Fullsteam’s Fearrington Winter Coffee Pecan Porter
Thanks for following along on my travels in 2014. I’m already making my exploring plans for 2015 and look forward to sharing my photographs and thoughts about Triangle events with you in the new year! In the meantime, I wanted to leave you with one last recommendation as we near the Christmas holiday and the end of yet another year. If you are looking for a last minute local gift or just a special local beer to enjoy over the holidays I recommend picking up this seasonal offering from Fullsteam Brewery in Durham. It was born out of a collaboration between Fullsteam and Fearrington Village in Chaple Hill. It is called “Fearrington Winter: Pecan Coffee Porter”. The label describes it as a “smooth and toasty porter brewed with southern pecans and Fearrington Village coffee beans.” It’s basically like Christmas magic in a bottle. I picked up this bottle at The Hop Yard in North Raleigh but you can find it in bottle shops throughout the area.
Enjoy and Happy Holidays!! See you in 2015!

I love how the Triangle’s local beer scene continues to grow. In recent months we have seen some new smaller breweries start operating in Raleigh and Durham. You’ll have a chance to try the beer from one of the newest additions next week when Ponysaurus Brewing Co., Durham’s newest nano-brewery visits downtown Raleigh’s Tasty Beverage on Thursday February 6th from 5:30-7:30. Brewmaster, Keil Jansen, will be on hand with kegs of their Fig Saison, IPA, Biere de Garde, Reserve, and Vidieri Chocolate Stout all on draft. There will also be a limited amount of Ponysaurus bottles available for sale.
I haven’t had a chance to try the offerings from this local brewer yet, but I have heard very good things about them and look forward to stopping by this Thursday night to grab a pint. Hope to see you there!
Check out this great article about Ponysaurus in the Independent Weekly to learn more about the inspiration behind this creative new nano-brewery operating out of a space at The Cookery in Durham.
