Another beer dinner is coming to Floyd’s 1921 Restaurant in Morehead City. Throughout the year, we invite breweries to our patio to share their lineup of craft brews with you, but this time, we’re shaking things up. Floyd’s is bringing a variety of seasonally-inspired brews together for a beer dinner on the patio alongside a perfectly paired menu from Chef Floyd. Take a look at the upcoming selection, courtesy of Empire Distributing.
Oktoberfest Beer Dinner on the patio starts at 6 pm on Friday, October 14th! Visit or call the restaurant to reserve your tickets for $30.
Sam Adams Oktoberfest: It’s a tradition that’s been around since 1810. Sam Adams Oktoberfest is an absolute classic, blending hearty malts for a deep, smooth flavor with notes of sweet caramel.
5.3% ABV, 16 IBUs
Weihenstephaner Festbier: Embrace the taste of fall. This full-bodied, hoppy lager was brewed for fall festival season, filled with incredibly rich flavor.
5.8% ABV, 26 IBUs
Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest: No two brews are exactly the same. Each year, Sierra Nevada partners with a different German brewer to explore a new approach to the Oktoberfest brew. This year, you can look forward to rich malt complexity and a spicy hop, courtesy of Germany’s Bamberg Brewers.
6.0% ABV, 30 IBUs
Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier: Hello, tongue twister! This golden yellow wheat beer has a surprising banana flavor and clove aroma, pairing perfectly with seafood. And what better way to celebrate – October is National Seafood Month!
5.4% ABV, 14 IBUs
Blind Squirrel Belgian Tripel: Tripel is brewed using a simple malt bill and only a few hop additions. That isn’t to say this brew isn’t complex – people who’ve had the pleasure of trying Tripel have noted hints of raisin, plums, apricots, tangerines, and spice.
9.0% ABV, 34 IBUs
Don’t forget, this October, Chef Floyd debuts a special Oktoberfest menu available in the restaurant throughout the month. The Oktoberfest Beer Dinner will feature dishes from the special menu. Come back to see us during October to try some of your favorite menu items!

Did you know that May is National Bike to Work Month? Our country has seen a 40% growth in bicycle commuters since 2000, and we’re on board with the new trend. With this perfect weather on the Crystal Coast, there’s never been a better excuse to kick it on two wheels. Why draw the line at your workday commute? We have 4 reasons you should bike anywhere and everywhere this summer.
- You’ll save money. Have you noticed fuel prices creeping back up as we approach summer time? Even if you’re traveling just a few blocks from home, the costs add up. Hopping on a bike can cost you exactly $0.
- Avoid traffic jams. You might spend upwards of 25 minutes per day commuting to work or running your daily errands. What a bore! Pedal down the scenic route next time.
- Bike commuting improves your health. On average, bicycle commuters lose 13 pounds in their first year of cycling. It’s also a low impact activity that won’t give your joints a beating.
- We’ll make it worth your while. Starting this May, Floyd’s wants you to take two wheels to the restaurant. On Wednesdays and Sundays, bike to Floyd’s and you’ll receive 10% off our entire tapas menu. Small plates and an active lifestyle mean happy, healthy customers!
Bike to work this Wednesday, then pedal over to Floyd’s for 10% off tapas lunch, or grab your friends this Sunday Funday for a ride down the waterfront ending with drinks and tapas on the patio. Share this Facebook post with friends to get your new favorite trend started! Tires & Tapas lasts all summer long. Don’t forget about live music on Fridays and Saturdays on the patio!
