Portland, Oregon. Earth. (December 16, 2022)- Ecliptic Brewing, the company started by Oregon beer legend, John Harris, is excited to announce its 2023 beer release lineup. The brewery will be celebrating its tenth anniversary this year and is excited to showcase its new offerings.
Ecliptic Brewing’s current All the Time Series beers remain unchanged, apart from Capella Porter, which will change in package format. The beer will move from a 16-ounce can four-pack to a 12-ounce can six-pack.
Ecliptic’s Seasonal Series includes four rotations, with a new release – Parsec Grapefruit Hazy IPA – launching this January. The other three releases continue to rotate with the seasons, including fan-favorite Flamingo Planet Guava Blonde Ale, then Cloud Core Hazy Pale Ale, and finishing the year with Ice Giant Cold IPA, which was a new release for the company in 2022.
The Moon Room Series will also remain for 2023, featuring four different lager beers. The series celebrates Ecliptic’s recently-opened second loction in Southeast Portland. An Altbier and Italian-style Pilsner are two new styles releasing in the series. Other classic Special Release beers, such as Oort Imperial Stout and Orange Giant Barleywine, will also return, alongside some fresh concepts, including a “Super Phaser” Hazy IPA release, which will be a souped-up version of the company’s flagship hazy.
Additionally, Ecliptic’s popular Cosmic Collaboration Series will include seven collab beers next year, as the company plans to work with esteemed breweries such as Fort George Brewery, Boneyard Beer and Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.
New for 2023 is the introduction of the Outer Reaches Series. This project allows Ecliptic to play at the forefront of beer trends with rapidly released, one-off, small-batch beers. The labels will feature actual space imagery from various telescopes/NASA, offering a learning moment for its customers: exploring new beers alongside the outer reaches of space.
The Limited Release Series will continue to feature the companies’ fresh hop beers.
The brewery will also offer a few barrel-aged releases throughout 2023, including a collaboration brew with Helioterra Winery and fan-favorite Barrel-Aged Sedna Tiramisu Stout. Lastly, Ecliptic will continue to produce small-batch, draft-only beers from its pilot system. These extremely limited kegs are available at one or both taprooms.
