Ecliptic:Wicked Weed:Stone Points Unknown IPA

PORTLAND, Ore. (May 11, 2015)Ecliptic Brewing, a craft brewery and restaurant in Portland’s Mississippi neighborhood, has partnered with Wicked Weed Brewing and Stone Brewing Co.to create Points Unknown, a West Coast Imperial IPA blended with a Belgian­-style tripel aged in tequila barrels that were previously used to mature red wine. The Collaboration beer was brewed at Stone Brewing Co. and Ecliptic will be holding a special release party on May 20 at 5:30 p.m. at its brewery, located at 825 N Cook in Portland.

The Ecliptic and Stone teams will be on­hand at the tapping to celebrate one of the first kegs available in Oregon. Additionally, revelers will have the opportunity to taste not only that the collaboration beer, but also kegs of the two un-blended base beers used to create the final beer blend.

“We’re incredibly excited to tap Points Unknown at Ecliptic,” said John Harris, Ecliptic owner and head brewmaster. “Collaborating with our friends at Wicked Weed and Stone has been an incredible experience for us, and I think our guests will love trying not only Points Unknown, but also the base beers.”

About Points Unknown IPA
A blend of fresh double IPA (80%) and a barrel­ aged Belgian­-style tripel (20%). The latter was placed in a barrel that housed red wine before finding a second life holding añejo tequila, providing a wealth of flavors to flavor the tripel and, eventually, the entire beer.
IBU: 72
ABV: 9.5%
