Ecliptic Brewing to Launch Tucana Tangerine Sour Ale in “All the Time” Series

Portland, Oregon-based Ecliptic Brewing is releasing its Tucana Tangerine Sour Ale in 500ml glass bottles as part of the “All the Time” Series in January, 2020. This sunset-hued sour ale, which first launched last spring in 12-ounce cans, was originally part of Ecliptic’s Seasonal Series, but the company saw room for growth with the brand. Tucana will join Ecliptic’s Starburst IPA, Capella Porter and Carina Peach Sour Ale in the series of beers available year-round.

Says Ecliptic’s Sales Manager, Erin Grey Kemplin, “Tucana was a very popular beer for Ecliptic in package and draft in 2019. This combined with the popularity of tangerine and a more approachable ABV made it seem like a natural to add to our year-round offerings.”

Tucana Tangerine Sour Ale is brewed with pale and wheat malts, Cascade Hops, and it gets its citrusy burst from real tangerines from a local fruit supplier: Oregon Fruit Products.

Tucana Tangerine Sour Ale will be released in both draft and 500ml glass bottles throughout Ecliptic Brewing’s distribution network in January of 2020. A release party is planned at Ecliptic’s restaurant on January 25th.
