Ecliptic Partners with Arizona Beer & Cider to Launch Arizona Market

Ecliptic Brewing of Portland, Oregon is opening a new market in Q1 of 2023. Ecliptic has partnered with Arizona Beer and Cider Company (ABC) to launch their Arizona territory in early 2023.

Ecliptic Brewing first opened in 2013 and has shown steady growth since, with an especially large boom after installing their canning line in 2017. The company currently distributes their beer all throughout Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Idaho, North Carolina, British Columbia (Canada) and Japan. The partnership with ABC will open up Arizona for distribution, with a focus on the Phoenix, Flagstaff and Tucson areas.  

Owned by the Ebel brothers and based in Phoenix, ABC is a craft-focused distributor aimed at featuring quality products with unique stories. With the latest distribution technology, ample refrigerated space and trucks, combined with hardworking, beer-educated people, ABC is committed to quality. ABC’s motto is: “We Build Brands”, and they sell some of the best liquids on land!

John Harris, Ecliptic’s Owner and Brewmaster, says, “Arizona Beer and Cider reached out to us directly to join their beer portfolio. After meeting with them, we saw a good fit and are launching in early 2023”. With the addition of Ecliptic Brewing’s second brewery and taproom, the Moon Room, opening last November, the opportunity for new markets followed. Continues Harris, “I have judged beer at GABF many times with one of their owners- Jason Ebel. Their respect for craft beer is very evident, and I’m excited to work with them.”

Ecliptic Brewing will launch the Arizona market with a variety of beers, including the company’s flagship beer – Ecliptic Starburst IPA – and Phaser Hazy IPA, as well as LIGO West Coast IPA, Pyxis Pilsner and Tucana Tangerine Sour Ale. Check local retailers for beer availability throughout the state.

Ecliptic Brewing has planned an Arizona market launch, including a visit from John Harris, for mid-February. Visit Ecliptic’s website and Facebook page for up-to-date details on potential release events.
