    Fishtowne and Clawsons are very good places to visit and drink a brew!

    I visited your county over the last summer and live in a big city and was surprised to see that your area had many good craft beer places along with live music. While we were there we visited the Mill Whistle, Fishtowne, and Clawsons Restaurant. It’s not common to see smaller towns with such variety.

      It is important to remember that our small town actually grows by three times the amount of people in the Spring, Summer, and Fall months so we population wise actually turn in to a moderate sized county for 9 months out of the year. There are craft beer breweries in just about every town within the county to include Emerald Isle, Atlantic Beach, Morehead City, Newport, and Beaufort. I think there is even one in Salter Path now.
