Ecliptic Launches Pyxis Pilsner in the Portland Market

Ecliptic Brewing has launched its latest Limited Release Series beer – Pyxis Pilsner – last week in draft and 12-ounce, six pack cans. Pyxis (pronounced “pik-sis”) will be offered in limited distribution through Maletis Beverage in the Portland market to start.

This classic German-style beer is made with noble hops and clocks in at 5.5% ABV. It is Ecliptic’s first canned lager outside of their Special Release and Cosmic Collaboration Series. Says Ecliptic Brewing’s Sales Manager, Erin Grey Kemplin, “We have been looking at doing a 12-ounce canned Pilsner for years. As a devoted lager drinker myself, I think Pyxis is a much needed addition to our lineup”.

While Ecliptic plans to keep distribution limited to begin with, there will be room for expansion to other markets in the future. Ecliptic Brewing’s second location, the Moon Room, is planning to open this summer and is well set up for making lagers. The company plans to focus on the production of Pyxis Pilsner here.

Says Ecliptic’s Owner and Brewmaster, John Harris, “The first beer Ecliptic ever made year-round was a Pilsner. Over time the beer was discontinued because we did not have enough production capacity to give a pilsner the lagering time it deserves. With the addition of our Moon Room brewing space and its already built-out lagering capability, we are now in a position to add Pyxis Pilsner to our lineup. I am super excited to get it packaged for consumption in a 12 oz can.”
