Lost Colony Brewery at Stumpy Point and Pub at Nags Head Waterfront

Located in Stumpy Point on Dare County mainland, this 10,000 sq ft facility houses the heartbeat of the brewery. We brew daily on our 30 barrel brewhouse to create the freshest and best English-style ales to be found on the coast. Paul Charron opened the beast in 2016, after years of brewing on a two-barrel system in the 300 sq. ft. pub in Manteo. Stumpy Point scored the perfect tri-fecta of potable water, space, and an awesome waterfront view. Today we are pushing out enough beer to keep over 100 local eateries stocked and ready to pour for the thirsty denizens of the OBX. It has never been a better time to ‘Get Lost.” Try our Tasting Room at Nags Head Waterfront.

We work hard. We deliver.THERE IS A STORY

Better than the beer arrives is the friendships made.. Bill and Cindy Sorokes graduated from St Bonaventures, me Siena College.There is a friendly rivalry between us.. So just now I caught Bonas versus Davidson.. The Sorokes could not get the game.. So I did just about texting play by play. Game went to overtime.. at the end of overtime it looked like davidson hit a three and was fouled.. Get the foul shot and win the game...Hold the horses. The refs had to review.. They called the 3 a 2 and in review they waived off the foul.. I message Bonas WINS..Bill and Cindy are probably jumping up and down-me-I'm checking my blood pressure... In a REAL PUB you make great friends. Ones you can rank on each other back and forth.. But never let it interfere with friendships... Lost Colony is really what Paul has always wanted IT IS A PUB...

“If you feed them it will attract more”.
“If you let one do it you have to let them all do it”
“Careful what you start”
We have all heard this advise before. It was going through my head when I heard a customer ask if he could leave the ceramic Lost Colony  mug he just purchased behind the bar so he could use it when he came in. When Dirt the bartender said “sure” all I thought was here we go. MUG CLUB.
That one mug became twenty then fifty finally topping out above one hundred and thirty. We had to build a room for them all. 
I cannot express how cool it is that that many people feel the Lost Colony Pub is their spot.  And how cool is it that Dirt and Kim have no problem going the extra yard to make this work. 
• Once again I am reminded that it’s everyone’s Pub not mine. I just drop off the beer and buy rounds. 
Thank you Jerry, Charlie, Uncle Ray and everyone else for starting this. The Mug room expansion is already planned.
Special shout out to Cookie Kim who came up with the Mug Room idea and the numbering system. She saw me bartend and knew I needed help.

Alewerks in Williamsburg, VA has a Mug Club membership. each Mug has a number on the bottom. At the end of the year you get to keep your mug and take it home. Good idea.

Mug clubs are the best! Gritty McDuff’s in ME numbers theirs and also hangs the mugs from hooks in the ceiling.

I usually bring my Lost Colony mug with me.

I can't wait to see this Friday! My and my mom's mugs are on that shelf somewhere.

Can’t wait to “find ours” on the shelf!!!

Need to add a couple to that room when I come down in June !

I like my new name 😉

We had a mug club in South Carolina at our hometown brewery. Loved it.

This. Is. Awesome.

Billiam Rutter awesome idea for HHBC…except I don’t know where you’d store the mugs

I love this!

Looks like I need to get a mug !

Very cool!!! 😎

Can I start a SOLO cup club Paul? In honor of Toby Keith... C'mon.... Please🙏 We've been rocking that plastic cup club for a while 😉

I definitely need a mug!

Great idea! I want one! 🙂🍻

I want my mug out of jail.. and where the hell did you move the jail to?...It should be given parole for good behavior- yeah really- I've been a good boy..

I'm from Ohio and have one but I bring it home and with me when on vacation!! We love it there and always come to see Dirt a few times!!

The sun did not shine, it was too wet to play, so we sat in the house all that cold, cold wet day. I sat there with Sally. We sat here we two and we said How we wish we had something to do. And then the beer arrived.

One day when he was out walking, he came to an open place in the middle of the forest, and in the middle of this place was a large oak-tree, and, from the top of the tree, there came a loud buzzing-noise.

A pubs walls should tell a history.

There is a photograph of my late father that has hung in the pub since the day we started brewing. He passed just as we opened. Paul Sr. would have given Steven Dirt Bateman a run for his money as best bartender. The photograph has generated many questions and is the motivation for every other military picture, badge, coin, and flag nailed to our walls. The photograph has an epic story. It also has a companion painting. That painting is the Grand Finale to the story. 

The painting has hung in my family’s Manhattan apartment for many years. And although their histories are intricately entwined, they have never shared the same wall. Till now. 
The companion painting is of my mother, Kathleen. When my parents drew up their will thirty-five years ago, I asked for only one thing. That painting.

 I inherited Kathleen’s portrait this past September.

 The painting was done on silk and seventy odd years took their toll. Terrified to even touch the frame, I took it to an art restoration specialist in New York. 
Today, much I am sure to their heavenly delight, Kathleen joins Paul Sr. on his honored perch in the pub for a Valentine’s date which, like their love, will last forever. 
Grá fíor, 
Slainte! Paul

Old School vs New School
Kegs vs Casks
Push vs Suck
Up until the 1930s draft beer was served by pulling a handle on a pump that would draw (suck) the beer up from the keg. Just like sucking on a soda straw. This why you can still hear people say, “pull me a pint”. There were several drawbacks to this. When beer is drawn out of the keg the empty space it leaves is filled with air. Air makes beer go stall. Kegs of beer had a short life span. Also, it takes longer to pump a pint.
By the 1960s modern kegs replaced the old pump with a co2 system. Carbon dioxide from a pressurized tank flows into the top of the keg pressuring the keg. Beer is then pushed up a pipe to the faucet. Air never touches the beer. The beer lasts longer.  
The drawback for some drinkers is beer has become much more carbonated.Image attachment

You should start a "folder" of required reading pre beer school 👍 😆

Always am learning things here!!!

Will you also be diving into serving temps and how a pint at one time was drawn from multiple kegs, not just one?

We had a couple pints with y'all back at Thanksgiving. Can't wait to get back when it's warm enough to sit outside...

Harken back to the days when the "other Side'wasn't even a twinkle in his folks eyes, when the brewmaster was a wee little one running around in shorts in the big city....Back in the days when tapping a keg was an art... Modern kegs have the rod already in place inside the keg. No fun and excitement at all.. You merely screw the top on and pump air.. Back in the day when a keg had to be properly iced and not shaken or stirred. Back when the rod was part of the tapping experience, where things could go wrong very fast.. The Olde Pros from the Great South Bay would screw on the top and then drive home the rod, quickly tightene up all fittings and celebrate the new keg....OR....things went terribly wrong and the rod was shot out of the keg like from a volcano.. Folks would then be forced to stand underneath the outflow with mouths wide open to save what they could of the contents of the keg.....I miss the olde daze...

We are opening the brewery up for tours this year. Sharon thought this would be a great idea. What she said was, “we didn’t build that tasting room in Stumpy Point just for you to do “quality control” by yourself. 
We truly do get a lot of requests for brewery tours. I have been opposed to them in the past for three reasons.
1) I talk too much. I love what we do and want to explain everything.  Taste everything.  Delve into the minutia of beer. Tours turn into marathons. Which leads to reason number…
2) We are perpetually shorthanded. Sometimes by design, sometimes by fate. Taking myself out of the brewing rotation can and does leave us shy of beers being in tanks. Finding GOOD help that wants to drive to Stumpy Point can be hard too. Speaking of location brings up reason number ….
3) Confusing the public. My fear has always been that no matter how hard I try to explain we have two locations people would only see that the production facility is twenty-four minutes away on the mainland and dismiss us as too far. Once on the beach tourists are loath to leave it. I don’t blame them. Never mind that our Nags Head tasting room is on the beach.  We would lose some business. 
Sharon says we will overcome all these obstacles. 
To kick off these tours we are doing our ever-popular beer school for Taste of the Beach. April 12th at 2pm.  Limited to thirty-five people. Bring a thirst folks we will be tasting lots of beer.

I don't know why you doubt her, she's never been wrong... 😁

Ellen Billmyer, We need to go do the tour when I’m there some time

I need that label on a t shirt

I think those are all valuable concerns and very real. The distance will be a hurdle for sure and you may be moving visits from one location to another plus not everyone is understanding that your restaurant has been sold so that actually adds another location to the thought process. Starting with events is probably a good plan. Hyper focus on times when their are an influx of traveling people. Bike week, Car shows, Airport events etc. where people aren't coming to the beach and being at the beach. Though I liked your original "Bike to the Brewery" idea. It's a 50 mile round-trip ride. Every week you'll have fresh riders that are looking for an adventure. And if you do it one day a week, like Wednesday, it would be very doable.

We need to get some seats for BRU-1… then you have a custom shuttle bus!

Bob Palmer

Uncle Raymond “Rails” approves

Tony Greene

Is there a flyer or something posted somewhere that provides more details on the beer school on April 12?

Love your Scotch Ale!

When we are in KDH we would love to goto Stump Point. And we would go see Dirt in Nags Head too!

Awesome! How do we get a reservation or tickets for beer school on 4/12?

Brian Morgan

We're in! The problem isn't the distance to Stumpy Point it's the distance back after all the beer tasting! 😊

I have always wanted to come see the brewery at Stumpy Point. Even if it's just a very short "here's the brewery" followed by a tasting and/or the option to buy a pint it would be nice to see where the beer comes from. For me, I would make it a very long afternoon - go to Stumpy Point then hit the Waterfront Beer Garden on the way back to the beach for more beer, a view and some pizza.

Get DIRT to lead tours at a premium price! Ka Ching!

My fridge in Greensboro

Looking for help at the brewery, I'm willing to drive to Stumpy Point. Will work for free to enhance my home brewing. Seriously.

I’d love to tour the Stumpy Point location. And hear your verbose explanations. But mostly taste the beer, which I think is exceptional. Stumpy Point makes it all that more interesting since there’s not much else there. Make tours by reservation only, then offer only limited dates and you’ll make the offer that much more tantalizing while reducing your workload.

Paul, partner with the drinking bus tour operators and let them do the driving from NH to SP & return .

Like the logo 👍

Is this the new place on the beach road

Love it! Brian Riggins

Tshirts, stickers, cups, etc.??

Damn you, Justin Bateman. 
I just know anytime his name pops up on my caller ID I am about to lose some beer.  This time it was The Dare Education Foundation’s Dueling Piano Fund Raiser. 
“They help teachers, Paul.”
“They help students, Paul.”
“They do scholarships, Paul.”
“They help schools, Paul.”
I have met Mormon Missionaries who were less enthusiastic. This IS a great group and have done a lot for our community so this was an easy yes. Check them out on line.
Damn, it’s Justin Bateman again. “There’s a veterans charity group in Hatteras Paul, would love your beer……..”  
Justin Bateman a great community volunteer(er?).

Today I’m enjoying my last Holy Hand Grenade until October unless you started shipping it to Richmond

Thanks for falling for that face of Justin Bateman’s! The party was a huge success and surely would not have been without your delicious beer! We appreciate you.

Glad to see Justin doing some good work. (Although I do like his podcast)

You do some amazing volunteer work. Im sure the community appreciate you.

☝️✌️🤟! Go Jussin!!!

School is in Session—Terroir

Next time you find yourself surrounded by wine connoisseurs discussing the “Terroir” of a cheeky little Bordeaux as they sip and spit their grape juice, drop this nugget of beer knowledge on them….

Terroir is how a particular region’s climate, soil and terrain affect the taste of wine. 
Terroir is why you can find the names of wines on a map. They are named after the region where that grape grows. 
Beaujolais, Bordeaux, Champagne and Campania are all examples.

Well, we can’t let wine drinkers have all the bragging rights. Beer has Terroir too. It is the water.
Beer can be associated with the area that has water conducive to the style.
India Pale Ales come from a town called Burton on the Trent in England. The water there is very hard. This water does well with hops flavors.
Dublin’s water is high in alkalinity. Too high for pale ales but perfect to balance the acid in roasted barley. That is why Dublin is known for stouts and porters. They use roasted grains in their recipes.
Pilsners come from Pilsen in the Czech Republic. The soft water there makes a very light lager.
This “Beer Terroir” is why we profile our beer’s water to match the area where the original style came from. 

We add minerals to Stumpy Points water till we get a perfect match to the region the beer comes from.
Charron Stout and Manteo Porter’s water matches Dublin’s.
Hatteras Red Ale’s water matches Cork Ireland. 
Kitty Hawk Blonde matches London.
Slainte, Paul

Much like merroir for oysters at the OBX!

Have you considered making a beer with local, read not salt, water?

This is so cool! I never knew that.

Thanks for the knowledge! Love the beer!

"it is the water" That line reminded me of Olympia... If you know, you know, and I sorry (I know too). Technically Olympia's slogan was "It's the Water" but close enough. And yes, water plays a huge role in the quality of beer ... I'm not going to mention names but I lived in the Yadkin Valley for a few years and let's just say the breweries there haven't figured this out and aren't worth visiting bc of it.

And this is the reason people should sign up for your sermon and beer tasting during Tast of the Beach..

Thanks! Neat info. 🙂🍻

Well, I can’t imagine there being any other brewery out there that has to shut down due to wind. 
Yesterday the wind was howling and the electrical lines were swaying! This can cause “brown outs” at the brewery. Brown outs are when only half the electricity reaches the building. This can cause damage to our equipment.
So, yesterday brewing ended and tasting commenced.

At least the day wasn't wasted, tasting can be productive. But with too much tasting, the taster may become wasted.....

Still a productive day!

Wish I had been there , I could have helped .

Darn tasting days... 😭 🍺 🤣

I guess they gotta brew faster over at Outer Banks Brewing Station in those conditions!
