Craft beer has all but taken over Charlotte; there are microbreweries on every corner and a healthy competition flourishing amongst Queen City brewers to find the very best flavor combinations. Lenny Boy Brewery found their place in the scene by doing craft beer right, with organic ingredients and a cutting-edge facility. But Lenny Boy also brews up another fermented beverage that the team is perhaps even more well-known for: freshly-bottled kombucha.
Founder Townes Mozer, a Charlotte native, opened Lenny Boy – named for his dog, Lennox – in Charlotte’s South End in 2011.
“The concept really came from a love for fermentation: kombucha, beer, mead, wines and other ferments,” he explains. “Really, I had the drive to combine simple organic ingredients and have the end outcome be something one could not do without that natural process of fermentation.”
