Atlantic Beach Blonde ABV 4.7 – 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.
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.
Breakwater Coffee Brown Ale ABV 5.3 - English Brown Ale
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.
Seasonals (Limited Availability)
Macon Waves Double IPA with Strawberries and Guava ABV 8.5 – Imperial IPA
For eleven long hours, cannons bombarded the fort's shore in 1862. Only until the end, surrender was never a thought as an overwhelming force was laid upon those Macon waves. As a tribute, we brewed this Double India Pale Ale. This variant of our fruited DIPA is brewed with rye, guava and local strawberries from Garner Farms in Newport, NC - in addition to a Loral dry hop.
Red, Wheat and Blue ABV 5.5 – Pale American Wheat Ale
Our Red Wheat and Blue is a celebration to America on its day of Independence. Hazy because of its unfiltered nature, this beer is bright and flavorful. Starting crisp and tangy, this summer ale will follow through with mix of zesty orange and earthy berry fruitiness while finishing with a creamy, yet dry finish.
