This summer, a once-in-a-lifetime eclipse will travel through Oregon. In anticipation of this momentous act of nature, and in celebration of Portland Monthly's Beers of Summer feature, 600+ lovers of outer space and beer came to The Redd for Total Brewclipse PDX. This out-of-this world party featured our editors’ favorite brews, Reyka Vodka's Moon-inspired cocktail, Olympia Provisions, 1927 S'mores, tarot readings by Erin Aquarian, horoscope readings by Julia Bray, and a cozy fire pit. After the sun set, a psychedelic light show lit up The Redd, while Norman and DJ Tim Blanchard helped the crowd find a whole lot of soul and funk. OMSI inspired this starstruck crowd with a real eclipse education, and the raffle proceeds benefited the crowdfunding campaign to refurbish their beloved Planetarium.
