Ecliptic Brewing & Gigantic Collaborate On Star Destroyer Imperial Darkside Lager

image
This morning we get our first look at a new collaboration beer coming from Ecliptic Brewing.  This is Star Destroyer Imperial Darkside Lager and it is a collaboration with Gigantic Brewing in Portland, OR.  Look for Star Destroyer to hit 8%-AbV and it will be packaged in 22oz bottles at Ecliptic.  Stay tuned for release info.

UPDATE 21 Feb 2017 from Ecliptic

Ecliptic Brewing has partnered with Gigantic Brewing on the newest addition to its Cosmic Collaboration series, Star Destroyer. Brewed in the style of an Imperial Schwarzbier and with a nod to Star Wars, Star Destroyer is cleverly styled as an Imperial Darkside Lager.

“In 2016 I approached Van Havig of Gigantic about a collaboration for 2017.  He agreed only if we called the beer Star Destroyer,” said Owner and Brewmaster of Ecliptic Brewing, John Harris. “Brewing with the boys from Gigantic is always a good time!”

Ecliptic and Gigantic collaborated in 2013 on TicWitTic American Sour Ale, brewed for the opening of Ecliptic. Both breweries knew that another collaboration was bound to happen, but little did they know that a beer brewed to the tunes of The Imperial March would be it. Check out the description of Star Destroyer below.
