Ecliptic Brewing Celebrates 5th Anniversary with “5 Beers for 5 Years” Series

In celebration of its 5th anniversary, Ecliptic Brewing is releasing its newest Cosmic Collaboration series, “5 Beers for 5 Years.” This upcoming year the brewery will team with five other esteemed breweries to brew five celestial concoctions.

More from a press release:

Space can feel a bit lonely, so John Harris, Ecliptic Brewing’s Owner and Brewmaster, decided to make the journey with some of his good friends in the industry. He says, “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. The collaborations will celebrate old and new brewing styles and will be available in 500ml bottles and draft.”

While you can expect special releases throughout the entire year, the series kicks off on February 3rd with Ecliptic Brewing and Brooklyn Brewery’s Tangerine Farmhouse Ale. A Cosmic Brunch with John Harris and Brooklyn Brewmaster Garrett Oliver is planned at Ecliptic’s pub. 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.

Fans will be able to try the Cosmic Collaborations in many of Ecliptic’s areas of distribution at their local participating “5 Beers for 5 Years” location. Each of these places will be tapping every new beer as they are released and celebrating with the Ecliptic crew!
