Ecliptic & Melvin Brewing Collaborate On Space Ghost Session Barleywine

imageToday we get to see a new interstellar collaboration coming from Ecliptic and Melvin Brewing.  This is Space Ghost and it is a golden session barleywine ale brewed with Citra, Mosaic, Galaxy and Southern Cross.  This beer rockets in at 8%-AbV and this is the 22oz bottle.

This update form Ecliptic:

From Fort George to Worthy and on to Gigantic, the Cosmic Collaboration Series from Ecliptic Brewing has most recently been Oregon brewery focused.  This time around however, Ecliptic looked out west for their next collaboration partner. Melvin Brewing from Alpine, WY traveled to Portland to create a beer that defies all explanations.  The Cosmic Collaboration is playfully named, Space Ghost Golden Session Barleywine and takes inspiration from Melvin’s illustrious Imperial IPA’s.

“When Jeremy Tofte (Co-Founder/Field Hoperative at Melvin Brewing) and I first talked about this beer he wanted to make a barleywine,” said Owner and Brewmaster of EclipticBrewing, John Harris.  “I thought a barleywine in the summer? No way! That’s when the idea for a golden session barleywine was born.” said Harris.
