Pig Pounder Brewery (Preview)

Pig Pounder is coming soon to Greensboro.  The brain child of Marty Kotis it is most certain to be a success as soon as it opens later this year.  Marty has hired Sam Rose and was able to steal him away from Highland Brewing in Asheville.  Sam is an experienced brewer with a plethora of knowledge about brewing and beer.  The beers will be available at Darryl's Woodfired Grill, The Marshall Free House (Opening soon), Burger Warfare (Opening soon), Yo Daddy and in the tasting room at Pig Pounder Brewery.  In The Marshall Free House location they will have a Beer Engine and serve Cask beers from Firkin's or Pin's.  The ale or beer firkin (from Middle Dutch vierdekijn meaning "fourth") is a quarter of an ale or beer barrel.  This unit is much smaller than the wine firkin. Casks in this size (themselves called firkins) are the most common container for cask ale.  A pin is equal to half a firkin (4.5 imp gal or 20 l).  Once this brewery opens you can bet that I will be visiting and doing a complete review of the brews and have a picture or two.  No pictures for now as they are still in construction phase and I don't want to give away too much information.  Keep a watch on the North Carolina Beers Facebook Page and the Pig Pounder Page for more information and construction updates.
