Ecliptic Brewing Announces Design Refresh


PORTLAND, Ore. — At just shy of three years old, Ecliptic Brewing announces a standout update to their All the Time Series design.

The focus at Ecliptic is about creating a sense of place in both the restaurant and the beer they build. The first few years have also been focused on getting the Ecliptic brand in front of people and on the shelf. Recently, the team decided that it was time to hone in the personality of their core beers and let that shine with a move toward custom art.

“With the recent addition of Carina Peach Sour Ale to the line-up, we felt that it was time to give our year-round beers their own identity but still keep them part of the family.” said Owner and Brewmaster John Harris. “I am excited to see the new labels hit the shelves!”

Designed by Sasquatch Agency, the new labels feature familiar themes that are true to the brewery— creativity and a nod to astronomy. “We’re flipping the read so we can get more expressive, while also helping visually differentiate each beer as the core line up grows,” said Sean Haggerty Senior Art Director at Sasquatch Agency.


And there is more.

Ecliptic Brewing has also taken this time to update Spica Pilsner with a new hop variety and name. This beer will now feature Mandarina Bavaria hops and be called Spectra Hoppy Pilsner.

“When I first saw Mandarina Bavaria hops I knew that I wanted to one day incorporate them into our Pilsner,” said Harris.

The addition of Mandarina Bavaria hops to Ecliptic Brewing’s Pilsner gives the beer a pleasant citrus aroma. Further, in order to better describe this unfiltered Kellerbier that casts an array of hop flavors and aromas, it will now be called Spectra Hoppy Pilsner.

The Ecliptic Brewing All the Time Series now includes Orbiter IPA, Spectra Hoppy Pilsner, Carina Peach Sour Ale, and Capella Porter (draft only).
