Ecliptic Brewing is set to launch their new monthly prix fixe dinner called the Lunation Dinner Series. The dinner will take place the first Tuesday of every month beginning in February. This means that the first dinner will take place on February 4th at 6:30pm.
When Ecliptic Brewing opened their doors last fall, Brewer/Owner John Harris, emphasized the importance of food and its relationship to beer and more importantly its freshness based on the season that we are currently in. The term lunation means the average time for one lunar cycle, or the amount of time from one new moon to the next, and each dinner will be held in accordance on the first Tuesday of every month. The series will feature seasonal ingredients and hand-picked beer pairings while using the talents of Ecliptic’s renowned brewmaster, John Harris, and Executive Chef Michael Molitor.
Both Harris and Chef Molitor will be heavily involved in each dinner. The menu and beer pairings will be chosen collaboratively and with careful consideration. All Lunation dinners will feature a full course and pairing walk-through with both chef and brewmaster. As with everything at Ecliptic, the Lunation Dinner Series will evolve month-after-month and with the seasons.
“We want to raise the bar on what people expect from a brewery,” said Bryan Deckert, general manager of Ecliptic Brewing. “Each dinner will be thoughtfully put together and push the limits of creativity. This will not be your average brewmaster’s dinner.”
