Ecliptic to Release New Orange Giant Variant

Ecliptic Brewing is releasing four versions of their award-winning Orange Giant Barleywine this December. Along with the classic, which Ecliptic has brewed every year since 2014, there will also be a brand-new Triple Dry-Hopped Edition. Both beers will be released in 16-ounce cans and draft as part of Ecliptic’s Special Release Series. The brewery will also release two barrel-aged versions as part of their Reserve Series: Rye Barrel-Aged and Bourbon Barrel-Aged, in 500ml bottles and draft.

“Last year, we had fun adding a new variation to our classic Orange Giant release when we made the Pineapple Upside Down Cake Edition,” said Ecliptic’s Owner and Brewmaster, John Harris. “This year, the brew team put their heads together again and came up with a triple hopped version. We will brew the beer and dry hop it three separate times for a big punch of hop aroma. It will be bold!”

The barrel-aged versions of this brew have been sleeping in either 503 Distilling rye barrels or Freeland Spirits bourbon barrels for nearly one year, which will add deep complexity to each variant.

All four Orange Giant Barleywine variants will be released in both draft and 16-ounce cans (500ml bottles for Reserve Series) throughout Ecliptic Brewing’s distribution network beginning December 8th. Visit Ecliptic’s website for up-to-date details on potential release events.
