PORTLAND, Oregon – Ecliptic Brewing is releasing the next beer in their new Moon Room Series: Märzen. The beer will ship March 16th in 16-ounce can four-packs and draft. The Moon Room Series features a collection of lager beer in celebration of Ecliptic opening its second location – The Moon Room – which is well setup for lagering.
Moon Room Series: Märzen is brewed with Munich and Carapils malts, giving the beer a light toast flavor, balanced with Hallertau Tradition hops. This German beer is traditionally brewed in the spring, as “Märzen” means “March” in German. Ecliptic’s Owner and Brewmaster, John Harris, says, “Märzen is a great springtime beer. The caramel flavors and bright hop crispness make these drinkable as the days get longer. We ran a test brew on our two-barrel pilot brewery to develop this beer and are excited about the final result”.
Moon Room Series: Märzen will be released in both draft and 16-ounce cans throughout Ecliptic Brewing’s distribution network beginning March 16th. Visit Ecliptic’s website for up-to-date details on potential release events.
