This year the Oregon Brewers Festival goes all Oregon breweries for the first time, and Ecliptic Brewing will debut LIGO Key Lime Gose for the states largest beer fest. Named after the world’s largest gravitational wave observatory, LIGO features key lime puree and Ecliptic’s house lactobacillus strain.
More from a beer release:
Ecliptic is brewing the beer specifically for OBF, where it will be the first official keg tapped at the event on July 24. Additionally, Ecliptic Brewing is hosting the 13th annual Oregon Brewer’s Brunch and Parade on the same day.
“We were honored to be selected as the OBF Brunch host this year,” says Ecliptic Brewing Owner and Brewmaster, John Harris. “I wanted to make something unique just for the festival, so when Oregon Fruit Products came to me with a special-run key lime puree, it got my creative juices flowing. A Key Lime Gose sounded refreshing and tart – the perfect option for summer – and I think it will be a fun beer to make.”
In addition to the festival, LIGO Key Lime Gose will also be available to purchase on draft at Ecliptic’s restaurant beginning July 24th. For more information about the Oregon Brewer’s Brunch and tickets, visit here.
