Currituck OBX Spotlight: Weeping Radish Brewery and Restaurant

August 6, 2012
The Currituck area is always buzzing with activity, but if you’re local you know a few weeks ago it really hit high gear when Food Network host Guy Fieri rolled into town in his cherry red ’68 Camaro. When Guy comes town it only means one thing: he’s hungry, and he’s looking for a good place to eat. We are thrilled that he took the time to stop at a local institution, The Weeping Radish, and film a segment for Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. The show featuring the Radish won’t air for a few months yet, but you can still come in and enjoy some of the finest microbrew and juicy brats on the coast!

At The Weeping Radish, nobody cries about leaving hungry! Here you’ll find a tempting menu of Old World specialties – bratwurst, liverwurst (with a sweet potato kick), kielbasa, and all the sides. If you’re renting a house this summer, stop by and pick up a grill box to go. All meats are nitrate free, ordered straight from the farms to guarantee you the best cuts for your backyard BBQ.

Of course, there’s the beer. Brewed on site are local favorites Corolla Gold, Fest, and Black Radish, and even a root beer for the kids. Did you know, too, that the Radish is the oldest microbrewery in the state? That’s because before the restaurant opened, it wasn’t legal for restaurants to sell their own brews. Radish owner Uli Bennewitz, a master brewer from Bavaria, actually helped change state law so he could open the brewpub!

If you’re in town this summer and looking for a nice cold brew to cap off a great day at the beach, definitely come to the Weeping Radish. Look for it on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives this fall!
