Outdoor 76

Written By: Bre Humphries

EVERY OUTDOOR ENTHUSIAST knows the right gear is key for conquering the Great Outdoors. And while you can read reviews online or click quickly to make a purchase, nothing beats tactile research and expert advice when you’re choosing products for your next adventure.

Outdoor 76 in Downtown Clayton is equipped with everything you need for hiking, camping, and exploring Mother Nature from trusted brands like Columbia, Patagonia and Prana. But it’s more than an outfitter—with a mini bar featuring beer on tap (many locally brewed!) it’s like a little watering hole for like-minded individuals to sip a cold one, swap stories and seek advice from knowledgeable store associates while they shop. Regularly scheduled events make this a great gathering spot for the community. Mark your calendar for live music by Rainbows End on June 24, a Beer & Donut tasting with neighboring Farmhouse Donuts on July 8, and a group hike on the nearby Bartram Trail followed by a pint of craft beer back at the store on July 16.
