A New Look

Weeping Radish, North Carolina’s first microbrewery and the Outer Banks welcome wagon for beers, butchery, and provisions is ready to set the trend in historic brewing in North Carolina with a bold new look


From growing our own barley to butchering our own meats, we bring intentionality to the decisions we make to ensure quality of product, service, and experience. This means considering our impact on our neighbors, community, and local economy. For us, this is the only way to do it.


Following our maverick roots set down by Uli Bennewitz, we continue to follow his passion and explore what is possible out of a humble farm brewery. Balancing the well-respected traditional Bavarian ways of doing things with new methodologies, we let a spirit of inquiry guide the future of Weeping Radish.


We believe beer to be the great equalizer and uniter of folks from all walks of life. We value the power of a great meal to better connect ourselves to family or friends, and take seriously the role we have to connect that meal to the earth and our environment.


As a proud Outer Banks local business, it is our responsibility to ensure our doors can welcome all walks of life. To us, that requires a dedication to the quality of our products while providing those at a fair price.

Tropical, juicy East Coast hops collide with the piney, floral hops of the West Coast in a whirlwind of flavor imparted by an expertly curated combination of hops.

It’s the best of both worlds in one deliciously balanced IPA.
