Brewed & Bottled – Drink Local
There is nothing quite like enjoying a frosty local brew or a glass of wine while on vacation. Here on the Outer Banks, you can take your pick. There are plenty of establishments that offer craft beer brewed right here on the Outer Banks or in the Carolinas. And that goes for its wine, too. Take a winery tour, visit a brewery or simply sit back, enjoy the view and sip on wine made from native North Carolina grapes or a beer brewed right on the premises. There’s always something to celebrate on the Outer Banks. It’s time to lift your glass. Cheers!
