When is Moonshrimp Brewing open?

The beer window is open Tuesdays from Noon to 7pm, and Fridays from 2pm to 7pm, and we are also very happy to make appointments for those visiting from out of town or others who cannot make our regular beer window hours. Just send us a message and we will be happy to set up a time.

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 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.

Another great option to get our beer is directly from the beer window on Tuesdays and Firdays.

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?

Our seasonals now come in 500ml (16.9 oz) bottles! We used to do growler fills but with only being open one day per week decided that the beer was sitting around too long and discontinued them. 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 hand filled 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.

Does your beer contain shrimp?
