Annual OBX Brewtäg
A celebration of flight and beer, OBX Brewtag is modeled after the whimsical and entertaining Red Bull Flutag, translated to “flying day” in German. With OBX Brewtag, the general premise is the same, although rather than human-powered flying machines, Brewtag contestants will be competing to see who can launch and fly an empty 1/6 keg barrel the furthest.
The cost to compete at OBX Brewtag is only $150 and the sky’s the limit as to how creative your homemade flying contraption can be! Individuals and teams are welcome.
A rather crafty selection of local and regional beer and food will be available for purchase that day. This family-friendly event will also feature plenty of activities for the kiddos
Proceeds from the Outer Banks Brewtäg benefit The Rogallo Foundation. The Rogallo Foundation was created to honor Francis and Gertrude Rogallo, inventors of the flexible wing; preserve their priceless records, artifacts, and research; interpret their incredible story; and protect this legacy of free flight for millions of people in all the Nations of the world; to stimulate and support research and education in aerodonetics the science of gliding and soaring flight and low speed aerodynamics.
