Ninth Orbit: New Zealand-style Pilsner is brewed with Pilsner, Munich and Caramalt and Harvest yeast. Galaxy, Simcoe and Motueka hops complete this crisp brew, with Motueka hops originating in New Zealand. Clocking in at 5.5% ABV and finishing with flavors of pineapple, lime and passionfruit, this celebratory lager is highly drinkable and a perfect birthday beer for Ecliptic Brewing.
Says Ecliptic’s Owner and Brewmaster, John Harris, “Pilsner styles are getting more popular. Our first New Zealand-style Pilsner was a collaboration with Garage Project out of New Zealand several years ago. That recipe served as our inspiration for this ninth anniversary celebration beer. It turned out really nice.”
Ninth Orbit: New Zealand-style Pilsner will be released in 16-ounce cans and draft throughout Ecliptic Brewing’s distribution network on October 19th. The company will celebrate the release and its ninth anniversary with a multi-day party and specials at their restaurant from October 20-23rd. Visit Ecliptic’s event page for up-to-date details on this party.
Eighth Orbit: Italian-style Pilsner
Brewed to celebrate our 9th anniversary, this New Zealand-style Pilsner hits crisp with fruit flavors of pineapple, lime, passion fruit, and citrus.
