Stopped by a couple of times to check out the local brew pub action on my vacation last week.

You would swear this place is a church, I drove by it three times the first night as it just blends right into the background, when they say "look for the windmill" ... turn RIGHT there...

Decor is typical/hacky brewpub, somewhat cold/wood accents with minimal lighting. I have seen a hundred brew pubs with the same look inside, I guess having flying arabian carpets in the dining room makes this slightly different. The bar itself is sleek and nice, it is also long and snakes from the dance floor/dining area all the way to the back door/smoking zone.

The bartenders were competent if not just going through the paces, they didn't seem enthused about the beers (maybe it was the time of year). They were prompt and friendly enough.

The beers were pretty lackluster, not bad per se but not one of the house beers was a stunner (I had the sampler - $7 plus others). The best of the home bunch was the kolsch, I found it to be a really nice example of the style. The ESB was so over the top hopped it was just over kill. I love hoppy beers but pairing high alpha with ESB... yeah, it's trendy but I would rather have good. The best beer on tap was the guest beer - Duck Rabbit Milk Stout... fashizzlle, it was fantastic. Pints ran $4.50 which is reasonable since most of the brews are 5%+ or higher.

Wed night is dance night... ugh.. I guess you have to do what you have to do to make $$$.

If you are staying in Kitty Hawk, Nags Head or Kill Devil Hills it is worth checking out, not worth a long road trip though.

Great atmosphere. Festive, fun, and busy. Waitstaff is on point. Food selection and quality is excellent. Brewery beer is good! Definitely a place worthy of return visits.

Stopped in here after a a lunch at Awful Arthurs MP 6 OBX its more of a restaurant than a brew pub/brewery clean inside with good service did not eat the food as i already ate but it looked good i ordered a flight of 4- 5oz brews , the brews were just average and they did not have many choices , this is a tourist stop as its on bypass rd #158 heavily traveled , it is close to chips wine and beer store, so go there and try this place its worth a stop

Went here in the summer of 2013 when I was on a vacation in the Outer Banks. Made this the one place I needed to see besides the beach.

Cool, funky atmosphere and decent food. Limited selection of beers that were pretty meh, but I was glad to try them. Not sure if I would go again unless I was really thirsty. Was a bit on the pricey side, but what do you expect for OBX?

If you're on the Outer Banks, this is where you will go. The place has a pretty eclectic, funky kind of vibe. You'll notice a giant wind turbine in the back, which helps to power the brewery. There's also a pirate ship playground out back for the kids. Inside, there is a ton of wall art from all over the place; everything from musical themes to superheroes, newspaper clippings to Viking profiles on burlap. It's pretty cool. Old school bar to the right of the entrance, with a lot of rustic feel and brass. Lots of table seating, as well. The staff is great. We were there with a toddler and an infant, and they were completely accommodating on a fairly busy day. There were 6 beers on tap...I'm guessing they run a little low when it's off season, and pick back up to full capacity for the tourist time. The food was great. Pretty dynamic gastro pub style offerings, with plenty of seafood, which is a must on the coast. I highly recommend stopping here if you find yourself in the OBX.
