I was in Kill Devil Hills for NYE weekend and went to visit Chip's after reading the great reviews here. From the moment I walked it, I liked the place. My twin brother and I were greeted warmly upon entering and quickly made our way to the beer section.
Being from the Washington DC area, I am used to paying slightly higher prices, so I was pleased with the single bottle prices.
The staff was super helpful. We monopolized a lot of one gentleman's time by asking for local stuff. We talked to him about other collaborations and he even told us a seafood market to hit up upon request!
I thought the selection was pretty good, and I liked that it was organized by style of beer. Although, I think I would almost prefer if the same brand was together.
Overall, a great, great store. I didn't try anything in the tasting room, but they had some good stuff on tap, such as DFH Burton Baton.

Visited on a Saturday early afternoon in August as we arrived for a week in OBX.

A - Typically wine/beer store atmosphere, except for the rocking tunes. Need to try the attached wine/beer bar. I love the thought of browsing for my purchases while also drinking a high caliber beer.

Q - Many beers are available chilled. No complaints.

S - Service was excellent. Now they were not crowded, but the staff was quick to ask if I needed help. Provided excellent assistance when I did ask (about a Meritage for my wife) and we had a short converstation about the Doobie Brothers and how they were underrated as a guitar band.

S - Good selection for the OBX, but not mind blowing for some of us who might be from certain parts of the country or otherwise have a top notch store close to home. That said, there were still beers on the shelf that I had not had and there were sixes of my favorites.

This is the store I wish was in Moyock which is much closer to me. Very nice selection of beer, even had a nice selection of branded glassware and some nice gift packs I hadn't seen before. The guy there working was very nice and attentive to my needs and questions. Having some beers on tap was just the tipping point that made the store special for me.

In my part of VA going and having a pint and shopping for beer are two separate ventures, but at Chips you can do both, and they seem to have good stuff on tap.

This store again had some freshness issues same as the Moyock store, but then again there aren't many stores that don't.

If I lived closer this would be one of my main go to shops.

Pretty much the standard beer store, in terms of atmosphere and quality. The service was average, and the staff was friendly, talkative, and knowledgeable about their products.

As for the selection, this is where Chip's does a great job. There are several shelves stocked with beers. They have an awesome selection of individual bottles, so that you can create your own four or six pack. Also, they have every bit as impressive of a six-pack selection, as well. There are also beers in coolers for you to drink a cold one while you're there.

The prices at Chip's are what you would expect pretty much anywhere else. They had beers ranging from low end, all the way up to 15-20 bucks. It all depends on what you're looking for, but in terms of "market value," it's about average.

Chip's is a great surprise for any beer lover heading to the Outer Banks. The staff was very attentive and friendly, and seemed pretty knowledgeable about beer in general. The atmosphere is laid back and seems happy and welcoming. Every time I went in the service was fast and really good.

This place has a great beer selection, best in the Outer Banks. Not only do they have a very good selection of 6 packs and 12 packs, but the singles for sale selection was amazing: the place literally has hundreds of beers to choose from.

Good local selection and beers from around the US and world, this is the place to go for any craft beer fan. The wall of singles is set up in various styles and the cold selection of singles was very good as well. The prices are on the high side, but being from NY they were average to me so I didn't have an issue spending quite a bit of money each time I went it. I did not sample any of the beers on tap, but that is just another great option thatg they offer. This is THE place to go for beer in the Outer Banks.
