Ecliptic Launching Raspberry Golden Ale with Chocolate to Celebrate 7th Anniversary

Ecliptic Brewing, the North Portland brewery founded by Oregon beer icon, John Harris, is about to complete its seventh orbit around the sun. As is tradition for Ecliptic, the brewery will release a special anniversary beer- Seventh Orbit: Raspberry Golden Ale with Chocolate – on October 16.

Says Ecliptic Owner and Brewmaster, John Harris, “It’s been a wild year, but here we are celebrating another anniversary. I’m really thankful for that.”

In regards to the latest beer in the lineup, Raspberry Golden Ale with Chocolate, Harris has always had an affinity for brewing fruit beers, as he was one of the first to do so.

“Raspberry was the first fruit I ever brewed with, and this is only the second raspberry beer to be brewed here at Ecliptic,” he said.

Brewed with real raspberries and a touch of chocolate, this golden ale gets an extra flavor punch from complementing berry-forward Enigma and Ariana hops.

“Who doesn’t like raspberry on desserts?! This beer has a nice malt base, lots of lively hops from dry hopping, and a balanced raspberry character,” Harris said.

Seventh Orbit: Raspberry Golden Ale with Chocolate will first be released in Ecliptic’s restaurant on October 16 in 16-ounce cans and draft. It will soon follow throughout Ecliptic’s distribution network.

While the company will not be hosting its annual anniversary party with live music in the parking lot, Ecliptic will still be celebrating with some fun, special promotions; visit Facebook event page for more details. They will also be donating 10% of their restaurant sales to the Jeremey Wilson Foundation, which is a musicians’ health and services nonprofit that assists individual musicians and their families during medical emergencies. Ecliptic is also releasing a limited-edition tie dye anniversary tee shirt, soon available for sale both online and at the restaurant.
