5 North Carolina Breweries to Check Out

Breweries are great places to gather with friends and laugh over the day’s adventures. These local watering holes are the ideal location for anyone looking to enjoy a couple of drinks in a laid-back atmosphere.

  1. What started as a concept in 1992 has become an Outer Banks staple. Outer Banks Brewing Station, the first wind-powered brewery in the country, is known for both its incredible beers and environmentally conscious production.
  2. Swells’a Brewing Beer Company, found in Kill Devil Hills, turns to the beach for inspiration. Their rotating list of local brews includes everything from pilsners to IPAs and sours.
  3. For classic pub food with a German twist, stop by Weeping Radish Farm Brewery & Butchery. Their menu of delicious food pairs perfectly with a delicious, cold beer. 
  4. Sip on world-class beer made in the Northern Outer Banks at Northern Outer Banks Brewing Company. This spot does offer snacks for sale but does not have a full menu, so we recommend grabbing a bite to eat elsewhere beforehand.
  5. Lost Colony Brewery uses imported hops, yeast, and grains in their British and Irish-style ales. For a waterfront experience, visit the Lost Colony brewery’s Waterfront Beer Garden on the Nags Head Causeway.

If you find your new favorite brew, be sure to grab a four-pack to sip on during the rest of your vacation.
