Ecliptic’s Moon Room Set to Open Next Week

Ecliptic Brewing will open its second location, the Moon Room, the first week of November. While the company has already been brewing beer in the Moon Room’s production facility, this will be the first time it will welcome guests into its new taproom in Southeast Portland.

Ecliptic is excited to show off the new taproom, which has undergone an extensive remodel, led by Terry Amundson with local architect firm, Koble Creative. It features a modern new bar top, custom made tables and a large mural adorning most of the walls. The space is darker and moodier than Ecliptic’s original “Mothership Brewery” in North Portland, as it aims to create an updated space vibe and “transport” guests (over 21) to the moon. The patio area accommodates up to 86 people, weather permitting.

The Moon Room will eventually feature an extensive tap list, as the draft system holds up to 30 handles. This allows for Moon Room exclusive beers, barrel-aged projects and more beer options from Ecliptic’s Cosmic Collaboration partners.

Besides beer, the Moon Room plans to present a sizeable gin-focused cocktail program – an idea born from Owner and Brewmaster John Harris during the pandemic, as he experimented at home with his favorite liquor. Says Harris, “Gin is a botanical paradise. We will aim to showcase our beer and also the world of gin- Martini, Negroni, and the understated Gin and Tonic, will all be elevated here at the Moon Room. Look for a nice list of gins and how different these classics can be interpreted, as well as modern gin cocktails.”

The Moon Room food trailer, which is stationed right outside of the building, is ready to provide a wide range of sandwich options to taproom guests. These sandwiches will include classic favorites, as well as unique options, and there will always be vegan entrees available. The menu will rotate every six weeks as it does at the Mothership Brewery and will include fresh, local and seasonal ingredients.

“All of us here at Ecliptic are excited to bring another pub experience to lead our cause in ‘Creating Joy in the Universe,” says Harris. “We can’t wait to show you our new space.”
