Moon Under Water Brewery & Pub

Our last brewery visit of the trip was at Moon Under Water. I’ve seen their bottles at the liquor store and like the design but it’s a mixed bag when it comes to how their beers taste.

We dropped in on a Monday (around 3:45pm). It wasn’t busy and oddly, their beer pub was closed (even though there were people inside). We went informed to go to the restaurant instead. Service was brutal; our waitress messed up our flight and didn’t bother to tell us anything about the beers that we had ordered. We weren’t impressed.

There were 11 beers on tap. For food, the menu consists of pub favourites, soup & salad, appies, sandwiches, rice bowls (er…) and tacos. Click here (1, 2, 3 and 4).

Monday specials was $5.00 pints all day/night and a bunch of appies on special. Flight options were half moon ($8.50 for 4) or full moon ($10.50 for 6).

Our friends got a flight of creepy Uncle dunkel (dark lager), hip as funk (farmhouse IPA), darkside and azacca kettle sour. The only one I liked was the kettle sour. The rest were bland and mundane.

Don’t waste your time and money at MUW. Make the short trip over to any of the other nearby breweries: Île Sauvage, Driftwood and Hoyne come to mind.
