Brewer / Owner – Lenny Boy Brewing Co.
Townes’ interest in fermentation stems from a single sip of kombucha. Backed by his degree in Business and Environmental Science from UNC-Wilmington, he opened Lenny Boy Brewing in 2012, which grew so quickly it has expanded to a larger location only four years later. Lenny Boy was the first in the area to offer all organic kombuchas and beers, and is committed to sourcing much of its ingredients from local small farms.
