When you step into Pig Minds, you’ll see all of our brewery equipment exposed and hard at work. The brewery has a cool industrial feel to it with stained concrete floors. Within that mass of equipment is where the magic brewing process happens!

We offer growler specials every day of the week. Our head brewer Carson Souza has been crafting excellent beers for over 7 years now. Customer favorite beers include the Southy Bitch Slap and the PD California Ale.

Our brewpub has nightly specials including $2.50 12 oz. bottles on Thirsty Thursday, $3 pints on Monday, and Growler night on Wednesday. In addition to great beers, Pig Minds is one of the only brewpubs in the business with lots of vegan options. Favorites include our portabella sandwich and the Seoul Korean tacos. Come join us soon for some delicious beer with no boundaries!
