Portland’s Ecliptic Brewing is celebrating the 4th of July today with their Fruit Fest Frenzy, a sort of mini-fruit beer fest featuring at least ten Ecliptic fruit beers pouring. I guess it never occurred to me that Ecliptic has been brewing as many fruit beers as they have, but this sounds like a fun way to spend at least part of your holiday today if you’re in Portland.
Here’s the press release:
Ecliptic Brewing will feature a frenzy of fruit beers at their pub to celebrate the Fourth of July. This year, more than ten Ecliptic fruit beers will be available hosting a variety of fruits including cherries, raspberries, grapefruit and more. There will also be rare, barrel-aged fruit beers included in the line-up.
“Our fruit beers this year are pretty diverse and fun to try, especially the barrel-aged beers,” said Owner and Brewmaster John Harris. “Come taste one of my favorites, the Rye Barrel-Aged UltraViolet Blackberry Sour Ale.”
This year Ecliptic will also feature some added fun involving fruit: a special burger with a fruit component and fruit beer popsicles.
