A celebration of flight and beer, OBX Brewtag is modeled after the whimsical and entertaining Red Bull Flugtag, which translates from German to “Flying day.” With OBX Brewtag, the general premise is the same; however, rather than human-powered flying machines, Brewtag contestants compete to see who can launch and fly an empty 1/6 keg barrel the farthest.
The cost to compete at OBX Brewtag is only $50 and the sky is the limit as to how creative your homemade flying contraption can be! Individuals and teams are welcome.
The Beer Garden offers a wide selection of local and regional craft beer, and food will be available for purchase that day. This family-friendly event will also feature plenty of activities for the kiddos in the Kid Zone!
The 5th Annual OBX Brewtag offers a VIP experience, which includes an event T-shirt, commemorative pint glass, and specialized tastings with various craft breweries. Supplies are limited!
All proceeds from the OBX Brewtag benefit The Rogallo Foundation. The Rogallo Foundation was created to honor Francis and Gertrude Rogallo, inventors of the flexible wing; to preserve their priceless records, artifacts, and research; to interpret their incredible story and protect this legacy of free flight for millions of people in all the nations of the world; and to stimulate and support research and education in Aerodonetics, the science of gliding and soaring flight and low speed aerodynamics. All proceeds will be used to build a museum to feature all of Rogallo's innovative work, designs, history, and advancements since its development.
