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.

This light Pilsner-style lager is the perfect easy-going beer anytime of the year. Our award winning AB Blonde is the perfect thirst quencher.
In honor of the Black Pelican, we crafted this Maple Porter. Brewed with pale ale Malt, flaked oats, toasted oats, and vanilla – 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.
Brewed with a pound per gallon of Raspberries, Lemons, Lemon Zest, and Lemongrass, the aroma of this sour wheat hits hard with a great balance of berry and citrus.

These notes come together from a coordinated dance between the fruit and our double dry hopping of Nelson Sauvin and Columbus hops.
New England IPA

The fragrance then follows through onto the palate, in addition to a subtle vanilla and floral note, giving the taste of a tropical breeze.

In the glass, this beer pours a bright straw color and presents a wonderful aroma of lush tropical fruits and citrus. These flavors follow through with specific characteristics of melon and stone fruit.
A century ago, this island we call home was also known as the Atlantic City of the South. As the depression of the 30’s began hitting the country, it too hit this region, and Money Island went as dark as this beer.

Celebrating Untappd's 10 year anniversary, our version of this worldwide collaboration was brewed with our friends at Epiphany Craft Malt using all NC grown malt.
