There's just enough caramel sweetness to balance the hop flavors, showcasing the beautiful varieties of hops grown in the Northwest.
  • BURNSIDE BREWING - Other IPA 70 IBU 7.0% - The Other IPA utilizes copious amounts of Meridian, Mosaic, and Amarillo’s, some of our favorite hop varietals.

These characters are delicately balanced by a touch of malt sweetness from the honey malt used in this beer. Complex in character, distinct in taste.
  • PORTLAND U-BREW & PUB Grapefruit IPA 75 IBU 6.40%- Brewed with wheat and Cascae/Centennial hops, American ale yeast. All natural raw fruit added

  • STORMBREAKER BREWING - Triple Double IPA 90 IBU 8.50%
  • UPTOWN MARKET BREWING Hero IPA 50 IBU 6.00% - Straight out of the Uptown Brewery, this IPA is simply too fresh to inspire a hero-worthy description. Here’s all you need to know: Brewed with a Pale Malt from Chile through a 90-minute boil, the Hero is well-bittered with Ella Hops from Australia, and Orbit hops from New Zealand for aromatics.

PORTERS & STOUTS
  • FOTM BREWING CO. - Electric Mud 30 IBU 6.60% - Chocolate Oatmeal Stout. "Well you know when I plug into your socket, I can charge you like no one else can." - Muddy Waters
  • NATIAN BREWERY - McGuinness 9.20% - Imperial Milk Stout aged on Kahlua soaked oak. More of a smooth stout with a rich dark depth rather than boozy. This beer utilizes more chocolate malt than roasted barley which helps pronounce the smooth/silky qualities of a milk stout. The more this beer ages, the more the Kahlua soaked oak develops a slight vanilla flavor to compliment the roasty/chocolate profile.
  • PINTS BREWING - Red Velvet Cake 45 IBU 6.7%

SPECIAL BEERS
  • DESCHUTES - Cyclist Radler 7 IBUS 3.8% - Traditionally known as a Radler in Germany this beer is a mix of our German Hefeweizen and Lemonade to create a deliciously light and refreshing beer.
  • EX NOVO - Old Ex 25 IBU 7.5 - Malt Liquor. The old American classic – strong adjunct ale crafted in PDX.
  • GIGANTIC BREWING - Ume Umai 7.50% - Plum & Black Rice Beer. Inspired by the Japanese flavor palette, we combined plums, black rice and pilsner malt to make a unique beer experience. Brewed “dry” in the Asian manner, and soured in the kettle to give just a hint of tartness, Ume Umai is fruity, yet earthy and above all refreshing and delicious.
  • OLD TOWN BREWING CO. - C.R.E.A.M. Get the money 30 IBU 5.00% - This pre-prohibition cream ale is what your great-grandparents would have drank at the turn of the 20th century. It is a lighter straw colored beer with a slightly sweet aroma. The flavor has a medium bitterness from the Santiam hops and finishes with a moderate malt sweetness. 
  • STORMBREAKER BREWING - Red Storm Rider 63 IBU 7.60% - We teamed up with the awesome brewers at WILD RIDE BREWING to create this Imperial Red aged for over 3 months in Bull Run bourbon barrels just for this awesome new festival. Aromas of oak and toffee, with notes of chocolate, lend way to extenuated caramel flavors with a smooth bourbon finish. Here’s to you Portland!

CIDERS & WINE


  • CIDER RIOT! - Everybody Pogo - Hoppy cider
  • CIDER RIOT! - Never Give an Inch - Oregon blackberry cider
  • COOPERS HALL - Rose 12.90%
  • COOPERS HALL - Sangria 13.00%

  • SASQUATCH BREWERY - Berry Pie 6.85% - North West apples and blueberries are used to give this semi-dry cider a refreshing twist of happiness in a glass.

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.
