Pig Pounder Brewery

- Present

Awesome ingredients, amazing beer. Pig Pounder is a craft microbrewery specializing in (but not limited to) their award-winning English Ales. The name Pig Pounder is derived from a beer produced in 1988 at Darryl's Woodfire Grill. A pint, or 16oz "Pound-er", was called the "Pig Pounder" and featured a pig-faced label to symbolize Darryl's North Carolina roots.


Oral history interview with Kalif Mathieu (2018)

In 2014 maybe you could get by brewing classic styles of a specific origin and that's it. But in 2017 its a very different environment, where you have more breweries, and a lot more craft beer being consumed, more people in North Carolina that are craft brewery customers.

Oral history interview with Genisis Dancer (2018)

I think people tend to think of brewing as like a very creative job, but as a brewer you spend most of your time doing pretty repetitive tasks. So you hope that you love it because you're doing the same things every week.
