I checked this place out on a recent trip to Duck, NC and was pleasantly surprised at the beers. My wife and I went in to meet friends (who happened to leave us waiting for 2 hours) and between us we sampled all of the beers offered. From the Kolsch to the Stout all of the beers tasted brewed to style. The bitter was my favorite, followed closely by the Kolsch. I was a little sad when I walked in and saw that there was no IPA on tap, but when I got a chance to try the other styles, I was impressed.

Our first visit was on a Thursday night. They have live music after 9 or 10 during the summer, so I would suggest you go early so you may enjoy some peace and quiet for your tasting. We went back for lunch the next day and the lunch time crowd is much better for a casual tasting and coversation.

The food is very good. My wife will still tell you about her 'spent grain pizza', and she will be glad to tell you about the level of sweetness that the grain imparts to the crust. I enjoyed their burger greatly, and the next day I had a reuben that went very well with the Kolsch.

If you must visit a brewery in the outer banks, make it this one. (1,157 characters)

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 (455 characters)

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? (373 characters)

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. (990 characters)

Stopped here during my labor day vacation. Place is pretty big. 2 floors with a large bar downstairs. Our entire party thought the food was pretty good. A little bit pricey for a brew pub but I understand it's a vacation spot. They only had 4 beers on tap. I tried all four and found them all pretty mediocre. Maybe the best place around the outer banks area but that isn't saying much. (390 characters)

Decent food selection, nothing special, expected a lot more given what we had read before our visit.

Flights were a nice option. Beer was good. Their signature beer with Lemongrass was ok (not worth $16 for a 4pk though). (224 characters)
