Moon Gazer ales are produced at the Norfolk Brewhouse. Owned and run by Rachel and David Holliday – a couple with a passion for crafting distinctive, high-quality beers – this multi-award-winning brewery has gained a strong reputation for high quality and and craft lagers.
Its rural setting in North Norfolk – right in the heart of the country’s finest malting barley region – is just the start.
Team Moon Gazer make the most of all that is around them; chalk-filtered water from the brewery’s own well and Norfolk’s finest malting barley. Incidentally, they feed the brewing grains to some very grateful cows.
Even the names of the beers – Moon Gazer Ale and StubbleStag premium lager, Bouchart, Dewhopper, Jigfoot, Jumper, Nibbler, Jackalope and Pintail – were inspired by the wildlife around them, reflecting as they do the stunning sight of wild hares transfixed by the moon. All of the breweries beer’s names are linked in some way to the name, history or mystery of a hare.
All great stuff, but add to this some modern thinking, modern hop varieties, nifty innovation and some very up-to-date brewing kit and you get hand-crafted beers which ensure that every drop is as good as the last.
Moon Gazer is the proud recipient of over 20 Society of Independent Brewers and CAMRA awards as well as a host of business and community awards.
