Silver moon, located on greenwood avenue seems to be the more 'hip' location as far as brewpubs in town.

As you walk inside, the feel is more of a lower class bar, decor is bland, atmosphere is lacking (although, maybe on a band night, it might be nicer) not much going on as far as the ambiance of the place.

Beer is where they make up for it a bit, some award winning regulars, and very interesting seasonals make it still a good location to go to. Food is something I did not try, but looked good as it came out of the kitchen. Service was friendly and happy to pour pints, and actually interested in conversation unlike many beer servers in town.

It will be somewhere I will go again, maybe on a night when a show is playing. Monday night is locals night, with cheaper pints.

Expectations were low heading in, but was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the beer. Pretty solid all around.

I stopped in and a had a few beers at Silver Moon Brewing on my recent pilgrimage to Bend. While I don't think it's a major destination brewery, it had all the hallmarks of a popular neighborhood brewpub.

In a lot of ways, it reminded me of a really nice dive bar. Monday Night Football on several TVs, plenty of regulars bellying up to the bar, and friendly, outgoing staff. Their selection was good, with 10 or 12 taps, although the beer was mostly OK and not particularly noteworthy. As a beer lover's destination, it's OK, but as a neighborhood pub with a great atmosphere, it's definitely a place to go.

Not a bad place at all, we called about 15 minutes before they closed ( at the time we did'nt know their times ), and the guy said they would close after we had drank our fill. Nice, that is pretty cool, Oregon again, it is all good.

Same guy waits on us that was on the phone, good bartender, service is all that, and the guy keeps you entertained if you wanted, and won't bother you if that is your thing.

I had the Bonecrusher, you should too. Nice hoppy, malty red ale, very well balanced and tasty, also tried the dark truth stout - not so much, should have got another Bonecrusher.

The bartender said they were starting some remodeling next week, so that could push the ratings here up a bit, I would come back, decent beer, decent service, and improving atmosphere, heck yah!

This was stop #32 for my wife and I on a 21-day pub-crawl from Michigan to N. CA and OR. We stopped here on a Tuesday afternoon to enjoy their beers. The pub building fronts on a busy street that has no curb parking, and an ugly chain link fence lines the street between the curb and the sidewalk which detracts from the building and even masks it a bit since the street is an underpass at that point in the block. A parking lot is in the rear of the building. The interior has a lot of black leather and chrome chairs/stools, which do not fit with a brewpub vibe. However, the brewing equipment is behind a glass wall, and that helps pick things back up.

It was a nice day so we ordered a sampler flight and sat outside. A few tables are located in the narrow area between the brewery and the neighboring building, plus a couple small tables are on the front sidewalk. There is no ‘beer garden ambience’ in either location. We ordered a sampler with 5 of the nine beers that were available. Each was brewed to style, and each of them received a score between a C+ and a B- in our grading system.

The beers were acceptable to justify a trip back here some day, but something about the ambiance was not to our liking, so it would not be at the top of our list for another visit.

Living in Bend, we have SO many breweries... It's nice to see one of the first breweries in town stepping up and producing some great beer. The new owners have really done a lot with this place and I'm excited to see how they grow in the future. Love the new bottles! Keep up the great work Silver Moon.
