Ecliptic Brewing‘s John Harris has yet another collaboration beer in the wings, or should I say in space, as his latest is inspired by an astronomer and the Kuiper Belt object. Kuiper Porter will be released this Tuesday, 8/19, at Ecliptic Brewing.
KUIPER PORTER This beer is a collaboration between Ecliptic and Steve Gammage brewmaster of Breweri j Rodenberg who makes Bronkhorster beers in the Netherlands. Steve was over for the Oregon Brewers Festival and spent 2 days working with us. Kuiper was a famous Dutch Astronomer known for discovering the Kuiper belt objects. Brewed with roast barley and carafa malts to give a rich roast flavor. Pale and Dark Munich Malts add a nice creaminess. Experimental hop ADHA 527 add a nice classic hop aroma with hints of citrus. This porter drinks smooth.
