Stopped here on our way to Corolla for vacation and I was alittle let down.
I first tried to order a mix case on thier website but never recieved any confirmation.
A large roomy building that seems empty.
Not a large beer selection, got some black radish and kolsch and a mini growler of IPA25.
I inquired about gold and dobblebock but the lady at the counter, who was quite nice and infomitive, said that thir last two shipments came in all destroyed(?). So I guess they don't brew there I don't know.
They had a nice selction of meats at the butcher counter and was going to pick some up then but decided to wait until we departed. So the palce doesn't open till 12 on Sundays, my loss.

The pub area was large but didn't eat there so I can not comment.

All in all not a bad place. Could be better used I think.

DEfinitly would stop for beer but you live and learn.

Awesome real German beer in the Outer Banks, NC. The owner is Uli and he has been brewing for decades. Very nice selection whenever I go...their Christmas Doppelbock and Ruddy Radish red ale are standouts. Prosit!

This place appeared dirty and rundown especially the bar. I asked the bartender to tell me what she liked and she giggled and said im only 18 and I cant drink. What a joke. The beer was middle of the road at best.

Visitied here just before NYE.

There was not much to see, you can go to the viewing deck and check out the brew house while you wait for a table.

They have packaged beer ready to go and you can check out right at the bar.

We were their for lunch and waited about 20 minutes for a table.

Food was pretty good. Traditional Bavarian food, sausages, pretzels, liverwurst. Everything pretty good. The sweet potato liverwurst was a personal favorite.

Beers are decent. I have had better but I really respect that they are trying all they can to do everything locally.

We made a detour on our recent trip south so I could visit Weeping Radish and pick up a case of Black Radish. Our GPS said we had arrived at our destination; of course we hadn’t – another 0.2 - 0.3 miles further on we spotted it on the west side of the highway. The gravel parking lot was plenty big for the afternoon meal crowd.
A somewhat long wait to be seated in the nearly empty restaurant afforded us each time to hit the restroom and gave me time to peruse the “beer to go” cooler and partial pallet of canned beers in four-packs. The four-packs were Black Radish, Ruddy Radish, OBX Beer, and Corolla Gold, all of which were also available on tap.
We ordered: my wife got the mushroom and Swiss burger and iced tea (They were out of their home made root beer) and I got the classic Reuben and a Black Radish. My wife says her burger was good and my Reuben was excellent; however my Black Radish was just OK. I first had Black Radish at a microfest at Stoudt’s in Adamstown in 2006 and loved it. Years later I purchased a case of bombers on line and still really liked it. Now something had changed, either the beer or my taste. My second beer was the IPA 25 which was only on tap – no cans. It was quite a decent IPA. The complete menu and beer list are on the Weeping Radish website.
Tours are only available one day a week – call ahead to schedule. However, there is a second floor observation area which you can visit any time. This overlooks the brewery; when I was there no one was working in the brewery.
A couple of months ago they switched from bombers to flip tops which cost you an extra $ 2/bottle. If you return the empty, you don’t pay the $ 2 on the next bottle. But it’s not a deposit – it’s only worth the $ 2 if you pick up another flip top. I noticed there were different sized flip tops in the cooler, some with poorly removed previous labels. Also, they no longer ship beer.
To sum up – if you’re in the area it’s worth stopping in. If not, it’s probably not worth the side trip.

Stopped here for lunch on our way to the OBX. Very German beer haus atmosphere. They make all their own sausages and they were very good. Beer list is just above average so there is lots of room for improvment. Service was really great, nice friendly girl who knew a little about the beer and kept coming back to check on us. Service was fast and that counts for something. My only complaint was the casing on the hot dog was a little tough.

Stopped here when passing by going up the coast. Beers were ok to very good but the real star here to me was the food which was absolutely outstanding. It appeared everything they used was grown there on site. Prices were respectable, perhaps a little pricey for some but that goes with the exceptional quality. While I might not say this is a destination for beer, I would probably go back for the food. Highly recommended.

First of all keep in mind this place serves German beer. For my beer snob friends this means if you're hop head you not going to find your favorite beer in this place , however if you're beer lover you will enjoy the visit
Good beer and reasonably priced food and a good atmosphere you'll enjoy
