Great concept, poorly executed. Unimpressed is the best word for my visit here. The beer was not good.it tasted soapy.In fact I drank a national after tasting their product The service was slow and unprofessional . The food was not very tasty. In fact it was rather bland. I had a " Cajun" dish, it was dull as dishwater. It tasted like the pasta was cooked in dishwater. The server was disinterested and inattentive. Every request was a burden to her, including accommodating a life threatening allergy.
I will not be back. I highly recommend going elsewhere.

The most surprising was that for their stronger beers they gave you a smaller glass "because they pack a kick". Nice selection with a range of beers, the ones I tried were very good. Despite the small glasses with a normal price I like the place. Nice place overall.

Visited to refill our growler that we got several years ago - last time thru they weren't open on the days we were near Kill Devil Hills - now they are open 7 days. very quiet today, did the sampler and enjoyed everything except the "olsh". We were able to fill the growler with their special saison, but a quite a cost $28.00 vs. $16.00 for a normal refill. This place is just OK for me - always looks like it could be a little cleaner, but bartender was pleasant and helpful, beers were pretty good, food looks pretty standard. I'm sure we would stop by if we are nearby again, but it wouldn't be a first stop. We enjoyed a place called "Trios" which I will add if it isn't already on the site.

Visited on a Wed around 5:30, very busy.
Leave the beach early, beat the crowds and hang in the back. Get the four x 7oz sampler to start. To say the least, I was very happy with our visit. I will be back. IMO, their beers are UNDERRATED!
A – Eclectic. Upstairs, rugs on the walls and hanging from the ceiling? Nice long bar. Great outdoor area in the back with live music and a place for the kids to play. Kid friendly.
Q – Fine. All the beers were served in pints, as appropriate.
S - Good service, friendly waiter, no complaints.
S - For a brew pub I thought the beers, of which there were only four at the time (kolsch, wheat, IPA and porter), were great. I was surprised at the quality and breadth. Disappointed that they had run out of the tripel. They had one guest tap - SN Torpedo.
F – Excellent! Try the hush puppies, good kids’ meals.
V - $$$ - $100 before tip for four (2 adults, 2 children). Food can be a bit pricey depending on what you order. Beers were a $$.

ATMOSPHERE- A bit of a tight squeeze, but it was pretty busy when I visited. Here was an outside seating area that looked really nice, and had a live beach-style band playing.
The bar area was where it got pretty congested. Good sized galley-style bar, with about four bartenders working at one time. More on that later. There is an upstairs area that I didn't check out, but downstairs was mostly wood-themed with a kind of older beach-style feel. Pretty nice place.
QUALITY - The food and beers are outstanding. My girlfriend ordered a mixed drink from their menu, and it was well made, also. Everything seemed to be done the right way here. Their tables were a nice heavy wood, and the cleanliness was definitely above average, especially for a place that stayed as busy and heavily traveled.
SERVICE - As mentioned earlier, they had about four bartenders working at one time. This was completely necessary, as they were very busy. However, the bartenders still managed a nice smile and kind disposition when you finally got a chance to order a drink. When we first arrived, they directed us to a table with two chairs, but I ended up having to order our drinks because we were lost in the shuffle. However, about 30 mins later, we were offered a booth that opened up, and the waitress provided exceptional service.
SELECTION - They had bottled beers available for your standard domestics...but why would you come to a place like this to drink beer like that? The selection of craft brews was limited to their in-house stuff. I selected their Abracadabra Brown and Summer Rye Stout, both of which I found pretty damn delicious. They have a full bar, so pretty much any drink you could imagine is a possibility in that category.
FOOD - They had a diverse menu. I had creme brulee for dessert, and my girlfriend had some mac 'n cheese. All in all, we were very impressed.
VALUE - It's in a beach town, guys. That means it's bound to be above average. Don't be surprised when you drop 40 bucks or more on food and a beer with you and your significant other or super-friend.

Even though we went for late lunch on a a weekday, this place was pretty busy and I can imagine it getting real packed at prime lunch time or in the evenings. Interior was nothing special - lots of wood and large glass windows that look into the brewing area.
The beers were well poured with proper amounts of head (it looks like someone actually took the time to make sure each of the beers were served with a proper head). Unfortunately everything was served in a shaker pint which might be my least favorite glass.
Service was OK - not bad but not great either. Took a long time to come over and take an order and slow to refill waters but very attentive to serving the beers promptly.
There was not a huge selection of beers available (only 5 at the time I visited) but they were somewhat interesting takes on more traditional styles which were successful and a nice change of pace that seemed appropriate at the beach. The Lemongrass Wheat and the ESB were the highlights in my opinion - both very refreshing and perfect for a warm day at the beach.
Food was pretty good though I wish that more of the seafood being offered was local seafood rather than fish that are from other area (like the pacific). The food that we tried was quite good and the salad dressing made from the Lemongrass Wheat beer was excellent.
Prices were in line with other places at the beach, that is to say a touch higher than I would expect for places elsewhere in NC.

I have recently decided that when I am on vacation, the souvenir that I am going to buy will be a growler from a local brewery.
In 2012, we were at the Outer Banks, and after some research, decided to try the Outer Banks Brewing Station.
We stopped here for a late lunch, and we are glad we did. The food and the atmosphere were excellent. The service was a little slow, but was to be expected, since it was a rainy day at the beach, they were very busy, and we did not really mind since this allowed us to really savor the food and the beer.
The real reason for the stop was the beer, so we bought a sampler of 4 beers, Olsch, Lemongrass Wheat, Vikings Liking, and Altimeter. An excellent variety of beers, and I decided to fill my souvenir growler with the Vikings Liking.
I highly recommend the Outer Banks Brewing Station as a stop for a meal and drinks. One of the highlights of our vacation this year.
