Each month we will be looking up to the moon and seeing how our current experiences stand in its wake.
April’s full moon is dubbed the Pink Moon after the springtime blooms. A wildflower native to eastern North America inspired the name, ‘moss pink’ blooms this time each year.
In Edinburgh, we’re seeing bluebells, hyacinths, tulips and cherry blossoms blooming across the city.
By the time the Pink Moon is high in the sky, our brewery will be ready to bloom with our brew kit finally being on site.
We’ll be looking up to the next full moon with a pint of our own beer in hand.
Why do moons have names? “The early Native Americans didn’t record time using months of the Julian or Gregorian calendar. Instead, tribes gave each full moon a nickname to keep track of the seasons and lunar months.” – The Telegraph
The Pink Moon will grace our skies on Tuesday 27th April.
BREWING BY THE MOON
Farmers grow crops, including hops and barley, by cycles of the moon, the tides are in harmony with the moon and these ingredients make our beer and our beer reflects their qualities.
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.
