Pretty cool place actually. Beer selection is good, not great. They mostly have small format bottles, unrefrigerated. Next door to the bottle shop is their tasting room - only six taps, but when I was there they were pretty high impact, with things like Devil Dancer, Founders Harvest, Creme Brulee, Wheat Love.

My wife and I discovered this place by accident and were glad we did. Itís right on the main drag in and out of the Outer Banks, and is an excellent place to pick up the best craft and import selections around. I found a few goodies here that I canít get across the state line in Virginia, and the guy working (owner?) was super cool, well informed, beer savvy and low key. Most definitely worth a visit!

Very nice selection of beers and all available as singles. Thatís always appreciated. Friendly service. You could call this an oasis as thereís not that many good beer shops in the OBX.

Visited 05/06/15. This is probably the best store youíll find in the northern outer banks. Chipís is a modest place located in a strip mall. Easy parking. The service was friendly but unhelpful. The beer selection wonít impress most people, but itís decent for a shop in an out-of-the-way tourist town. Thereís probably 200 beers available, including many singles. Only a few North Carolina beers were available. Most of the stuffís the kind of large craft that youíll find anywhere (Boulevard, SN, Stone etc.). Thereís also a small tasting room with a few beers on tap. Prices were OK.

Impressive selection of domestic and foreign beers. Most small bottles are available as singles. Half a dozen beers on draft, available in 5 oz pours, and featuring regional beers (Georgia to Virginia). Friendly and knowledgable staff.

Good beer in the Outer Banks?! Long overdue! Chip provides good service and a solid selection. There werenít many I hadnít had, but itís hard to complain with the excellent selection that included Victory, Duck Rabbit, Dogfish Head, Rogue, and many more. Looks like all the beers are available as singles. A must-stop when youíre on the Outer Banks.

This is a small store front in the 6 mile strip mall. It is easy to miss while driving. Large selection of North Carolina and other southern beers. They sell singles of most everything. They have six taps and you can drink while you shop. It is a great place to stop to stock the fridge in your obx rental.

Best place on the Outer Banks for beer. Mixed sixers and good selection. LIttle bit pricey but thatís what you get with a monopoly in a resort area like this. Right at Mile Marker 6.

Located right by Mile Marker 6 on Rt 158. If youíre coming from the north watch it as it jumps out at the last minute as the entrance is kind of blocked by a sign for another business. Nice looking place. Modern strip mall. As you walk in there is a cooler on your right with chilled wine, beer & champagne. Staff was always asking if there was anything they could do to help. Keep going straight from where you came in and on the right is a wall of singles on the left six packs as well as half of the next aisle. The singles are sorted by style, not brand. Real good selection, wish Cary had this store. Nice mix of things and do have Weeping Radish bottle selection if you donít have chance to visit them. Solid beer store, other stores I was in had bits & pieces of a beer selection, but Chipís is a dedicated beer store worth visiting. As an aside there is a good coffee place in the same mall, Front Porch Cafe, Good baked goods and coffee, but I digress...
