Consuming the Craft

Jun 3, 2019

Eric Lebsack is the Seller Master of Ponysaurus Brewing Company. Ponysaurus is a 6,000 square-foot brewery with locations in Asheville, Charlotte, Wilmington, Greensboro, Raleigh, and Durham. They are known as a forward-thinking, backward-tasting brewery dedicated to creating a beer designed to be savored and appreciated.


Eric joins me today for a double dose of Booze Clues to discuss the new products Ponysaurus plans to release into the marketplace. He explains why it’s crucial for brewers to get the flavor of new beers ‘just right’ before they hit the market and the evolution of your senses as a craft brew drinker. We also discuss rum-injected Boston butts, using wormwood in your brewing recipes, and how distilleries get that interesting green color in liquor.
