Moonwake means “the moon's reflection on a body of water”. This speaks to the brewery’s location on The Shore in Leith, Edinburgh, the importance of water as a brewing ingredient, and our beer's reflection of our collective experience.
Our beers reflect our wealth of experience and our discovery of brewing’s creativity. We brew with mindful intention on modern technology using quality ingredients. Precision brewed beer for easy enjoyment.
Our founders started their beer careers on opposite sides of the world, Vinny in Barcelona and Fin in Oxford. They bring over a decade of collective experience in brewing to Moonwake, for both of them brewing is their creative outlet.
Now with their first team members onboard, an impressive brew kit well on its way, and a brewery over a year in the making we’re almost ready to share our first beers with you.
We believe there is a beer out there for everyone,
We want to create an open, creative space and culture where we can brew impressive beers with precision for your easy enjoyment.

He’s constantly changing his mind on what his favourite styles are. For Wes, what’s in the glass depends heavily on the time and the place he’s in. He’s had some spectacular beers on his travels but in lockdown, the consistent favourite has been traditional German Lagers.
