For a limited time this holiday season, Blue Moon Brewing Company is swapping its traditional orange garnish and replacing it with something just as sweet: pie.

The brand has partnered with mini baked goods queen and founder of Baked by Melissa, Melissa Ben-Ishay, on Blue Moon Pie Pints for the holidays. Ben-Ishay worked with Blue Moon’s team of brewmasters to craft three premium pie recipes created to perfectly pair with Blue Moon Brewing Co.’s family of beers: Blue Moon, Blue Moon LightSky and Moon Haze.

“Blue Moon’s orange wheel garnish is so iconic it would take something special for us to even consider replacing it,” says Leah Bowman, associate marketing manager at Molson Coors Beverage Company. “Our ambition is to be the brighter brewing company, so we knew we needed to create something that was both fun and unexpected as well as perfectly paired to the flavors that make our beer special. As a leader in the mini baked goods space, Melissa Ben-Ishay was the perfect fit to create mini seasonal pie pints recipes that not only pair with each beer, but elevate the table and palate alike.”

The three pint-sized pie recipes include:

  • Blue Moon - Spiced Citrus Pumpkin Pie: This pie incorporates dashes of coriander and orange zest that complement the subtle sweetness and bright, citrus aroma of Belgian White.
  • Blue Moon LightSky - Tropic Sky Pie: This pie is packed with a mango and pineapple custard filling that complements the surprising and refreshing flavors of LightSky Citrus Wheat and Tropical Wheat.
  • Moon Haze - Coconut Citrus Pie: This pie has a light coconut filling with juicy oranges as the perfect companion to this heartier Hazy Pale Ale.

“Whenever I come up with a new cupcake flavor or write a new recipe, I’m focused on getting the perfect bite. With the Blue Moon Pie Pints, you get the perfect bite and sip!” says Melissa Ben-Ishay. “As a long-time fan of Blue Moon, I was thrilled to work alongside their brewmasters to create recipes that complemented some of my favorite beers. These Pie Pints add such fun and festive flair to any holiday table this season.”

Now through Friday, November 11, consumers can purchase a limited quantity of Blue Moon Pie Pints three-packs per day at Blue Moon’s special website. Every Blue Moon Pie Pint is baked fresh by the bakers at Brooklyn-based bakery Pie Corps.
