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.

They have moved their homebrew shop to another building. This place is has now become a complete restaurant/tavern with tables, great atmosphere, and an extended bar. They now have a full kitchen too, with a great menu and lots of new beers (seasonals).

Ahh, Silver Moon. One of the newest microbreweries is Bend, they offer 5 or so of their beers ontap. They have seasonals sometimes too.
Decor is very laid back and comfortable. Rows of rare/antique beer bottles and growlers line the walls. They have a FREE pool table, a poker (or scrabble!) table in the corner, comforable family seating. Oh, and it's Non-smoking.
Their normal selection of beer is: Hound's Tooth Amber, Bridge Creek Pilsner, High Plains Heffe, Snake Bite Porter, Badlands Bitter, Hop Knob IPA.
I recommend getting a sampler (so you can taste them all) and when you pick one you all like, get a pitcher for your group!
Monday is locals night, $2 pints, woot!
They've got good food, I recommend the pulled pork nachos, any of their sandwiches, or any daily special.
Live Music every Wednesday and Saturday. Pick of a copy of the free weekly indy newspaper "The Source" somewhere in town to see who's playing at Silver Moon this week. Its usually decent local bands.
Lots of locals here most of the week. If your from out of town, this place is really inviting, and you'll get a good taste of the local flavor. I'd recommend this over Deschutes if you don't have time for both.

As others have said Silver Moon is more of a straight up bar atmosphere. They do allow minors in there until a certain time of night then it is no minors allowed. The atmosphere isn't great in my opinion, but it's not bad either. Then again I haven't been in there when they have a band playing, which is pretty frequent I hear.
The quality of their beer is pretty good, seems like some of the batches vary, but it is usually pretty tasty. Their ESB always seems to be top notch.
The service is great. We had like 15 people last time I went in, and the waitress was always there asking if we needed refills. The food was also brought to our table pretty quickly considering we ordered four giant pizzas.
The food is awesome. Their BBQ pizza is outstanding, I couldn't get enough of it. Have yet to try any of their other stuff, but the pizza is good for sure.
The prices are great, they have cheaper pints than most brewpubs and their growler fills are only $8 if you have the glass, or $9.50-11 for seasonal/specials last time I was there. Those are hard prices to beat for a growler.
Pretty decent place overall. Would like to go back and try some of their other food sometime.

I recently made my second visit to Silver Moon and came away impressed again. With a feel more like a neighborhood bar than a "typical" brewpub, I was right at home. It seems as if they are constantly working on and upgrading their space. It seemed a bit cleaner and more organized than before and some very nice murals have been painted on the walls to give the room a bigger feel that it actually is.
The quality of the beer and service were both very good, the bartender was busy (she was working the whole front of the house alone and the place seemed about half full) bit still had time to answer some questions and joke around a bit. The two beers I had were very good, as was the taster of a third, and I bought a few bottles to go. They had a nice variety of styles, you'll find something you'll like.
I didn't eat, but the food looked good and was reasonably priced. I look forward to a chance to visit when I'll have more than 14 hours in town and can spend some time here. If you hit Bend, Silver Moon is a must hit.
