The Blue Moon story
Blue Moon® Belgian White Belgian-Style Wheat Ale was born in Denver’s baseball stadium, Coors Field, in 1995. For more than 20 years, the Sandlot brewery provided their team of brewers an opportunity to create and share new beers with fans around the world from Denver.
In the summer of 2016, Blue Moon brought the same creativity and passion for beer to their new state-of-the-art brewery and restaurant in Denver’s RiNo District. Since then they have been brewing fan favorites (old and new), and experimenting with new and unique ingredients on their pilot brewing system.
Blue Moon is proudly brewed at the Sandlot, at the RiNo Brewery, and at breweries throughout the world.
How was Blue Moon Belgian White Belgian-Style Wheat Ale created?
Our story begins in the Sandlot Brewery at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado, at the beginning of the 1995 baseball season. After earning his Ph.D. in brewing from the University of Brussels, our founder Keith Villa returned stateside with the goal of brewing well-crafted beers inspired by Belgian styles, with a refreshing twist. Amongst the many beers one fan favorite emerged, in true baseball fashion they called it ‘Bellyslide Wit’. Someone said, “A beer this good only comes around once in a blue moon,” and thus Blue Moon® Belgian White Belgian-Style Wheat Ale was born.
