Ecliptic Brewing is a venture from John Harris, an Oregon craft brewing icon. As a result of his efforts at McMenamins, Deschutes and Full Sail, craft beer lovers have been enjoying John’s beers for over thirty years. The name Ecliptic Brewing unites John’s two passions: brewing and astronomy. The ecliptic is earth’s yearly path around the sun, and we celebrate this journey through the seasons with the food and beer we make.
Ecliptic Brewing opened its North Portland brewery and “Mothership” restaurant in October of 2013. Here, we rotate our scratch-made menu every six weeks, always highlighting seasonal and local ingredients whenever possible. In November of 2021, we opened our second location – the Moon Room – in Southeast Portland, featuring both a full production facility and 21+ bar with our very own food truck.
Our brewhouses showcase multiple beer releases each year, ranging from modern and experimental brews to long standing favorites. And through it all, we respond to our customer’s desires and introduce them to new experiences that keep them coming back for more.
Flagship beers include Starburst IPA, Phaser IPA, Carina Peach Sour Ale, and Capella Porter. Our seasonal series changes four times a year and includes favorites such as Flamingo Planet Guava Blonde Ale and SunRay Juicy IPA. We also brew a selection of Special Releases, Cosmic Collaborations and draft-only beers from our pilot system.
You can find Ecliptic beers in restaurants and retail shops in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Colorado, North Carolina, Canada, and Japan.
