Each month we will be looking up to the moon and seeing how our current experiences stand in its wake.
March’s full moon is dubbed the Worm Moon, bit gross, but it makes sense as this is when the earthworms return to the topsoil inviting robins and other birds to feed, a real sign of Spring.
Keen gardeners amongst you have probably already sowed some seedlings for this year’s green-thumbed plans.
The seeds for our brewery a well and truly sprouting. The unit is looking less and less like a building site and our brew kit is on a boat. Now we just have to stop ourselves watching it on a live tracker for five weeks.
We have new bright, sunny days and a roadmap with a glimmer of hope. We’re excited to soon be brewing and sharing our beers with you, it’s been a long time coming.
We’re looking forward to opening our taproom doors and inviting you into what we want to be a welcoming space in the Leith community. Most of all, we’re looking forward to becoming a true part of the Leith community.
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 Worm Moon will grace our skies on Sunday 28th March.
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.
