Townes Mozer has had a rough weekend. On this Monday afternoon in mid-September his usually forceful gaze is a bit hazy, his green eyes red-rimmed. Inside the cavernous taproom of Lenny Boy’s new South Tryon location, the Charlottte native sits at the long shiny bar and rubs his stubbled face. He’s trying to recall specific dates from his career, emerging from pizza-chomping college student to the Queen City’s king of kombucha.
Cheese changed Randy Fisher’s business. While he grew up on Cackleberry Farm, overflown by incoming flights to the Concord Airport, he went out and saw the world before settling back down to the family trade. He estimates he is the 8th generation of farming Fishers in the area, having inherited the place from his father.
Wine Dinners, Beer Dinners, Vegan Dinners, fundraisers, farm classes, mixology classes, a celebration of soul food, and our very own pumpkin carving competition .. PCG and its Members have lots for you to do this month. Check out the PCG Events Calendar!
