The original Moor Beer started brewing in 1996 and shut in 2005. In 2007 Californian Justin Hawke bought the company and reinvigorated life into the old brewery. The current Moor Beer is entirely different to the original. The brewery is now recognised as one of world’s best, setting the benchmark for several beer styles. Moor Beer is also the leader of the unfined ’natural’ beer movement in the UK. All beers (even keg & cask) are naturally conditioned with live yeast. In 2014 the Brewery moved from Somerset into Bristol.
Beer is about flavour, drinkability and enjoyment. They take the German naturally hazy approach, combine it with American flavour-forward techniques as well as the British tradition of secondary refermentation to craft uniquely dynamic, sessionable beers. Stemming from their Californian roots, their beers are full flavoured, often hoppy, but always drinkable. This comes from their use of British floor malted barley, select hops from around the world and a laser focus on quality at their in-house laboratory.
