This event has passed.


It's time for a STAR PARTY! Ecliptic Brewing has teamed up with OMSI to deliver you an evening of delicious food, cold beer and a celestial viewing of the starry night sky above. Join OMSI’s Director of Space Science Education, Jim Todd, as he leads us through an educational presentation of the cosmic realm. Keep an eye out for Ecliptic’s owner and fellow astronomy fan, John Harris, too! Get ready to #PourSomeSpaceInYourFace.

Here’s how it works:

  • Secure your spot by purchasing a table ticket. There are tickets that hold up to 6 people per table or 2 people per table. This table ticket allows up to 6 or 2 people of all ages in your party, and you will all be seated together. You do not need to purchase a ticket for each person. Table ticket also includes a free appetizer [goat cheese crositini with whipped feta spread and olive tapenade, or miso-beet spread (for vegan)] for the table!
  • You may arrive beginning at 6:30pm. Show starts at about 7:30pm and will last approximately 90 minutes, or slightly longer. BYO binoculars, and feel free to download star-viewing apps like SkyView Lite and Google Sky Free! 
  • Food and drinks are available for sale throughout the evening from our event dining menu. These include: Fried Russets, Soup, Delicata Squash Fritters, Caesar Salad, Fall Salad, Ecliptic Burger, Classic Burger, Chicken Philly, Grilled Cheese. Kids menu also available.
