About Blue Moon Brewing Company — Blue Moon Brewing Company takes pride in the quality and creativity of its beers and embraces the process it takes to get there. Our founder and head brewmaster dreamt up Blue Moon while living and learning in Belgium. The beer was first brewed at the Sandlot Brewery in Denver in 1995. Years later, we still pull inspiration from the people and places around us. Since our first creative twist in 1995 in Denver, we have continued to have fun experimenting and trying out new styles for our fans to enjoy. Beyond its signature White Belgian-Style Wheat Ale, the Blue Moon family of brands also includes Blue Moon LightSky, a flavorful, light beer, and Moon Haze, the brand’s juicy take on a hazy pale ale. At Blue Moon Brewing Company, something’s always brewing. More information is available
