There was a time on the Outer Banks when the sport you watched in bars was the interaction of patrons who had had just a wee too much to drink.Yep, bar fights. That's the Outer Banks of yesteryear. Now that we've become such a vacation destination, it's all gussied up a bit. Now the Outer Banks has real, honest to goodness sports bars with TVs at every angle broadcasting any sport you may wish to watch. Of course, most bars have a TV or two, but we're talking about the true sports bars -- the ones that feature 10 or more screens and that specialize in wings, burgers and beer too. And, speaking of beer, in the past few years, the Outer Banks has started to make a name for itself for local brews. We now have three brew pubs (including the one in Currituck County that started in Manteo) that boast their own concoctions...and boast they should! These beers are delicious -- in our humble local opinion, much tastier than the shipped from afar national brands. You can enjoy them on-site or take home mini kegs to sip on when you're remembering how great your Outer Banks vacation was. The combination of brew pubs and sports bar along with the inevitable camaraderie that happens is a fun way to spend an evening on the Outer Banks.
