Ecliptic, Ruse to Release Collaboration Italian-Style Pils

Portland’s Ecliptic Brewing and Ruse Brewing— led by co-owners and brewers Shaun Kalis and Devin Benware — have teamed up to create an Italian-style Pilsner launching in 16-ounce cans and draft this May. This will be Ecliptic’s first Cosmic Collaboration Series beer of 2020 and the first of this series available in 16-ounce cans.

Brewed with German lager yeast, Weyerman Extra Pale Pils malt, and dry hopped with all German hops, the result is a Pilsner with a crisp, clean finish and fresh hop aroma. With spring officially here, this beer makes the perfect patio partner as a light and refreshing option.

“We’re excited to play with a new style that we’ve never made before and also offer a lager in cans,” says Ecliptic Owner and Brewmaster, John Harris. “We’ve been friends with the Ruse crew for a long time. Sean and I have played music together for years, and Ruse has always been a part of our summer Brewer’s and Their Bands event. It’s about time we made a beer together!”

The Italian-style Pilsner is now available in both draft and 16-ounce cans throughout Ecliptic Brewing’s distribution network. An official virtual release party will be held on Zoom on May 14th from 5-6:30PM, with both John Harris and Shaun Kalis in attendance.
