Ecliptic Brewing 5 Beers for 5 Years: Bell’s Brewery

In celebration of their fifth year traveling round the sun, Ecliptic Brewing created the Cosmic Collaboration series, “5 Beers for 5 Years,” in which the Portland, Oregon brewery brews celestial concoctions with five other esteemed breweries. Peaks and Pints hosted the first three collaborations — Brooklyn Brewery in April and Firestone Walker in May and Breakside Brewery in July. We’re opening the pod bay door again for Ecliptic’s fourth Cosmic Collaborator, Bell’s Brewery of Comstock, Michigan, at 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 30.

Ecliptic Brewing owner and brewmaster, John Harris, worked with Bell’s founder Larry Bell to create the Juicy IPA (8.5%) brewed with 2- row, Pale and Munich malts, along with Oregon Strata hops and two hop varieties from New Zealand — Galaxy and Taiheke — but it’s the beer making process that really brings out the unique flavor. Harris, Bell, and Bell’s director of operations, John Mallett, added ice to the whirlpool to lower the temperature, which helps reduce bitterness and bring out the hops’ flavors. This results in a big, bright and juicy IPA.
