Hopstories: Ecliptic Brewing

December 21, 2016 (Updated December 22, 2016)

John Harris, owner of Ecliptic Brewing, has been making beer for more than 30 years for some of the most recognizable breweries in the state and country, but in 2014 he opened his own brewery to brew out-of-this-world beer on planet Earth. Even though he has brewed for other breweries, his beers all have a unique taste that isn’t similar to the beers of his past breweries.

“If you can’t find a way to get another twist on a hop or a malt, then maybe you shouldn’t be a brewer,” he says.

While the focus of most breweries is on the beer, John wanted to create a brewery for foodies and mentioned that people come in just for the food and don’t even get a beer. Both the beer and food changes seasonally, which adds interest for regulars and employees alike.
