Eclipti, Sierra Nevada Collaborating on Secchi Hoppy Wheat Ale

Ecliptic Brewing of Portland, Oregon and Sierra Nevada Brewing of Chico, California have teamed up to brew a Cosmic Collaboration beer. Secchi Hoppy Wheat Ale will be the fourth release in the series for 2023, shipping June 21st in 16-ounce cans and draft.

“When I first started brewing,” says John Harris, Ecliptic’s Owner and Brewmaster, “Sierra Nevada was it. The ‘OG’. I am honored to be able to do this collaboration with them and Ken Grossman, their Founder. We decided to make a wheat beer for June. There’s lots of hop flavor and brightness from the hops”.

Ecliptic + Sierra Nevada Secchi Hoppy Wheat Ale starts with Pale and Wheat Malts and is hopped with Strata, Amarillo, McKenzie, and Citra. Real orange and lemon peel add a citrusy flavor to this fruit-forward beer. It is named after a mountain range on the Moon, “Montes Secchi,” paying homage to the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains, and it clocks in at 6.5% ABV.

Terrence Sullivan, Product Manager for Sierra Nevada, says, “Ecliptic Brewing’s founder, John Harris, has been a pioneer in West Coast craft beer for more than 30 years. His innovation has blazed a trail for an entire community, and he has influenced brewing up and down the coast. Over the years, our breweries have shared insights, knowledge, and friendship—along with a few great beers. We’re honored to join forces on Secchi Hoppy Wheat Ale, highlighting the unique flavors of the Oregon landscape.” 

Ecliptic + Sierra Nevada Secchi Hoppy Wheat Ale will be released in 16-ounce cans and draft throughout Ecliptic Brewing’s distribution network on June 21st. Visit Ecliptic’s website for up-to-date details on this release and potential release events.
