About company

The original Moor Beer was founded in 1996 and ceased brewing operations in 2005. In 2007 Californian Justin Hawke bought the company and started it again with a fresh new approach by ditching some legacy beers, adding new ones, and reworking the rest. Justin combined influences from his native California and traditional techniques to develop Moor’s founding principles and a style that has become known as ‘Modern Real Ale’.

The brewery is now recognised as one of the world’s best, setting the benchmark for several beer styles, and in 2017 Justin was named British Guild of Beer Writers’ ‘Brewer of the Year. Moor Beer is also the leader of the unfined ’natural’ beer movement in the UK, meaning all beers (even keg) are naturally conditioned with live yeast.

In 2014 the Brewery moved from rural Somerset into the heart of Bristol and combined with a Brewery shop, tap room and recently launched Moor Vaults (taproom and barrel store) located in London on the ‘Bermondsey Beer Mile’.
