It all started with a pint of Lonerider Brewing Co.’s Shotgun Betty.

That’s what Jason Austin, co-founder of Raleigh-based PintLabs tells me.

PintLabs, acquired today by Indiana beer tech SteadyServ, started on that Lonerider porch, really, when Austin got his first taste of “actually really good beer.”

“I liked beer, but I wasn’t into the craft beer scene too much,” he says. But that changed with his Lonerider experience. “From that point on, I was really interested in it.”
