Moon Under Water: Victoria's latest brewpub

Victoria will have its 4th brewpub soon, with a bit of luck. How do I know? Because I interviewed the good people who are preparing to open The Moon Under Water and wrote it up for local free paper Monday Magazine.

Here's a link to the article. They used my photo, but I took a few others. I see no reason to repeat the article here, so I'll just post the images. Enjoy.

  3. Perfect! if you are talking to them, please tell them a) that just a few weeks ago I was bemoaning the lack of a place to have a quiet pint (other than the Bent Mast) and fantasizing that if I ever opened a pub it would be called "The Peace and Quiet" - sounds like they are doing it), and b) the Morris dancers have been looking for a home base (we recently danced at the Crow and Gate, a perfect pub for the Morris) and this could be it. We dance, sing and drink beer, and would be happy to hear from them. I can be reached at . Trevor Hancock (Quicksbottom and Hollytreee Morris)

  4. I'll have to check it out next time I'm back in Victoria - always nice to have more options for a good pint. The bitter sounds promising.

    Ever since the Bent Mast stopped hosting the sessions we've been hoping to find another pub that would allow us to come and play some tunes, sing a few songs and have a pint while we do. Maybe our wish is going to come true? I wonder if the licensing will allow "patron participation" music? And the Island Thyme morris dancers would love to dance there too!

  6. The pics make it look like the brewhouse is being set up in a tv studio! What's next? "Masterbrewer" on channel 10? Looks great though - good luck guys.
