We recently went to the Outer Banks in North Carolina for a much need rest and relaxation trip. Mrs. Fin and I own a time share there that we had visited in several years. I invited my employees and family to come down and check it out and we spent most of a week there. The time share called the Outer Banks Beach Club and we will be happy to give it to you if you would like. Actually, it’s a pretty nice place and a quiet time of year there and a good time was had by all.

The time share is in Kill Devil Hills around milepost 9 on the beach. Interestingly the name derives from drinking so much it would “Kill the Devil” , how appropriate!

We arrived on Saturday and decided to jump right into the beer scene. First stop, Outer Banks Brewing Station for some wind powered beer. When they say they serve green beer, they don’t mean the color.

Brittany points out the entrance sign. I had a sampler of the beers and Brittany had a stout. This one looks rich and chocolaty!

Brittany liked the stout. It was rich and chocolaty.

The beer was pretty good but they need an IPA, summer or not! I did enjoy the Olsch which was of the Kolsch style. I’ve found that style to be pretty good even though I am a Pale ale and IPA kinda guy. We actually took a growler of it back to the condo with us. They had a pretty cool shaped growler, i bought one even though i have several already.

We didn’t eat there but the food looked pretty good. They had the usual beach fare, some seafood and burgers with fries covered in Old Bay seasoning.

Plenty of easy parking, a nice play area for the kids and of course, the windmill photo op! Definitely a must see if you go to the beach this year.
