Silver Moon is one of the original Bend breweries, established in 2001 by Tyler Reichert in the back room of the Brew Shop on a one-barrel system. That system was originally a brew-on-premise setup that Reichert purchased and picked up from Bandon, Oregon, and the harrowing tale of driving it all over the mountain pass in the dead of winter is recounted in the book.
The Moon moved to its current location in 2004, and has had a number of talented brewers over the years, including Tyler West, Brett Thomas, and currently Jeff Schauland. It also developed the reputation of being a great local music venue, quirky and homey and comfortable with a great locals vibe.
Silver Moon has been a great supporter of both the craft beer scene and the book, so come on down tonight, meet me and get a book signed!
