaborations will celebrate old and new brewing styles and will be available in 500ml bottles and draft.”
The 5 Beers for 5 Years series will kick off the first weekend of February. After a Saturday evening prelude at The Upper Lip on February 2nd, Ecliptic Brewing and Brooklyn Brewery will officially release its collaboration beer, Tangerine Farmhouse Ale at its Cosmic Brunch on February 3rd. The Sunday beer brunch will take place at Ecliptic Brewing and will feature both Harris and Brooklyn Brewery’s Brewmaster Garrett Oliver in attendance. Attendees will enjoy five courses from Ecliptic Brewing Chef Michael Molitor with pairings from each of the breweries and signed bottles of the collaboration to take home.

First Course: Michelada with Octopus, Shrimp, Cauliflower Escabeche
