Ecliptic Brewing825 N Cook St, Portland, Oregon, 97221
Ecliptic Brewing is a venture from John Harris, an Oregon beer icon whose background is steeped in the stateâ€™s rich craft brewing history. John started as a brewer at McMenamins in 1986 before moving on to Deschutes Brewery where he created the recipes for beers such as Mirror Pond Pale Ale, Black Butte Porter, and Obsidian Stout. From there John went to work at Full Sail Brewing and in 2013 he opened Ecliptic Brewing. The name Ecliptic unites Harrisâ€™ two passions: brewing and astronomy, and as such, the brewery celebrates the Earthâ€™s yearly journey around the sun through both its beer and restaurant menus. Harrisâ€™ signature beers include Ecliptic Brewing Starburst IPA, Capella Porter, Carina Peach Sour Ale, and Phaser Hazy IPA.
