This very special Virtual Happy Hour lands on Untappd official 10th Anniversary! Join us as Greg welcomes back the owner of The Pony Bar, Dan McLaughlin! They'll talk about the past anniversary parties at his bar, this year's festivities, and more!
Pony Bar founder Dan McLaughlin got bitten by the beer bug in the mid-’90s, but it wasn’t until he was bartending at The Blind Tiger in New York City’s West Village back in 1999 that he first started thinking about running his own place. He and Pony Bar partner Pat Hughes opened their first in the mid-2000s (Lansdowne Road in Hell’s Kitchen, which is still open), but one wasn’t enough. “I felt I had the know-how and financials to pursue opening a bar that centered on American-made beer from small breweries,” McLaughlin says. From there, Pony Bar was born.
Greg sits down with New York based photographer, Paul Shim on the Virtual Happy Hour, to discuss what it is like to capture the world of beer through the lens of his camera.
Greg Avola welcomes Augie Carton, co-founder of Carton Brewing Company (cartonbrewing.com), to Sessionable Saturdays!
