Flying Machine Brewing Company

Tempest: 6% A Pale Ale fermented in oak with a Norwegian Farmhouse yeast then aged in stainless steel with guava and hopped with Citra.

Front Street Brewery

Festbier: 5.3% A refreshing golden lager with a pleasant toasted cereal flavor, brewed in the lighter and crisper style actually served in Munich during Oktoberfest (as opposed to the heavier amber style). It has more depth than a pilsner, but retains the easy drinkability.

Skytown Beer Company

Lavish: 6.4% Lavender pale ale brewed with East Kent Golding, then dry-hopped with centennial and conditioned on lavender. Subtle fruit notes with notes of baking spices; their 2019 fall seasonal.

Edward Teach Brewery

Save the Fest for Last: 5.4% This beer is a showcase for the balance of Munich malt and Nobel hops used for the traditional Oktoberfest beer style. The aroma offers rich bready malt notes, while the flavor profile is balanced with floral & spice character from the Hallertau hops. Finish is clean and crisp off the palate.

Broomtail Craft Brewery

ILM: 7.5% This new IPA has more traditional hops and bittering from some old favorites like Cascade, Centennial, Chinook, and Citra. Releases Friday, September 27th!

Waterman’s Brewing

Goseway: 4.8% This tart, lime gose was made with mouthwatering Wrightsville Beach sea salt provided by Sea Love Sea Salt Co. A taste of wheat provides this tangy ale with a smooth, medium-bodied mouthfeel. This delicious gose is sure to remind you of your favorite salty, summer days!
