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.
Crystal Coast IPA ABV 6.4 – American IPA
There’s that special feeling when you see the coast crest upon the horizon, and the sea greets you while crossing the Intracoastal Waterway. There’s a sense of wonder brought upon as the beacon flashes from the Cape Lookout Lighthouse. There’s a moment of exhilaration as the Shackleford horses breeze past, running free on the beach. This culmination of experiences is what makes the Crystal Coast such an extraordinary place. It’s the moments like these that inspired us to brew this IPA - hopped with Simcoe, Citra, and Columbus - giving it a bouquet of tropical fruit and vibrant citrus - concluding with a pleasant malt finish.
252 Pale Ale ABV 5.0 - American Pale Ale
This pale ale is hazy gold in color, much like an Atlantic sunset on an overcast evening - with a gleaming hop character representing a few of the vibrant and delicious fruits you'll find growing across our side of the Old North State - blueberries, melons and stonefruit. This beer is sure to appease anywhere you're kickin' it in the 252.
Arendell IPA ABV 6.0 – American IPA
In Morehead City, Arendell Street takes us from the historic downtown to our more modern districts. Bordering the line between modern American and New England-style IPA, the Arendell is soft bodied and smooth. Brewed with Citra, Mosaic and Centennial hops, this beer carries notes of mandarin orange, papaya and citrus blossoms. Lower carbonation levels and minimal bitterness
lead to a very approachable IPA for folks just getting into this style.
Money Island Black Lager ABV 5.1 - Schwarzbier
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.
Breakwater Coffee Brown Ale ABV 5.3 - English Brown Ale (RETURNING JUNE 2018)
Designed to protect our coast from inclement weather, breakwaters work hard to keep our shores beautiful - Just like these structures, we worked hard with our friends at Crystal Coast Coffee Roasters to develop this brown ale that carries a bright and lively coffee character, but is still balanced by underlying chocolate and nutty notes that finishes with dark fruit. Brewed with North Carolina malted heritage barley from Riverbend Malt House and Ethiopian/Panamanian cold press blend from Crystal Coast Coffee Roasters.
Hazy Coast IPA ABV 6.0 - New England IPA (RETURNING JULY 2018)
Reminiscent of those days on the coast where there is a blanket of fog rising up from the tides, this New England-style IPA will envelop your palate like a mist with its pillowy body and tongue coating stone fruit hop character. Brewed with North Carolina malted Appalachian wheat from Riverbend Malt House.
Seasonals (Limited Availability)
Island Sunset Witbier ABV 5.7 - Witbier
Looking to the west on Atlantic Beach, you’ll see the amber sky burning over the ocean. Take a moment to reflect, and appreciate the spectacle of witnessing the water burst with color as the sun sinks below the horizon. Something many other beaches on our side of the states will never be able to experience. With a hazy shade of pale straw, evocative of our island’s sunset, this Belgian-style Witbier brings forth characters of subtle citrus and bready notes - finishing with a pleasant degree of creaminess from our use of raw wheat.
Sea Breeze Smoothie IPA ABV 6.2 – New England IPA
The feel of summer is in the air, and the taste of it is in your glass with our Sea Breeze Smoothie IPA. Leaning more towards a tropical mixed drink rather than a beer, this IPA is bursting with intense flavors – as it was brewed with passionfruit, mango, pineapple, coconut, vanilla and lactose. With every sip, you can hear the rhythm of the steel drums and truly feel the sea breeze carry you away.
