Is Moonshrimp Brewing open?
YES WE ARE!
Our beer is now making its way out onto store shelves and restaurants. You can also come by the brewery on Tuesdays between noon and 7pm to pick some up from the Beer To Go Window for yourself, cards now accepted.
8428 SW 22nd ave Portland, for those looking for the brewery.
Where can I buy your beer?
Our beer is also available from a few grocery stores, bottle shops, and restaurants throughout the Portland area. If you have a store that would like to carry our beer we would love to hear from you. Please email [email protected] if you would like help finding a store near you that carries our beer or have any questions. Currently our beer is only available in stores in Oregon, outside of Oregon please see our online retailer HERE.
Another great option to get our beer is directly from the beer window on Tuesdays.
Moonshrimp? From the shape on the Moon?
Yes really. Just like the man on the moon, the Moonshrimp sits majestically above us all.
Do your beers taste like regular beer?
Pretty close. If our tasters (all of whom drink regular beer) don't pick ours over the competition Dan goes back to the drawing board and tries again until they do. Moonshrimp doesn't promise that they taste the exact same, but they do taste really good. On average when compared to traditional beers our beers are lighter in character with a bit of a cider taste to them depending on the style.
Do the beers only come in 22oz bottles? What about growler fills?
There are always going to be 3 beers available for growler fills at the beer window. We have a limited number of kegs available either directly to the public or for wholesale to bars/restaurants/tap houses. Other than that, yes it is just 22oz bottles.
Is this actually beer? According to the Reinheitsgebot...
The answer depends on who you ask and what you mean. According to the respected reinheitsgebot or German 'purity law' of 1516 all products of Moonshrimp Brewing are not beer as they contain products other then "barley, hops, and water" but then again, beers also have always contained yeast and so were never really in compliance with the letter of the law to begin with. The IRS certainly considers these brews to be beer.
Really it comes down to what you want. It looks like beer and tastes like beer and that is good enough for me. I hope it is good enough for you too.
