Sagittarius B2N is a collaboration brew between Portland Oregon Brewery Ecliptic Brewing and Milton Delaware Brewery Dogfish Head. Labeled a Saison Ale with Grapefruit, Lemon and Hibiscus, this brew is very tasty and a perfect choice now that the weather is getting warmer.

This collaboration brew came about when Dogfish head founder, Sam Calagione, sold John Harris of Ecliptic the brewhouse that they use today. In terms of where the name for the brew came from, it is probably best to let the Brewers themselves explain:

“Deep in the center of our Milky Way galaxy, some 26,000 light years away, lies a massive ethanol cloud designated Sagittarius B2N. While it is often imagined that alcohol is a creation of our earthly fermentation pursuits, Sagittarius B2N and other interstellar clouds like it prove that alcohol has existed long before we humans. So raise a glass to the cosmic brewery that is our universe.”

ABV: 7%

IBU: 36

Appearance: A very pretty golden color that has a creamy small head, leaves a small amount of lacing as you drink it

Aroma: The Sagittarius has a mild hoppy aroma with hints of grapefruit, no super strong aromas

Taste: A true Saison, light and hoppy, just enough bitterness to know that hops are there but also wonderfully combined with grapefruit, lemon and hibiscus. Crisp and clean finish, a great beer to crack open now that the weather is getting warmer

Mouthfeel: Lightly to moderately carbonated. Suits it well, gives it a crisp and clean taste, not too bitter and has a nice refreshing aftertaste

Overall: A really solid Saison collaboration by Ecliptic and Dogfish Head. Solid amount of flavor without being too powerful, just the right amount of bitterness with a nice floral taste to complement it. Great beer to drink during the summer months at the beach and share with friends. Something here for everyone! Cheers!

PR / Marketing Intern

I am a sports fanatic, music lover, outdoor enthusiast and beer advocate born and raised in sunny San Diego, CA. While I am not out exploring San Diego’s craft beer scene, I can be found hanging out at the beach with friends or attending southern California’s many live music events. My passion for craft beer was inherited from my father while home brewing together in their garage. I continued to share his passion for craft beer with friends while attending college in Los Angeles, where I was able to explore the craft beer scene outside of San Diego. In the future, I hope to be involved in Marketing/ Event Planning for the craft beer industry so I can spread my love and passion for beer with the larger San Diego community. I am an avid sports fan and can be seen sharing a pint with other aliens at local Padre and Charger games!
