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.
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.
Sea birds fly the salty wind - east to south, north to west. Can we go as they go?
Using almost a pound per gallon of Raspberries, Lemonade, Lemon Zest, and Lemongrass, the aroma of this sour wheat hits hard with a great balance of raspberry and lemon. This follows through with a prominent raspberry profile and background note of lemon zest - all while being carefully tied together to create a balance of acidity and fruit.
Hazy Imperial IPA
We all have those moments where we feel immovable. Tread careful as we will, an unexpected current can still force us upon life’s hidden embankments. Take this moment, and realize it’s not a permanency – we may be run aground in moment, but there’s always the opportunity to break free and find the open sea once again.
Pouring a hazy orange reminiscent of mango juice, Run Ashore emanates a dank and pithy nose, yet still reminiscent of fresh squeezed tangerine juice. Triple dry hopped with Mosaic and Amarillo which provide this intense flavor, the tangerine follows through on the palate with saturated characteristics of fresh pine needles and juicy fruit. This is then concluded with a pleasant, yet mouth coating, resiny bitterness.
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.
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 Roasters in Morehead City.
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.
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.
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 brewed this Breakfast Porter. Brewed 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.
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.
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.
We are excited to collaborate with our friends from Southern Pines Brewing Company for this special small batch!
This tart wheat beer was fermented with chardonnay and pinot noir grapes before conditioning on honeydew melons, lemon zest, rhubarb, strawberries, and rose petals
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.
Black Berliner Weisse
Be on the lookout for our collaboration with our friends at Bhramari Brewing Company!
This black Berliner Weisse will feature chocolate, strawberry, vanilla, and lactose... yummmmm!
