Meantime Brew Master, Alastair Hook, has spent 20 years planning the quintessential English lager. His reasoning is simple.The great European lager brewers use very soft water and neutral yeasts to ensure that only the flavours of their locally grown malt and hops come to the fore. East Anglia is home to the world’s finest malting barley and Kent is home to some of the world’s best hops. Midway between the two, London is ideally placed to bring them together in a straightforward, clean, long-matured, unpasteurised lager, where all you can taste is malt and hop.
At Blue Moon Brewing Company, everything we do stems from our artistic approach to brewing beer. Our philosophy is simple, we take great, classic styles and make them even better by adding unique twists. It's been like that since we added our first twist back in 1995 in Denver, Colorado.
