Portland, Oregon. Earth. (August 17, 2022)- Portland’s Ecliptic Brewing and Seattle’s Holy Mountain Brewing are releasing an Extra Juicy Pale Ale this summer. The fourth beer in Ecliptic’s 2022 Cosmic Collaboration Series will ship August 24th in 16-ounce cans and draft.
Ecliptic + Holy Mountain Extra Juicy Pale Ale is brewed with Pale and Pilsner malts and dry-hopped with Vista and BRU-1. This juicy brew packs a tropical punch with notes of stone fruit, melon and pear. It clocks in at 6% ABV. The label, designed by Sasquatch Agency, features a pair of skeleton astronauts and is a nod to some of Holy Mountain’s branding.
Says Ecliptic’s Owner and Brewmaster, John Harris, “Colin [at Holy Mountain] and I had been discussing doing a collab for a couple years. Holy Mountain makes very unique, flavorful beers and is a favorite of many Ecliptic brewers. I am glad we were able to share this with the world in 2022. Colin and I talked about many different styles but settled on a very drinkable style for the summer. This extra juicy pale delivers.”
Ecliptic + Holy Mountain Extra Juicy Pale Ale will be released in 16-ounce cans and draft throughout Ecliptic Brewing’s distribution network on August 24th. Visit Ecliptic’s website for up-to-date details on this release and potential release events, including an event in Seattle on September 1st at Ridgewood Bottle & Tap.
