In this episode, Matt talks to Brewmaster John Legnard and Senior Marketing Manager Michell Ahbe, from Blue Moon Brewing Company. Blue Moon’s 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, their founder and head brewmaster 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.
Eventually, Blue Moon gained recognition, winning over drinkers and inspiring brewers across the country. In doing so, Blue Moon catapulted the craft movement forward, helping to shape the modern American beer scene. Now, over 20 years later, Blue Moon is still the #1 craft in the US* and is now also delighting consumers in 25+ countries globally.
