Ecliptic + Modern Times Cosmic - Pineapple Hazy IPA release party at ABV Public House

Come hang out with the Ecliptic Brewing and Modern Times teams in Hillsboro! Compete in a paper rocket ship flying contest to win prizes.

More on Ecliptic Brewing's collaboration Hazy IPA with Modern Times Beer

Portland, Oregon. Earth ... Ecliptic Brewing has teamed with Modern Times Beer for their next Cosmic Collaboration.

John Harris, Ecliptic Brewing Owner and Brewmaster, hoped this collaboration would be a way of welcoming Modern Times to their Portland outpost. “I have enjoyed Modern Times Beer for a few years,” he says, “and when we learned that they were moving to town, I reached out to Jacob in San Diego to see if they were interested in teaming up.”

Hazy IPAs haven’t lost any momentum this year and in deciding what kind of beer to make the two breweries looked at ways to experiment with the popular style. John says, “I had mentioned pineapple with Mat Sandoval, Production Manager of the Belmont Fermentorium, when we were talking about what to make. Mat said we should definitely use Denali hops for their tropical qualities and almost pineapple like character.” The result is a Pineapple Hazy IPA brewed with Denali, Citra & Mosaic hops.

In addition to draft, this will be Ecliptic Brewing’s first release in 500ml bottles. According to Alaric Lawrence, Ecliptic’s Packaging Manager, “It’s an exciting time for us to step in a new direction with our packaged beer. Trends have shown that beer drinkers prefer bottles that are a true pint and easier to finish in one pour.”

About Ecliptic Brewing + Modern Times Pineapple Hazy IPA

Fresh pineapple coalesces with Denali, Citra & Mosaic hops for a citrusy, tropical party of astronomical proportions.

ABV 8.5%

Beer and Bacon Pairing Night with The Lost Abbey & Port Brewing at Toronado
Aug

6:00 PM18:00

Beer and Bacon Pairing Night with The Lost Abbey & Port Brewing at Toronado

5 Port Brewing/ Lost Abbey paired with 5 house made Bacons!

Lost Abbey
Deliverance
A blend of bourbon barrel-aged Serpent’s Stout and brandy barrel-aged Angels Share, Deliverance is the epic battle being waged between heaven and hell for the souls of mortal men… and your enjoyment in a glass.
AROMA
The expressive fight for souls on earth begins with molasses and raisins clashing for supremacy. There’s a struggle between licorice and caramel to see which will support with a dash of cocoa exuding as well.
TASTE
A lively beer on the palette wrestling in a tug of war of sorts for your affection. At first there is booze. Then there are figgy notes with a semi-sweet edge that almost develops were it not for the bakers chocolate and bitterness that balances out in the finish. Clearly this is not a beer for the faint of heart or weakened souls. This is fortuitous beer to accompany you on your journey to heaven or hell should you be delivered.
ABV:
13.5%

Cuvee De Tomme
A massive brown ale base that is made from four fermentable sugars including Malted Barley, Raisins, Candi Sugar and Sour Cherries, this beer is fully fermented before being placed in Bourbon barrels where the beer ages for one year with the Sour Cherries and the wild Brettanomyces yeast that we inoculate the barrels with.
One of the most complex and unique beers we make each year.
AROMA
Cuvee starts with a complex nose of tart cherries, vanilla and dusty cocoa finish. There is also an underlying basis of yeast esters and wild yeast components that result in an extraordinary complex nose.
TASTE
As this beer is made from our Judgment Day, there are some similarities in the taste profile. However, as this beer is aged in Oak Barrels, there are also additional layers of Vanilla, Tannins and Sourness from the Cherries and the secondary fermentation and extensive aging.
ABV:
11%


Red Poppy
Perhaps no country embraces the use of fruit in beers more so than Belgium. Numerous traditional as well as regional specialty ales are infused with every sort of fruit imaginable. In this way, the flavor of the fruit becomes especially prominent.
Red Poppy Ale is a veritable celebration of Sour Cherries in an explosion of aromas and tastes. Brewed from a brown ale base and aged in our oak barrels for over 12 months, this beer is not for the faint of heart.
The Golden Poppy is the state flower of California and the Red Poppy is found in Flanders Fields where our inspiration for this beer comes from. This beer is 6.5% ABV and is available in 375 ml bottles and on draft at inspired locations.
AROMA
Red Poppy starts with a complex nose of tart cherries, vanilla and cinnamon like finish. There is also an underlying basis of yeast esters and wild yeast components that result in an extraordinary complex nose.
TASTE
Red Poppy starts its life out as our Dawn Patrol Dark. Post primary fermentation, we blend this with some of our Amigo Lager at transfer to barrel. During the fermentation in the barrel from the micro organisms, we gain acidity which results in a beer with hints of Vanilla, Tannins and Sourness from the Cherries and the secondary fermentation and extensive aging.
ABV: Barrels Used:
6.5% French Oak

Port Brewing
Anniversary IPA
Our massively hopped strong IPA brewed in celebration of our Anniversary each year.
Using Amarillo, CTZ, Citra, Centennial, and Mosaic hops and dry-hopping with CTZ, Citra, and Mosaic, Anniversary Ale has an intensely hoppy body with fresh tones of pine and citrus. A seasonal release that will satisfy any hop-head who has the pleasure to try it. In addition, we don’t want to make people “wait in line” to try an amazing IPA, so we also bottle it!
HopsAmarillo, CTZ, Citra, Centennila, Mosaic
ABV10.5%

Summer Pale Ale (SPA) is our version of the iconic West Coast style Pale Ale.
Life’s better at the water’s edge. Be it a beach, a lake, or a sweltering day by the pool. Each of these situations is improved by friends, conversations, and a crisp pale ale. Our SPA is brewed with a juicy and boisterous blend of hops including Chinook, Amarillo, and Cascade. SPA begins with a bouquet of citrus and peach aromas, then leads to a refreshing orange and grapefruit-like dryness, with just a kiss of sweetness on the finish.
AROMA: A largely citric and piney blast of hop aromas greet you. Resinous qualities of fresh leaf hops abound and really drive the aroma of this beer.
TASTE: Your first sip will awake your taste buds with some spicy hop qualities. The finish of the beer is quite dry which allows the hop flavor and intensity to build. Your next sip will confirm these flavors are large and in charge of this beer.
HopsAmarillo, Cascade, Chinook, Centennial, CTZ, Simcoe

Seattle FC Pub Crawl with Fremont, Silver City, & Georgetown

Press Releas

Silver City Brewery, Georgetown Brewing, and Fremont Brewing are ecstatic to announce partnership on this year's Seattle Sounders-focused pub crawl event to be held on Saturday, September 1st. Celebrating Seattle sports and the local pub culture, the event will see hundreds of thirsty Seattle soccer fans coming together in Pioneer Square over local craft beer at a variety of beloved establishments, culminating with participants attending the Sporting Kansas City at Sounders FC match en masse at CenturyLink Field, 1PM PT.

Inspired by the overwhelming popularity of Silver City Brewery’s annual Mariners Pub Crawl, which in 2018 had nearly 600 attendees and 14 participating pubs, one of the most frequent points of feedback was a desire for a similar, Sounders-focused event. In October of 2017, the first annual "Seattle FC Pub Crawl" was held with a host of several local breweries. The event was a blast, so we've decided to do it again-- this year with our friends at Georgetown Brewing and Fremont Brewing.


Tickets to the Seattle Soccer Pub Crawl go on sale July 6th at 4:00pm for $45/each. Price includes a ticket to the match as well as an exclusive t-shirt commemorating the pub crawl, with all three participating brands represented. When purchasing, attendees will choose their “home brewery” where they will have the option to check-in early and pick up their swag in the days leading up to the event.

An option will also be available for season ticket holders that excludes the game ticket but provides the commemorative shirt and pub passport. These are available for $25.

The pub crawl will commence at 11:00am on Saturday, September 1st. If participants have not already checked-in, they will be able to pick up their game tickets and t-shirts at a designated location to be announced. From there, attendees will be able to visit over a dozen locations throughout Pioneer Square, all featuring beverages by Georgetown, Fremont, and Silver City Brewery. A pub passport will be provided that lists the participating pubs, as well as a map of which brands are being poured at each location. Attendees are encouraged to partake responsibly and choose a “top few” locations to visit. Visiting every single location is not mandatory, nor encouraged.

Reuben's Brews 6th Anniversary Celebration at Brouwer's Cafe

Reuben's Brews 6th Anniversary Celebration at Brouwer's Cafe

From his humble beginnings as a garage homebrewer, thanks to a thoughtful gift from his son, Reuben, Adam Robbins has always looked to create the best brews he could. After using family, friends, and strangers to test his recipes – and winning a silver medal at a national homebrew competition – he embarked on his own full-time beer journey alongside his wife, Grace, and brother-in-law, Mike.

That was 6 years ago, and by all accounts, he has been incredibly successful in both the local and national beer scene. He has gone from a small 7-barrel brewhouse tucked away in Ballard, to two brewhouses, 15-barrel and 30-barrel, capable of upwards of 13,000 gallons of beer a year. That’s enough beer to quench the immense thirst of Washington drinkers.

The team at Reuben’s has been heavily involved in the community since the inception of the brewery. It has been a point of pride for them to be good stewards and friends of their fellow neighborhood residents. You can frequently find Reuben’s beers at almost every beer festival or other community gathering where fine beer is poured.

We’ve always been huge fans of the work they do in Ballard and in 2015, they created Gobsmacked, an amazing IIPA, for our tenth anniversary. More recently, we have been partnering with them to produce Triumvirate, our double-gold medal winning house beer, for over two years now. We couldn’t be happier to have the relationship we do with the team at Reuben’s and we are excited to be able to celebrate their 6th Anniversary with them. Come out on August 3rd to congratulate Adam and the rest of the family on six years of making bloody good beer.

The plot of The Adventures of Backwoods and Brothers Cascadia tells the story of two Columbia Gorge-ish breweries attempting to emancipate themselves. For one collaborative beer, Backwoods Brewing Co. and Brothers Cascadia Brewing Co. desire to break free from the haze, both physical and mental. Much of the conflict in the Peaks and Pints Lodge Meeting featuring the two breweries stems from Backwoods and Brothers Cascadia’s attempt to embrace their classical training and brew a traditional Northwest style India Pale Ale then deal with their success. Their collaborative beer, Out of the Haze IPA, has turned society’s heads with its clarity, as well as the amazing hop bill of Simcoe, El Dorado, Citra and Mosaic hops for all the fruit flavors with a slightly bitter finish. The story ends with the two breweries taping their other craft beers and the Peaks and Pints patrons weeping with joy.

The Deschutes Brewery 30th anniversary collaboration “family tree” includes John Harris, Deschutes Brewery’s original brewmaster with Ecliptic Brewery, Frank Appleton a brewing consultant responsible for creating the recipes of Deschutes’ beloved brands such as Black Butte Porter and Cascade Golden Ale, Tim Gossack from Bell’s Brewery, Tony Lawrence from Boneyard Brewery, long time brewer Mark Vickery, Paul Arney from The Ale Apothecary, and Cam O’Connor and Larry Sidor now with Crux Fermentation Project.

The guest collaborators partnered with current Deschutes Brewery brewers, Veronica Vega, Ryan Schmiege, Robin Johnson and Ben Kehs to make the unique brews. All were made at Deschutes’ Bend brewing facility.

 “There have been a lot of great brewers that have impacted our process, our mission, our values and our success over these three decades,” said Fish, “I’m glad they’ve chosen to come back to commemorate the time we’ve spent together.” These brewers will head to Drake Park on Saturday, June 30, to help showcase the beer and reminisce about the days at Deschutes.
