Ecliptic Brewing debut’s Brewer’s Spotlight and Rotating Lager Series

Since announcing their 2020 packaged beer calendar, Ecliptic Brewing has more new years news on the launch of two new beer series: Brewer’s Spotlight Series and Rotating Lager Series. Both available as draft only options, this expansion allows for more creative outlets in their Portland, Oregon brewhouse.

More from a press release:

The Brewer’s Spotlight Series will provide opportunities for Ecliptic’s brew team to unleash their creativity and push beer style boundaries. Each brewer will get a chance to brew their own beer – with no style restrictions – and will be featured in a video on Ecliptic’s social media, allowing fans to get a behind-the-scenes peek into the company’s brewing world.

While Ecliptic has always had a lager on tap at the restaurant, the Rotating Lager Series was born from the rising popularity of lagers. Says Ecliptic Brewing Owner and Brewmaster, John Harris, “My first ‘All The Time’ beer ever bottled was a lager, and this series allows us to explore and showcase even more options for our customers.”

The Brewer’s Spotlight and Lager Series beers are available on draft at Ecliptic Brewing’s restaurant and in limited distribution. Check Ecliptic’s website for current rotation:
