A second collaboration between Ecliptic Brewing and Gigantic Brewing Co. is now fully operational.
The new beer is named Star Destroyer, an 8 percent ABV “imperial darkside lager” that is brewed in the style of a imperial schwarzbier. This is the second time the two breweries have collaborated, after they joined forces on TicWitTic, a 3.9 American sour ale that was brewed to commemorate the opening of Portland, Ore.-based Ecliptic Brewing in 2013.
“In 2016 I approached Van Havig of Gigantic about a collaboration for 2017,” said John Harris, owner and brewmaster of Ecliptic Brewing, in a press release. “He agreed only if we called the beer Star Destroyer. Brewing with the boys from Gigantic is always a good time!”
According to a press release, Star Destroyer will be packaged in 22-ounce bottles and is scheduled to be released for the first time during event a Ecliptic Brewing on March 1.
