At 10 years old Lonerider Brewing is part of the Old Guard in North Carolina craft beer. Like many southern states, North Carolina was slow to change outdated beer laws. They plan to celebrate throughout the year, the big party was in April but they'll continue to brew up special beers to mark the milestone.
Head brewer Galen Smith joined us this week to talk about his time with Lonerider. We discuss going from homebrewer to pro and what his tips are for the aspiring homebrewer. Smith also shares his thoughts on beer trends, including the Brut IPA and whether it's fading fad or here to stay. We sip some Pistols at Dawn and discuss its evolution, get the scoop on their new Wake Forest taproom, and just bit of mention on their newest venture, Lonerider Spirits.
