Ecliptic Brewing Releases Callisto Tripel with Blackcurrants


PORTLAND, Ore. — Ecliptic Brewing continues to expand their Special Release line-up in 2016 with the addition of another unique beer. Callisto Tripel with Blackcurrants, inspired by their love of beers brewed with fruit, will be released on April 27th in both draft and 22oz package.

“Our head brewer, Phil Roche, tossed out the idea for this beer” said owner and brewmaster John Harris. “We worked together to bring you this purple work of brewing magic with just the right amount of sweet and tart notes.”
