We use only the very best fresh ingredients in our beer so that each pint is of exceptional quality.
In addition to our flagships, we have great seasonal styles and are always creating new beers!
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 such as lime zest and grapefruit.
Light American Pale Lager
This light Pilsner-style lager is the perfect easy-going beer anytime of the year. Brewed with Pilsner, Rice, and Carolina grown Rye malt from Riverbend Malt House - along with a healthy dose of Crystal hops, which lend a subtle lemon character - our AB Blonde is the perfect thirst quencher.
Brewed with Key Lime and Mint, in addition to the limey flavor of New Zealand’s Motueka hops, our Mojito Cerveza is the ultimate drink to bring in our favorite time of the year! Grab a taste of the season with a pint of this crusher.
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.
A century ago, this island was also known as the Atlantic City of the South. With the construction of casinos, bath houses, and other lavished features, some even began calling it Money Island due to all the extravagance and wealth being laid out. As the depression of 30’s began hitting the country, it too hit this region, and Money Island went as dark as this beer. Although black in color, this German-style Schwarzbier is an easy drinking lager with notes of mocha and bittersweet cocoa.
New England IPA
To commemorate our 2nd Anniversary, we wanted to go bold. In doing so, we chose to brew this hazy, pale orange IPA with two oil rich hops – Mosaic and Nelson Sauvin. On the nose, you’ll take in the aromatics of grapefruit, pine sap, and mango. This follows through on the palate with an herbal dankness, some green hop, and fruitier notes of melon, peach, and juicy fruit gum. These flavors are all held in balance by a background bready cracker note, a mild bitterness, and a soft mouthfeel.
Our Red, White, and Blue... Berry is a celebration of America on its day of Independence. Pouring with an attractive bluish purple haze, the nose is welcomed by the unmistakable aromas of being a kid out in the blueberry patch. Depending on your youth, this flavor will either take you back to your mom's homemade blueberry cobbler, or eating gushers gummies with your friends. Medium bodied with a subtle touch of wheat in the finish, this beer is tart, yet balanced with the sweetness of the berries.
American Pale Ale
Created with a blend of unique hops - Southern Passion and African Queen from South Africa, and the Neomexicanus breed Medusa - this is unlike any other hoppy beer we've brewed. Pouring an amber-gold, the nose conjures up the aromas of fleshy fruits such as lychee and guava. On the palate, these flavors follow through with additional tropical fruit basket notes, accompanied with a clean bitterness and subtle bready malt delivered by our use of toasted oats.
New England IPA
Pouring a hazy yellow-orange in appearance and drinking with a medium-light body, our Causeway IPA is double dry hopped with Citra and Azacca. These characterful hops emit big citrus notes of candied orange and white grapefruit, accompanied with tropical vibes of ripe mango and papaya. This is then balanced out with a mellow bitterness, in addition to a wild and green note from our restrained use of Comet hops.
In honor of the Black Pelican, we brewed this porter with Golden Promise, Golden Naked Oats, Vanilla and Lactose – along with a hearty addition of 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.
Sea birds fly the salty wind - east to south, north to west. Can we go as they go? Using over a pound per gallon of Key Lime and Blood Orange, the aroma of this sour wheat hits hard with a strong citrus nose. This follows through with a prominent limey tartness and background note of orange juice - all while being carefully tied together to create a balance of acidity and fruit.
Double Brut IPA
Back that Badonka Brut back up! Double dry hopped with Citra, Centennial, and Columbus, our Badonka Brut is a C-hop bomb that pours sunset gold in appearance with a slight haze. The nose of this brut invokes orange and tangerine zest with coniferous undertones. On the palate, the zest is prominent with complimentary notes of citrus pith, pine sap and honeydew melon, along with a character of blackberry created from a subtle alcohol presence. This is all balanced by a pleasingly subtle bitterness, background malt, and a medium-light body.
Sea birds fly the salty wind - east to south, north to west. Can we go as they go? With almost a pound per gallon of Plum and Pomegranate, this sour begins with a juicy dark stone fruit character and concludes with chocolate covered pomegranate, while being carefully tied together to create a balance of tartness and fruit.
Saison / Farmhouse Ale
Winner of the 2019 Mill Fest Homebrew Competition, this beer is a wonderful representation of a classic Belgian-style Farmhouse Ale with over 60 pounds of wildflower honey. This means over a tablespoon of honey in every pint!
Brewed with a traditional Saison yeast and Carolina Malt House, Inc. Pilsner Malt, you’ll get pome fruit (apples and pears) and honey on the nose. This follows through into the palate, with additional subtle notes of cherries and fresh cracked pepper.
New England IPA
Boasting a pale yellow haze and cloudy soft mouthfeel, the second run of our Tropospheric IPA series finds a balance between its layers of lemongrass, ruby red grapefruit and balsam fir needles. Within this batch, we wanted to blend West Coast hops into this East Coast IPA, bringing out the classic characteristics of Amarillo, Centennial and Simcoe.
Pale American Wheat Beer
Brewed on the Midsummer Day, our Solstice Wheat is a beautiful and hoppy American ale. Crafted with a blend of white wheat, toasted oats, and Vienna malt, this beer’s feature character comes from our use of Centennial and Cascade hops. With fragrant herb garden aromatics of beebalm, lemongrass, and white flowers, these aromas follow through onto the palate, while finishing with a clean, honey-like malt character. A medium-light creamy body, and effervescent finish ties this beer together. In the brewers’ opinion, this beer drinks like a jar of raw wildflower honey.
If it’s got hops in it - blanc it like it’s hot, blanc it like it’s hot, blanc it like it’s hot…
Blanc It Like It’s Hot is a bright and effervescent Brut IPA, blended with Sauvignon Blanc grapes and dry hopped with over 2 pounds per barrel of Nelson Sauvin and Hallertau Blanc. Pouring pale straw in color, aromas of papaya, lime zest and kiwi swirl around the nose. This carries over to the flavors of white peach, guava, and subtle gooseberry that lead to a spritzy and clean finish.
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 high alcohol content. With a smooth mouthfeel, medium body, and clean cocoa finish, this reverent dark lager wishes to be reposed once again.
