    OBX Brewtag 2020

    Start Date: 10/23/2021 | End Date:
    Start Time: 12 PM | End Time: 6 PM

    A celebration of flight and beer, OBX Brewtäg is modeled after the whimsical and entertaining Red Bull Flutag, translated to “flying day” in German. With OBX Brewtag, the general premise is the same, although rather than human-powered flying machines, Brewtag contestants will be competing to see who can launch and fly an empty 1/6 keg barrel the furthest.

    The cost to compete at OBX Brewtag is only $50 and the sky’s the limit as to how creative your homemade flying contraption can be! Individuals and teams are welcome.

    A rather crafty selection of local and regional beer and food will be available for purchase that day. This family-friendly event will also feature plenty of activities for the kiddos!
