Ponysaurus Brewing, Durham

In this new episode of the NCBeerBuzz we visit with Keil Jansen, the brewer, who along with his partners are opening the newest Durham brewery called Ponysaurus Brewing Co. on the premises of The Cookery at 1101 West Chapel Hill Street. They say they will be “brewing the beers beer would drink if beer could drink beer.” They also write that “Ponysaurus Brewing Co. is a forward-thinking, backward-tasting brewery … creating beers that are meant to be savored, appreciated, contemplated, philosophized, studied, nuzzled, and mindfully guzzled.” As for that name? Jansen says “I was having a hard time deciding whether the totem should be a pony or a dinosaur. I decided that I didn’t need to decide. They’re both just beautiful, magical animals.”
