On , Ecliptic Brewing will release its first barrel-aged beer, the Orange Giant Barleywine. Finding its inspiration in the upcoming solstice, Ecliptic’s Orange Giant Barleywine will bring warmth to the chilly winter days.
“All of us at the brewery have been looking forward to the awakening of our Orange Giant,” said John Harris, owner and brewmaster at Eclipitc. “After spending 10 months in 12-year-old bourbon barrels, this barleywine packs a big punch.”
