Moonshine report

shrimpbird | Aug 28, 2004 04:49 PM

Hi guys,
Went to Moonshine last night, and wanted to report back. It's at 317 Columbia. It's a very pleasant little place, when I heard that they serve their draft in mason jars, I was afraid it would be too cutsy or gimmicky, but I didn't find it to be that way at all. It's an oldtimey looking place, they left the ancient floorboards intact, stuff like that. Smallish place, with a small but pretty garden in the back. The real news is the prices. Canned beer (pabst, tecate, schmidt, etc.) are $1.50, or you can get a little bucket of 4 (any combination)on ice for $5.00. Very hard to beat that. As I am on a very severe budget these days, that's what brought me to Moonshine. In addition, the bartender, Greg, was super nice and friendly, which helps. They have a grill in the garden, and you can bring your own grillables. If there are going to be more than a few of you, let them know in advance, so they can reserve the grill for you. They have been open 3 months, and already have a decent (and non-trendy, yay!) crowd. When I was there the customers were probably mostly in their 30s. Check it out, it's a nice place to hang out. Oh, as for the jukebox: lots of country, Tom Petty, Bob Seger, that stuff, but also a little Iggy Pop, Blasters, and classic rock like stones and queen.
