About Mystery Brewing
Founder and Head Brewer of Mystery Brewing, Erik Lars Myers has pretty much run the gamut of right and left-brained career choices – with a degree in theater and performance art and a long work background programming – it seems somehow fitting that he ended up right in the middle, with a beer in hand.
He has been self-taught in every aspect of his work career. After a decade of homebrewing, he started looking into the craft beer industry a little more seriously through his blog, Top Fermented, got involved helping out with Know Your Brewer and the North Carolina Brewers Guild, and finally decided to venture out on his own in business doing what he loves most. He loves brewing because he feels a kinship to its heady blend of art and science. He loves the creative aspect of inventing a truly outstanding beer and enjoys the precision that is required to craft it.
Cost is $40 per person (plus tax and gratuity). Advance reservations are required. There is limited seating, so please reserve today by calling 919-233-1632.
