Our Beers

The Lost Colony Brewery in downtown Manteo specializes in British and Irish style beers. We use Marris Otter malt as our base and then add various combinations of Black Patent, Brown malt, Crystal malt, and Roasted Barley depending on the individual beer. Fuggles, East Kent Golding and Challenger are the hops we use. Our brew house is a 2 Barrel RIMS system filling two barrel fermenters.
