Moondance Magic Brews

Phil Moore's brew story begins with a Welsh Corgi he and his wife adopted as a pet. But a dog who answers to "Barley" quickly became a top dog, officially known as "Champion Dalarno Moondance Magic Brew." Barley has won three 5-point majors and earned his championship at Pembroke Nationals in Portland, Oregon in 2002. And he's one well-traveled pooch. As his proud owner reports, "Barley swam in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans in the same month, walked Pickett's Charge at Gettysburg, hiked part of the Appalachian Trail, and peed on the Gateway Arch in St. Louis." A chance few of us get in a lifetime!

With such a legend in the house, no wonder Phil named his brewery after Barley. When it came time to create a logo, Phil contacted his friend and famed Corgi Artist Art Smith (corgiart.com). Inspired by Barley's enjoyment of frogging by the pond, Art created this enchanting logo...

 ...now on a bottle cap!

Keeping with the theme, Phil pairs some other great Corgi labels with his logo.

While not quite as famous as Barley, Phil Moore is also a champion, having won several best in shows for his brews, and he was even one of four finalists in Sam Adams's Longshot Homebrew Competition in 2011. Apparently, a corgi and a brewer is a winning combination.
