A lot of breweries get their start in a garage. But we’re pretty sure Ponysaurus is the only one that started in an attic. And besides that tiny space above the entrance to The Cookery in Durham, NC (and the scissor lift we used to access it), the only other thing we started with was gumption. To think that maybe we could make great beers for people who take beer seriously, and not much else. 

From that passionate little beginning in 2015, a forward-thinking brewery and taproom has hatched.

Forward-thinking and backward-tasting

Our 6,000 square foot brewery specializes in a combination of traditional and experimental American, Belgian and European style beers, yielding an approach that can be described as forward-thinking and backward-tasting. Operating from a fifteen barrel brewhouse, the production facility is equipped with a state of the art lab, a full time lab technician that carries out a comprehensive sensory analysis program, advanced fermentation technology, and a Wild Goose canning line.

Our beer is sold and distributed in kegs, 4-packs of 16oz. cans and specialty release bottles, in addition to highly limited quantities of barrel aged products that are offered seasonally,
