Meet the Maker: Moon Under Water

L to R: Clay Potter and family

L to R: Clay Potter and family

Meet: Clay Potter
Clay’s long-time passion for brewing led him to studying at University of Victoria for Biology & Chemistry and Heriot Watt University in Scotland for the Brewing & Distilling Master’s Program.

After mastering his knowledge, Clay was ready for the next step. With his family, he took over the Moon Under Water Brewery in 2012. Together they brought this establishment to the next level and it’s now a staple in Victoria.

Moon Flavours
Clay’s creations are influenced by his experience and education overseas, resulting in a wide range of core beers with European flare + a Canadian twist.

Beer Program
In 2014, Moon Brewery introduced two new programs that garnered success and excitement: a sour series featuring the beloved Copper Kettle Sour, and line of limited-release barrel-aged beers, such as The Crow’s Nest. These highly-sought after beers are small-batched and aged for 18 months.

Moon Distillery
In December 2017, Clay was ready for more growth and opened a distillery within the brewery. The Moon Distillery has recently launched their first wave of products, featuring Citrus Gin, Orange Vodka and Espresso Vodka, all made with local malts, fruits and botanicals.
