Ecliptic Celebrates the Eclipse

Ecliptic Brewing may be the most naturally equipped brewery to celebrate the upcoming solar eclipse. As Ecliptic owner and Brewmaster John Harris named the brewery after his second passion of astronomy. As the total eclipse in Oregon approaches, it is only fitting that Harris’s space-themed brewery is celebrating the big day with an eclipse-themed beer and special events.

More from a press release:

Ecliptic Brewing has started to release their Chromosphere Blonde Ale, brewed for the solar eclipse, in to their Oregon and Washington markets.  The beer style was inspired by the color of the sun and the desire to have a sessionable ale to drink while experiencing the eclipse on August 21, 2017.

In addition to the beer, Ecliptic will be taking part in and hosting several eclipse themed events, detailed below.

“This day has been one that I have been thinking about for a long time and having a beer for the day was of huge importance to me,” said Harris.  “The can design (done by Senior Art Director at Sasquatch Agency, Sean Haggerty) honors the event and the beer inside just as I had hoped and I can’t wait for you all to drink it while watching the eclipse.”
