Nice beer/wine store, good selection for this area. Had tastings going on when I was there. service was good, you can find something you like here. Would have liked to see more local stuff to choose from, but it’s the best shop around here.
Visited 05/06/15. This is probably the best store you’ll find in the northern outer banks. Chip’s is a modest place located in a strip mall. Easy parking. The service was friendly but unhelpful. The beer selection won’t impress most people, but it’s decent for a shop in an out-of-the-way tourist town. There’s probably 200 beers available, including many singles. Only a few North Carolina beers were available. Most of the stuff’s the kind of large craft that you’ll find anywhere (Boulevard, SN, Stone etc.). There’s also a small tasting room with a few beers on tap. Prices were OK.
Very nice selection of beers and all available as singles. That’s always appreciated. Friendly service. You could call this an oasis as there’s not that many good beer shops in the OBX.

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.

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.
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.
This place is conveniant, right near the bridge. (MP 6 I think). One side has a nice tasting room witha small bar and some round tables. Very comfy inside. They always rotate stuff and keep good stuff on tap. They have flights. Assorted cheeses are the only food. The other side has a very good selection of single bottles and 6 packs. Prices are reasonable. People are very friendly and somewhat knowledgeable. Highly recommend this while at OBX.
Very nice place that I luckily found on Ratebeer and was able to visit. Bottle beer selection for singles is very good and many local NC choices that I haven’t seen before. Service was perfect - available and friendly, but not pushy. Small tap room is connected with 6 beers available for a pint or sample. Great place for good beer while in OBX.
Originally reviewed: 9/14/09. Wow! This is the one and only place to get your beer when in the area. An entire wall is dedicated to single bottles of beer, all separated by style. Another rack is 6-packs only, and there’s even a small cooler section if you want to take your beers straight to the beach for consumption. Chip offers a very wide selection of brews at very reasonable prices. Many of his single bottles are less then $1.99, which is hard to find where I come from. I even found the new Stone Vertical for only $7.99! I spoke with Chip a little bit and he was very nice and helpful. I told him this was the most recommended beer stop for the area by BA, and he was very happy about that. I will return here again and again when I get back to this area. Highly recommend.
