Visit Ocracoke this Fall
Crisp fall weather is finally beginning to arrive on Ocracoke. What better time to take a trip down the Outer Banks or across the Pamlico Sound for a visit to Ocracoke Island.
Home to many unique businesses. One Ocracoke business that has quickly earned a loyal following is 1718 Brewing Ocracoke, Ocracoke’s home town brewery.
Officially opened in October 2017, 1718 Brewing Ocracoke is the dream of owners Garick and Jacqui Kalna.
1718 Brewing features rotating taps and seasonal beers. Longing for a trip to Ocracoke? How about a beer called Sun Days, Ramp 72, or Notorious F.I.G.?
The Ocracoke Beer Decision Can be Easy
Can’t decide which beer to try? You can order in 4, 8 or 16 oz. Pick your preferred size to determine your favorite. Here’s another option, a Flight featuring four 5 oz. samples.

Food that goes Incredibly Well with Beer
Within “the brewery” you will find not only great beer exclusively brewed here on Ocracoke but also delicious food.
Plum Pointe Kitchen with owner/chef Aaron Gallaher at the helm serves up small plate, appetizers, and specials. Local seafood is often featured on the menu. Don’t miss Steak Night.
There is nothing quite like a really great beer brewed right here on Ocracoke paired with a group of friends, family and the family dog. Out front, there's outdoor seating that welcomes you to bring your pup, 1718 Brewing is dog friendly!
Looking toward the Future
After just four years of being open, 1718 has now expanded their brewing capacity to meet the demand. They have expanded from 40 barrels of fermentation to 100 barrels of fermentation capacity to keep up with the demand for their canning line which will be in cans by late Winter or early Spring. Look for 1718 in cans soon!
That means hard work and the brewers deserve a rest. 1718 will be taking their short mid-Winter break. If you are planning a visit to the brewery after December, in the depth of Winter, be sure to give them a call first (252) 928-2337.
