disclaimer: i first brewed this on 8/27/2011 and i have never liked bluemoon beers or anything really from BMC. I named this homebrew before i knew about the bluemoon clone thats also listed on here. Also this is my first post so i apologize for spelling errors and grammatical mishaps(/END)

This was my first blueberry beer. it is very simple and some friends and I thought it was very, VERY good. I made 2 different variations, the first being the better.

Let me know what you think if you decide to make it.
