WHY CALL THIS EVENT "DON'T BE MEAN TO PEOPLE?"

The event's name roots from Don't Be Mean to People: A Golden Rule Saison, a collaborative beer brewed by Ponysaurus Brewing Co. with Mystery Brewing Company and 40+ other participants in 2016 to raise money and awareness around HB 2, a bill that we all believe "violates Golden Rule #000001." The beer made national headlines and raised over $40,000 for Equality NC and Queer Oriented Radical Days of Summer, an organization that leads camping trips for queer and transgender youth. 

The simple message of "Don't Be Mean to People" is our stand for community engagement to protect the voices and rights of everyone. Last year, Ponysaurus held the first Don’t Be Mean to People festival on May 6th to support the American Civil Liberties Union of North Carolina. The event brought over 1,500 guests to the brewery and raised over $25,000 for the ACLU.
