Launchdown | Supermoon Brewing Co.

Supermoon began when Rob Brennan moved back to Milwaukee from Chicago. You might recognize Rob (as I did) from his time at Penrose Brewing in Geneva, IL. He helped start the brewery, acting as the sales manager for its first four years. Supermoon focuses on mixed fermentation farmhouse-style beers.

Beers are released when they’re ready and typically there’s a release every month or so. Launchdown is one of those releases.
