When I moved from Denver, the first thing on my list was to find a brewery that is unique to the Raleigh-Durham area. When a co-worker told me about Ponysaurus Brewing located in Durham, NC, I knew it was a match made in heaven.
Upon arrival you are welcomed with a beer garden that can be enjoyed year round. With cozy heaters running during the colder months, and misters cooling you off in the hot summer months, there is no reason not to visit this place. But of course the real reason to come here is the beer...then again with the name of Ponysaurus why wouldn't you come here?! One of my favorite beers out of their lineup is their Marzan.
The Marzen beer is my favorite German Style beer in the area. This deliciousness in a glass is amber in color and has a slight bite. It is also perfect to enjoy during the fall months and pairs great with Colby Jack Cheese. If you have a sweet tooth like myself, you can pair this with Coconut Flan too.
Aside from offering brewery tours, yummy food trucks, and more great beer, they also have the option to 'Reserve a Grill'. You can reserve a grill online and choose from their food menu. Once confirmation is received, you show up at the bar to pick up your 'grill ready' meal, and they will show you to your grill.
This brewery is the place to bring your friends and family whenever they are in town. If you don't live in the area, I highly recommend this brewery on the brewery bucket list for it will not disappoint. I have to agree with Ponysaurus when they say it is "The beer beer would drink if beer could drink beer."
