The first windpowered brewery in America, Outer Banks Brewing Station, is the best restaurant on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Since 2001, the OBBS mantra of “no maps on our taps” has translated into brewing well over 100 styles of beer – and counting. Try a sampler beer flight or a pint at their famous bar while watching the kids play in their awesome backyard. They also have 2-liter, refillable growlers, or 4-packs of 16 oz. cans of conditioned Lemongrass Wheat Ale for the beach. Wherever your palate leads you, let it start under the wind turbine at milepost 8.
The Outer Banks Brewing Station restaurant and brewery began as a concept in 1992 while the founders, Eric Reece and Aubrey Davis were Peace Corps volunteers alongside Tina Mackenzie in Thailand. Aubrey had grown up spending summers at his grandparents’ place on the Outer Banks, and felt it was the perfect place to start a brew pub. The Outer Banks Brewing station is now a staple in the OBX restaurant landscape.
