Outer Banks Brewtäg 2016 is set for October 22 @ 12:00 pm – 6:00 pm at the Soundside Event Site in Nags Head ( We are within walking distance ! )

Join us for a celebration of two really great things, flight & beer!

OBX Brewtäg is modeled after the whimsical and entertaining Red Bull Flutag, which translates into “flying day” in German. With OBX Brewtäg, the general premise is about the same, although rather than human-powered flying machines, Brewtäg contestants compete to see who can launch and fly an empty 1/6 keg barrel the furthest. Watch kegs fly! Flights will launch every 30 minutes from 12:15pm -4:15pm at the Outer Banks Event Site in Nags Head.

The cost for participants to compete at OBX Brewtäg is only $25. The sky is the limit as to how creative your homemade flying contraption can be! Individuals and teams are encouraged to Register Online.

Public admission to the event is FREE and a rather crafty selection of local and regional beers plus tasty food will be available for purchase from select Outer Banks restaurateurs. This family-friendly event will also feature awesome LIVE MUSIC and plenty of activities for your kiddos!
