About Portland Beer Week
Portland Beer Week is a 10 day celebration of craft beer, dedicated to promoting Portland and its diverse craft beer culture. Portland Beer Week is a grassroots organization founded in 2011 as an annual city-wide event. Attendees of Portland Beer Week can expect to both be entertained and enlightened with creative beer pairing events, beer dinners with some of the city’s top chefs, seminars on subjects like barrel-aging and sour beers as well as festivals exploring styles such as the Rye Beer Fest and Portland Fruit Beer Festival. Each year, Portland Beer Fest also selects two breweries who collaborate to create the official annual Portland Beer Week beer available in limited quantities in bottles and kegs during beer week.
About Ecliptic Brewing
Ecliptic Brewing is a venture from John Harris, an Oregon beer icon whose background is steeped in the state’s rich craft brewing history. The name Ecliptic unites Harris’ two passions: brewing and astronomy, and as such, the brewery celebrates the Earth’s yearly journey around the sun through both its beer and restaurant menus. Executive chef Michael Molitor rotates his seasonally inspired menu every six weeks in accordance with the old world calendar. Harris’ signature beers include Spica Pilsner, Procyon Pale Ale, Phobos Extra Red Ale and Orbiter IPA. In 2014, Ecliptic Brewing was voted best brewpub by Northwest Brewing News readers, and the brewery’s Filament Winter IPA was named favorited winter ale by Oregon Beer Growler.
