The DW and I visited moon river last Tuesday night just prior to the a hanuted pub crawl. The decor in Moon River is average. Trendy little dining area with hardwood floors and tables and neo-trend lights. The square bar area is small with a limited number of taps. They have a few guest beers but they are short on selection if you're not into their house craft beers. The most unique beer of the night was their Rosemary IPA (which I could detect nary a hint of Rosemary in it).

The coolest part of the bar is the basement which is only used for overflow and private parties and the unfinished upstairs. It's brick and has a small bar of it's own, and we visited it as part of the ghost tour. The upstairs levels are unfinished and we were allowed to explore the second level a little bit. They do store their brewing supplies (pallets of malted barley, etc) and corny kegs on this level, but for the most part, it's unfurnished.

Our table in the dining room abutted the brew area and I was actually a little grossed out by the lack of cleanliness around the mash tuns and the conicals. Spotless inside (as it should be) but there was no lack of wort spillage and mulm buildup on the outside of the vessils. As a brewer myself, I know the most important aspect of any brewing is cleanliness, and if I were their head brewer, i'd scrub the place floor to ceiling and then spray everything down in idophor.

Generally uses the supposed novelty of being a brewpub to draw in tourists because the beer and food are average. Had the pale ale, which was fairly flavorless and lacked body. The porter is better. If you are looking for good beer, I'd recommend going elsewhere.

Great location within walking distance of the riverfront. Tried the Captain's Porter and the Slovannah Pale Ale, along with a burger and onion rings, all very good. Noted with amusement some of the "tourists" who came in, bought pints, and left after barely tasting them-BMC drinkers apparently. The seasonal Tater Ale (sweet potato as opposed to the ubiquitous pumpkin ales prevalent this time of year) was a perfect finish to lunch.

Good brew pub. Been there several times. Service isn't as genuinely friendly as most pubs. Decent selection of craft brews. Food was good.
I had a burger, my wife had shrimp creole which was good but way too spicey. All in all it is worth the price.
