For my money, MUW has perhaps the most consistent high quality lineup of beers in Victoria. Not flashy beers, not wacky fruity beers, not high alcohol beer bombs -- just good well balanced beers. And my veggie burger was good too -- it's steep at $13 but tasty and lots of above average fries. Good friendly service.

Now for the downside of MUW: the room itself is boring and completely uninspiring, like a pub from the early 80s. No patio, no window seats but then again would you really want to look at the industrial area surrounding the pub?

For me, I'll seek out their beers at other pubs or in the bottle.

A note to indicate that the Moon Under Water is now under new ownership and the place is getting a makeover, beginning with the beer, which is now focused on German, rather than English styles (Weizenbock, Dunkel, Pilsner). These beers have been outstanding so far and there are often highly unusual casks on offer each Wednesday. Brewer Clay Potter got his degree in Edinburgh and has returned home to Victoria along with his fiancée Chelsea - they are very enthusiastic and have lots of plans to liven the place up. Now open Sundays as well - definitely worth a visit.
