John Harris's New Brewery: Ecliptic

Yesterday afternoon, in a fascinating location at the far northern end of Mississippi Avenue, John Harris (who? oh, come on, John Harris) unveiled the name of his new brewery--Ecliptic.  If you're looking south by southwest, you have a fantastic view of downtown and the Fremont Bridge.  Due south to south by southeast, you see a magnificent industrial tableau representative of the neighborhood that continues on for dozens of blocks through tangles of freeway and rail track.  The building itself is a huge and pretty modern warehouse (1976, according to Portland Maps) that will offer Harris tons to work with.  The name, as you'll hear, has a metaphoric component.  Everyone who knew the word "ecliptic" raise your hands.  (Mine's at my side.)

Below is his announcement captured with murky audio on my iphone, and below that some clearer photos.

The murky audio is accurate...just the way I remember the live talk. It would have been better if John had changed places with us. We would have gotten reverb from the wall.

Really excited for John's new venture! ...what a fantastic extension of the already-awesome 5th Quadrant!

I've tippled a couple with John in Hood River over the years and I'm very excited. I'll buy the first keg off his line!
