Wind Powered Outer Banks Brewing Station in Kill Devil Hills, NC

The First Windpowered Brewery in the USA - Outer Banks Brewing Station in Kill Devil Hills, NC

The Outer Banks Brewing Station is the first wind powered brewery in the United States! Also, this brewpub was the first business to produce wind power on the Outer Banks. It only took 5 years to get the permit for the windmill. This brewery pride ourselves in being innovative and conscious about the environment, while helping others learn as much as they can about renewable energy and sustainability.

Background of the Outer Banks Brewing Station
OBX restaurants OBX brewery The Outer Banks Brewing Station restaurant and brewery began as a concept in 1992 while the founders, Eric Reece and Aubrey Davis were Peace Corps volunteers alongside Tina Mackenzie in Thailand. Aubrey had grown up spending summers at his grandparents’ place on the Outer Banks, and felt it was the perfect place to start a brew pub. The Outer Banks Brewing station is now a staple in the OBX restaurant landscape.

Eric and Aubrey had developed an interest in home brewing, and Eric worked at a brewery with Scott Meyer in Berkeley, California. As their concept grew, they envisioned an environmentally friendly restaurant that celebrated the uniqueness of the Outer Banks and its history.

“Innovative Brewing, Environmental Consciousness”
The building itself, designed by architect Ben Cahoon and constructed by Carolina Beach Builders, is a modern interpretation of a turn-of-the-century Lifesaving Station. The bar represents the lifesaving boat, that pointed toward the sea, is ready to be deployed down the tracks to save the crew of a floundering ship. The tracks are made from beach bricks, part of a modern day casualty of the sea. Tina started collecting the beach bricks, and Eric, tired of moving them, had them sunk into the floor!

Brewmaster Scott Meyer
Another person instrumental in the brew pub is Scott Meyer, a master brewer out of Berkeley, California. Formerly a vintner, Scott is a national and international gold medal winner in brewing competitions. He will be on hand to answer any questions, and help you become experts in the finer points of beer and the brewing process. Recently, Scott's MeyerBock took home a gold medal at the 2014 World Beer Cup.
