Portland, OR – Ecliptic Brewing welcomes Spring with the release of Zenith Grapefruit Gose and Deimos Imperial Red Ale. These beers are part of Ecliptic’s Seasonal and Special Release Series respectively. Zenith Grapefruit Gose and Deimos Imperial Red Ale will be available in March.
“With loads of dry hops, Deimos is a deliciously hoppy imperial red ale and Zenith is crisp, tart, and refreshing,” said owner and head brewmaster John Harris. “We are excited for these new beers to be released.”
Zenith Grapefruit Gose (pronounced Gose-uh) is a traditional German-style sour ale with a touch of coriander and salt. Our interpretation of this style includes grapefruit, for a refreshing beer, perfect for springtime when the sun re-emerges above our celestial sphere. ABV 4.5%
Deimos Imperial Red Ale is the outer sibling of the other Martian moon, Phobos. Brewed with Pale malt and four types of Crystal malts, Deimos Imperial Red Ale is rich with caramel malt flavor. Simcoe, Nugget, and Columbus hops impart a bold hop flavor and aroma to this pleasingly dense ale. ABV 7.5%
Both beers will be available in the pub and distributed throughout the Ecliptic Brewing distribution network in draft and 22oz bottles.
Ecliptic beers are available at the brewery (825 North Cook St), in bottle and on-tap throughout the area, and distributed by: Maletis Beverage (Portland, Salem, Vancouver WA), Bigfoot Beverage (Eugene, Bend, Coast), Fort George Distributing (Northern Oregon Coast), Summit Distribution (Southern Oregon), Click Distributing (Seattle, Tacoma, Spokane, Northern Idaho), Dickerson Distributing (Bellingham), Crooked Stave Artisans (Colorado), and Freedom Distributors (North Carolina).
