Featured Plug In Site: Outer Banks Brewing Station

Charge your electric car while enjoying food and entertainment in the OBX

On December 17, 1903, Orville and Wilbur Wright made their historic first flight in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina. This is the 115th anniversary of the Wright Brothers’ famous achievement and a good day to feature the  electric vehicle charging stations at the Outer Banks Brewing Station which is located next to the Wright Brothers National Memorial.

The Outer Banks Brewing Station opened in March, 2001. Founders, Aubrey Davis and Eric Reese, incorporated environmental sustainability into the restaurant and brewery from the very beginning. The Outer Banks Brewing Station is the first wind-powered brewery in the United States. The same wind that made the conditions favorable for the Wright Brothers can now help power the EV charging stations that were installed as part of the Tesla destination charging program in 2017.

There are two Tesla connectors and one J-1772 charging station in front of the building that resembles a turn-of-the-century lifesaving station. You can’t miss the “Electric Vehicle Charging Station” sign. The restaurant/brewery is typical of an independent business that often features Tesla destination charging as an amenity for guests. This one is especially attractive given the commitment to sustainability demonstrated by the founders.

The Wright Brothers National Memorial in Kill Devil Hills is a must-visit for anyone going to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. If you need to charge and relax, the Outer Banks Brewing Station is on the Navigation screen or the Tesla Find Us Map or just look for the 92-foot tall wind turbine at Mile Post 8.5 on Rt. 158.
