In what can only be described as a fascinating and different way to enjoy beer, The Outer Banks BrewTag answers the burning question, “Can beer kegs fly?”

Postponed from its original October 3 date because of rain, the Kitty Hawk Kites sponsored event is back on track for this Saturday, October 24.

Here’s what it’s all about: 25 teams compete for top honors in a contest that pits mankind agains a 1/6 keg of beer. Perhaps if it was fastest to empty, it would be a simple contest with no clear winner. But BrewTag, sponsored by Kitty Hawk Kites, is all about flight and the object is to create an object that will fly. Held at the Outer Banks Event Site in Nags Head, there’s plenty of room for flight and so expect aeronautical engineers to try their hand at design.

The event starts at noon and runs until 6:00 p.m. when the festivities move to the Outer Banks Brewing statiion. Live music is on tap, as well as beer.

Another postponed event coming up next weekend is the Dare County Arts Council’s 26th Annual Artrageous celebration of the arts in the community. Held at Rec Park in Kill Devil Hill, this is one of the best family friendly event around.
