Get Ready for Experimental Beers With the Triangle's New Pop-Up Brewery

It's time for beer to get a lot weirder in the Triangle. This week, four of the minds behind Bond Brothers Beer Company in Cary announced the launch of a new pop-up brewery, Ancillary* Fermentation.

Self-described as "a fermentorium, and an art project, and a traveling conceptual pop up taproom, and a brewery, and a lot less pretentious than it sounds," Ancillary* won't have a permanent location (yet...), but instead will rely on monthly pop-up events around town. At each event they'll drop a new beer, have a party or other unique experience, and maybe bring along some other surprises. Each event will also share proceeds with a different charity.

The founders—Sean Marlin McKinney, Whit Baker, Andy Schnitzer, and Topher Fulton, founders and employees at Bond Brothers—are using this as sort of a side project to play with more experimental stuff, as well as do some interesting collaborations. "This is our way of having fun, shaking things up and giving back to a community that has been extremely supportive over the years," shares McKinney.

The first release is called “Cat’s Out Of The Bag,” and is a a Juicy IPA with Citra and Mosaic. The cat-themed party will be held at the just-opened downtown bar Junction West on Sunday, October 7. After the party, their beers will be sold from select bottle shops around the Triangle and beyond, including:

  • Sam’s Bottle Shop
  • Sam’s Quick Shop
  • Beer Study (Durham & Chapel Hill)
  • State of Beer
  • Tasty Beverage Co. (Raleigh & Asheville)
  • House of Hops (all 3 locations)
  • Bottle Rev Apex
  • Bottle Lake Boone
  • Bottle Rev RDU
  • The Glass Jug
  • Hey Beer
  • Gate City Growlers
  • Salud Beer Shop

Get excited for more fun to come from the guys at Ancillary*!
