You may remember we first wrote about Moonshrimp Brewing in January 2014 when it was supposed to open later that year. After that did not happen and updates stopped, I thought the Moonshrimp Brewing project was dead. I am happy to report that it’s not dead and is now legally producing and selling its kickstarter funded gluten-free beers by the bottle in Portland. The crew has also installed a beer window for walk-up purchases, which are bottles only for now, with the aim to be able to fill growlers and sell kegs in the future.
For hardcore gluten Nazis, Moonshrimp Brewing guarantees that there will be no wheat, barley, malt, or any other gluten anywhere near the brewery property, and further promises not to use oats or oat products, no gelatin or isinglass for clarification, no honey, and no food at all allowed near the brewery or bottling area ever. Moonshrimp’s main base ingredients are millet and beet sugar, with additional ingredients for each flavor.
