In addition to our flagships, we have great seasonal styles and are always creating new beers!
We use only the very best fresh ingredients in our beer so that each pint is of exceptional quality.
Our goal is to bring a taste of the Crystal Coast to all that try our beer.
Modern American IPA
There’s that special feeling when you see the coast crest upon the horizon. We believe we've captured it in this IPA. Winner of a silver medal at the NC Brewers Cup, this beer is dry Hopped with Simcoe and Citra - giving tropical notes of apricot and mango, as well as citrus, lime zest and grapefruit.
In Morehead City, Arendell Street takes us from the historic downtown to our more modern districts. This beer follows the same suit - it carries the balancing bitterness and subtle floral and grapefruit notes we've come to expect within an American IPA, while also straddling the line of a more contemporary example with its juicier characteristic showcasing tropical fruits like papaya and mandarin orange. Whether you're a fan of the old school or new, this IPA will hit whatever you're looking for.
Fruited American IPA
Our Sangria IPA was brewed with a blend of red wine grape juice, strawberries, blueberries, blood oranges, giving this beer a deep and hazy purple appearance. Aromas of fresh pressed berries and grapes fill the glass, which follow through onto the palate - accompanied with a gooseberry note from our use of Nelson Sauvin hops. Drinking with a medium-light, yet creamy body, this beer is balanced by a classic IPA bitterness.
The second in our Small Batch IPA Series, this version was dry hopped with a combination of hops, including Ambrosia and Citra. A beautiful hazy appearance is followed up with flavors of tropical fruit, citrus, pears, and nectarines from our use of fresh hops.
American Pale Ale
Pouring a deep gold, this pale ale is full of aromatics and flavor delivered by our double dry hopping of Amarillo and Summit, along with kettle additions of Columbus. With notes of mandarin oranges and Meyer lemons, in addition to an evergreen background, the nose on this beer is bright and lively. As you drink though, these profiles switch roles and you’re enjoying a wonderfully sappy and bold citrus flavor. Medium-light bodied, with balanced carbonation level, this is the perfect hoppy beer for the transition of seasons.
Sea birds fly the salty wind - east to south, north to west. Can we go as they go?
Using nearly a pound per gallon of Strawberry and Blackberry, this beer has a light and beautiful red hue with a delicious berry aroma. This then follows through onto the palate - allowing a careful balance of acidity and fruit.
Imperial Berliner Weisse
One of our new favorites, Sunset Screwdriver is an Imperial Berliner Weisse that was generously fruited with almost 2 pounds per gallon of strawberries, tangerines and key lime. These additions are on full display from nose to palate – beginning with a stunning ballet between the berries and orange, then concluding with a poignant citric acidity from the lime.
Fruited Berliner Weisse
Using a pound per gallon of Blackberries, Spy Daddy hits hard with a strong dark berry nose. This follows through onto the palate with the initial sip, then evolving into a clean acidity. Our use of white wheat and toasted oats leads to a medium body, lactobacillus provides a balanced tartness, and an effervescent carbonation allows for a refreshing finish.
Coffee Blonde Ale
Pouring a beautiful gold, our Cinnablonde truly is a cafe in a glass. From the first pour, aromas of coffee, cinnamon, and vanilla emanate from the glass. This follows through onto the palate, along with additional pastry notes coming from our use of toasted oats.
Medium bodied with a silky finish, this blonde ale carries a great balance of the aforementioned flavors, in large part because of the wonderful characteristics produced from the Papua New Guinea cold press crafted by our friends at Crystal Coast Coffee Roasters in Morehead City.
Fruited American Lager
This fruited American-style Lager was brewed with a blend of blueberry and pineapple. Easy drinking and clean, with a perfect balance of both fruits, this beer will most certainly bring sunshine to your day.
Sea birds fly the salty wind - east to south, north to west. Can we go as they go?
Using about a pound per gallon of Passion Fruit, Mango, and Blood Orange, the aroma of this brackish sour wheat hits hard with a strong tropical bouquet on the nose. This then follows through onto the palate - allowing a careful balance of acidity and fruit.
Single Bock - Amber Lager
As an homage to our native dome-backed Terrapene, whom we’ll sometimes find wandering into the brewery, we created this Dunkles-style Bock. This beautiful amber lager is characterized by a toasty-rich malt character, with notes of creamy caramel accented with dark fruit. Brewed with locally grown Carolina Malt House Pilsner and Dark Munich malts.
Pouring deep brown with a beautiful garnet tint, this beer is a classic interpretation of the Munich-style Dunkel. Within the glass, wonderful characteristics of cocoa powder and toasted bread envelop the nose and palate. Medium bodied with a balanced and creamy carbonation, Dougalew is the beer that perfectly accompanies our transition into the cooler weather of autumn and winter. Original recipe is credited to our good buddy Doug, with malts provided by the folks at Carolina Malt House.
American Amber Lager
Pouring a beautiful rufous in color, this amber lager is medium-light bodied with great balance between malt and hops. Vienna and honey malts lend a honey covered biscuit character, while centennial hops add notes of dark berries and peach.
Seen soaring around the Kitty Hawk Lifesaving Station, the Black Pelican was a beacon of hope to wary sailors. If a threatening storm ever arose, these men knew they could depend on this winged savior to guide them to safety, even in the most unbridled conditions.
In honor of the Black Pelican, we crafted this Maple Porter. Brewed with Pale Ale Malt, Flaked and Toasted Oats, Vanilla and Lactose – along with a hearty addition of 100% pure maple syrup – this beer will keep you content indoors, so you don’t have to challenge the wrath of the sea and find safety behind the wing the Black Pelican.
Ronald, this one's for you...Goat Rodeo pours a dark mocha in the glass with a brown head, emitting rich aromas of chocolate mousse, fresh poured coffee, and toffee. The bold flavor evolves beautifully in the glass sustained by a lush mouthfeel. Within, we taste fudgy chocolate, cocoa powder and dark roast coffee.
Brewed with an assortment of ingredients, the most prominent being our use of double coffee offered by our friends at Crystal Coast Roaster – steeping fresh Nicaraguan beans during fermentation, then conditioning the final product on Columbian cold press – in addition to utilizing liquid cacao, vanilla, and lactose.
Respect thy dead, and pay your homage. Graveyard Sister is our tribute to the souls laid down in the Old Burying Grounds - whether they be with or without rest. Created in collaboration with Mill Whistle Brewing, this robust Baltic-style Porter balances a depth of fudgy chocolate malt character, while maintaining an easy drinkability despite its higher ABV. With a smooth mouthfeel, medium body, and clean cocoa finish, this reverent dark lager wishes to be reposed once again.
Fruited Sour (Farmhouse Ale)
Brewed with our good friends at Southern Pines Brewing, this recipe was borrowed from the one and only Kissin’ Kate Barlow. Looking like a straight peach in the glass, there’s no getting around what this beer is – pure peach juice. Brewed with a French farmhouse yeast, the orchard fruit esters from fermentation mingle wonderfully with the fruit and acidity. With a medium body, but bubbly carbonation, you’ll definitely feel the fuzz on this one. Brewed with a pound per gallon of peaches, and local grown Carolina Malt House malt.
Neapolitan Black Gose
This delicious gose was brewed with our friends at Bhramari Brewing Company!
This black gose mimics the taste of the classic Neapolitan ice cream flavor, featuring chocolate, strawberry, vanilla, and lactose with the classic sour taste of a gose at the end... yummmmm!
