Created in partnership with Melissa Ben-IshayBlue Moon Pie Pints are designed to garnish and pair perfectly with three of the brand’s favorite beers.
CHICAGO, November 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — For the past 27 years, Blue Moon has been synonymous with its signature orange wheel trim as a bright beacon that creates a one-of-a-kind drinking experience. But for a limited time this holiday season, Blue Moon Brewing Company is swapping out its orange filling and replacing it with the only thing sweet enough to replace it: pie. Enter Blue Moon Pie Pints; because the perfect holiday drink deserves the perfect holiday treat.
Blue Moon Brewing Co. has teamed up with internet sensation and mini bakery queen, Melissa Ben-Ishay to create a truly unique culinary masterpiece for the holiday season, Blue Moon Pie Pints. Melissa worked with Blue Moon’s team of brewmasters to create three premium pie recipes created to pair perfectly with beloved members of the Blue Moon Brewing Co. beer family: the iconic Blue Moon , Blue Moon Light Sky and Moon Haze.
“Blue Moon’s orange wheel trim is so iconic that we would need something special to even consider replacing it,” said Lea Bowman, Deputy Director of Marketing at Molson Coors Beverage Company. “Our ambition is to be the brightest beer company, so we knew we had to create something that was both fun and unexpected, as well as perfectly matching the flavors that make our beer special. As a leader in the field mini baked goods, Melissa Ben-Ishay was the perfect solution for creating seasonal mini pint pie recipes that not only pair with every beer, but enhance the table and the palate. »
Beer and pie are two party staples at every Friendsgiving and Thanksgiving table, but with Blue Moon Pie Pints, you can have your pie…and sip on it! Melissa has created three delicious pint-sized pie recipes to complement and accompany the brewery’s three main beer families:
- Blue Moon – Citrus Spiced Pumpkin Pie: Blue Moon Belgian White Belgian-Style Wheat Ale, the beer brewed with Valence orange zest and coriander pair best with the most iconic of pies. Citrus Pumpkin Spice Pie is a classic pumpkin pie with a zesty twist. This tart incorporates hints of coriander and orange zest that complement the subtle sweetness and bright citrus aroma of Belgian White.
- Blue Moon LightSky – Tropic Sky Pie: LightSky is a light wheat beer, brewed with real citrus zest for a lighter and more exceptional taste. The Tropic Sky Pie is packed with a delicious mango and pineapple filling that complements the surprising and refreshing flavors of LightSky Citrus Wheat and Tropical Wheat.
- Moon Haze – Coconut Citrus Pie: Moon Haze is a juicy hazy beer with bold tropical coconut flavors and a heavy tropical citrus aroma. The sweet, bright citrus and tropical coconut of Coconut Citrus Pie balances the hopping of Moon Haze, while rounding out the juicy flavor profile. A light coconut filling with juicy oranges is the perfect companion to this heartier Hazy Pale Ale.
“Every time I come up with a new cupcake flavor or write a new recipe, I focus on getting the perfect bite. With Blue Moon Pie Pints, you get the perfect bite and sip!” said Melissa Ben-Ishay, CEO and co-founder of Baked by Melissa. “As a lifelong Blue Moon fan, I was thrilled to work alongside their brewmasters to create recipes that complemented some of my favorite beers. These Pie Pints add a fun and festive touch to any any festive table this season.”

About Blue Moon

Our founder and head brewer imagined Blue Moon while living and learning to Belgium. The beer was first brewed at the Sandlot brewery in denver in 1995. Years later, we are still inspired by the people and places around us. Since our first creative twist in 1995 in denver, we continued to have fun experimenting and trying new styles for the enjoyment of our fans. Beyond its signature Belgian White Belgian-Style Wheat Ale, the Blue Moon family of brands also includes Blue Moon LightSky, a light and flavorful beer, and Moon Haze, the brand’s juicy take on a hazy pale ale.
