Portland, OR – Ecliptic Brewing has partnered withGigantic Brewing on the newest addition to its Cosmic Collaboration series, Star Destroyer.  Brewed in the style of an Imperial Schwarzbier and with a nod to Star Wars, Star Destroyer is cleverly styled as an Imperial Darkside Lager.

“In 2016 I approached Van Havig ofGigantic about a collaboration for 2017. He agreed only if we called the beer Star Destroyer,” said Owner andBrewmaster of Ecliptic Brewing, John Harris. “Brewing with the boys from Gigantic is always a good time!”

Ecliptic and Gigantic collaborated in2013 on TicWitTic American Sour Ale, brewed for the opening of Ecliptic.  Both breweries knew that another collaboration was bound to happen, but little did they know that a beer brewed to the tunes of The Imperial March would be it. Check out the description of Star Destroyer below.
