I visited Chip's around 8/16/11 while vacation at the Outer Banks, NC.

The store was easy to find in the Mile Post 6 shopping center on the east side of the highway. Inside there was primarily 2 rows of shelves and a couple cools that held beer. There was nothing here that was exceptionally good or difficult to find, but the selection of local beers were very good. There was some Eastern Carolina stuff like Mother Earth and Weeping Radish as well as a good variety from Bells, Ska, Founders, DFH. Not much in terms of Belgians, but the locals were well represented. The cashier was very friendly asking if we needed help and chatting with me as we checked out. There was a pretty good selection of glassware, but nothing that blew my mind.

Overall, I think that this is a very nice place to have in your back pocket way out from civilization at the beach, there are probably 50 stores within 30 minutes drive of Philadelphia that have similar selections. In fact, almost every Total Wine I've ever stepped into in DE, NJ, and NC has the beer repertoire and price of Chip's. That said, the most important thing in beer stores is location, location, location and there ain't no other game within 50 miles.

I was looking forward to stopping here, but I must of just hit it at an off time as I found very little to purchase. Nice people and I'll definitely try again someday.

Good variety and looks to be better than most in the area.
They have a singles and mixed 6 pack area with a good mix of beers. The prices on singles look to be just slightly more than the full 6's and very fair.
Would be nice to see more locals as an out of state guy, but otherwise a nice place in the OBX area.

Super helpful staff that made great recommendations. Great selection that was very well organized. Love the pick a six option. How can you not love a place that will sell you a pint and let you shop?

Will certainly become a staple during our OBX trips.

Reviewed from notes taken a year or so back.

The most diverse offering of beers I've found on the Outer Banks. Fresheness dates were mostly withing code and prices seemed reasonable for a touristy area.

Good place to go shopping for the stuff you won't fined in smaller or less specialized shops.

Service was helpful. Even though the particular beers I wanted to find were not available the young woman running the register was able to tell me that nobody in the area would have the beers from the particular NC brewery I wanted to try since they don't distribute as far east as the Outer Banks.

Good place to check out. Easy to get to and find.

Chip's in KDH is a must for any BA's in the OBX. The staff is friendly, engaging, and knowledgable. The selection is as good as any you will find in the area. Plus, they have a good selection of cold beer in the cooler to your right as you're walking into the store. Since they added the bar area, I have enjoyed sipping on a beer (or two) as I shop. Chip's also has a decent selection of glassware.
