'Why bother making beer that's not delicious'

Santa Rosa-based Moonlight Brewing Company was created by Brian Hunt back in 1992. Twenty years later, still small, and local. So small, it doesn’t even have a tasting room, let alone a brewery tour. Brian brews about 1,000 barrels of beer per year, not much considering Sierra Nevada outputted nearly 850,000 barrels in 2011. Which is exactly what Brian intended for his brewery to be, micro, keeping the distribution within the Bay Area, selling beers in kegs exclusively. Thus making it almost impossible to find anywhere else in the country. Taste Terminal host, Jace Milstead caught up with the whimsical Brian Hunt at the Opening Celebration of San Francisco Beer Week and asked him about his philosophy on beer styles.

    I love hearing about small companies like this!  I’ve been making beer for quite some time, and am always interested in custom beer.  Any chance of distribution of Brian Hunt’s "Moonlight brew"  in the eastern states?
