Brewtäg: A of Flight and Beer

outer-banks-brewtag-logoWhat happens when you attach an empty to a homemade machine and launch it off a 20-foot deck? Come find out at the inaugural OBX Brewtäg on October 24, 2015 at The  in Nags Head, North Carolina.

A of flight and beer, Brewtäg is modeled after the whimsical and entertaining Red Bull Flutag, translated to “ day” in German. With OBX Brewtäg, the general premise is the same, although rather than human-powered flying machines, Brewtäg contestants will be competing to see who can launch and fly an empty 1/6 barrel the furthest.

The cost to compete at OBX Brewtäg is only $25 and the sky is the limit as to how creative your homemade flying contraption can be! Individuals and teams are welcome to participate. There are a few rules and regulations to follow, but this day is all about flight, beer and fun!

Admission to the event is  to the general public. A rather crafty selection of local and regional beer and food will be available for purchase that day. This -friendly event will also feature plenty of activities for the kiddos!

All proceeds from the event will benefit The Rogallo Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving the legacy of Dr. and his wife, Gertrude. Rogallo, a NASA scientist and inventor of the flexible wing, is considered the “father of hang gliding,” whose designs led to the creation of stunt kites, , and hang gliders flown today.
