Just in time for summer another microbrew is opening on the Outer Banks. Northern Outer Banks Brewing is the brainchild of Carova resident Michael Cherry—and yes, there are people who live in Carova.

Brewing his beers in Corolla—the brewery is located between Cosmos and Metropolis on Old Stoney Road—Cherry has concentrated on distributing his beers more rather than creating a brew pub.

That’s a bit a departure from the other three local microbrews. The Outer Banks Brewing Station in Kill Devil Hills, Weeping Radish in Jarvisburg and Lost Colony Brewing in Manteo feature great food to go with their beers. 

On his first run, Cherry is producing four beers: Corolla Lager, Penny Hill IPA, Swan Beach Honey Pale Ale and Corolla Honey Saison.

As things get warmer in Corolla an businesses open up, beer will be available at the brewery. According to information on their website, seating will be availabe and food can be purchased from Cosmos Pizza during the day or from Metropolis after 5:00 p.m.

Northern Outer Banks Brewing is already distributing their beer, so anyone who wants to try their brews can do so now. 

Butcher Block, Uncle Ike’s, Ike’s Bites, Currituck Club Golf Course, Cosmos Pizza, and Fat Crabs, have the beers on tap, although Corolla hours are spotty at this time of the year.

The Black Pelican, Hurricane Mo’s, Mulligans, Lucky 12 and The Pier House Restaurant should have the beer by the can. Or four packs are available from Manteo to Corolla.
