Great brewery/restaurant. Very relaxed atmosphere even when very busy. Beer selection is pretty good...usually 5 to 6 on draft (they’re all their own). Service is always very good. The wait staff and bartenders know their beer. I had a chat with one of the owners. Real personable and quite knowledgable when it comes to beer. Food is excellent. Great selection of seafood, burgers, and the like. My parents live within walking distance...I need to visit them more!
Stopped here twice on vacation & enjoyed both trips. Plenty of seating options, but I’m sure it gets busy in season. Nice beer selection, 8 on tap & 3-4 winners. IPA & Hefe were quite nice. Food was very good, Bison Burgers, cheese steaks, shrimp & grits were all enjoyed! Bar was a good spot to catch a game at night. Worth the stop if you are on the OBX, particularly if it’s off peak!
Visited 05/06/15. A very large brewpub located along the commercial sprawl of the Croatan Highway. This part of the outer banks is entirely oriented towards towards the seasonal tourist trade, this place sort of feels set up to absorb a huge crowd. The brewpub feels like a large barn. There’s a few eating areas, one of which has an elevated stage. I sat at the bar and received prompt though disinterested service. Unfortunately, only 5 house beers were available, no guests. The house beers were without significant flaws, but very safe and underwhelming. The lemongrass wheat was the only beer that really exceeded my modest expectations. Prices were decent. Overall, this place is worth a stop if you’re in the area and interested in a few ticks. However, don’t lose any sleep if you skip a visit.
Decent beers, decent service and mediocre but expensive food. There’s not much going on in the Outer Banks - beer wise - so I guess this is the place to visit. We visited the place off-season so there was quite quiet.
A lunch stop on my trip. Only six beers on tap at any time. Ambiance was nice, service was first rate. Food was pretty good. I was actually quite impressed with the beer - in a flight of four tasters two were exceptional and one was very good. Definltely worth checking out if you are in OBX.
The only food I’ve had here has been appetizers, but I’ve enjoyed what I’ve tried. As a fan of wheat beers/hefewizen style, I must say I was impressed by their Lemongrass Wheat. Very light and easy to drink, and the bartender was very helpful in recommending it to me based off my personal tastes. I’ve also tried their Kolsch which was quite satisfying too.

Only 6 beers available -- all on draft. All good and some are very good. They are experimenting. Two of the beers were unrated. Good food. A nice place for lunch. Worth a stop if you are on the outer banks.
Lunch stop on the way to Hatteras. Beers on tap were mainly their own, ~5 styles. Service was good, food was good. Place was not very busy when we were there. Left with a growler of their lemongrass wheat ale. Somewhat annoyed you can only use their growlers but o well.
Nice to have a brewery in the Outerbanks. Smallish selection of beer and a good selection of food. Some beers are of interest in particular the lemongrass wheat. Only annoying part is the amount of events with cover charges. Otherwise decent hangout with some decent beers.
