I never pick a specific beer by name, because there are too many to choose from! I can ask the bartenders to pick something based on a flavor profile or quality that I'm wanting in a beer, and they get it spot on every time....More

Fun bar with nice retro stools, outdoor seating and big selection of micro brews. You can also buy packaged microbrews from a large selection of breweries.

Went in and sat at the bar and the bartender didn't even look up. Waited for a few minutes then finally left. We got to see a few Townies trying to look cool though. Much better places on Front Street.

Cape Fear Wine and Beer has a excellent variety of beer--especially draft beer (sorry, I no nothing about wine). The bartenders have a great knowledge of the selections offered. The only downside is that there is no food offered, so eat before you go.

We were enticed by the presence of a pool table and my wife's incurable desire to "show me how it's done." However, I was impressed with the selection of beer. They had a wide variety of drafts and a huge number of bottled beers to...More

It seems like most ever bar I go into I ask the bartender to recommend a beer based on a few beers I'm fond of, and too many times I am met with a blank stare and raised eyebrows. Imagine my delight as the bartender...More

Not a tourist spot at all. Known for the wide range of beer options (please don't ask for a Bud Lite) the owners are typically behind the bar themselves. People aren't perfect and they have made some errors over the years but have always acted...More

Popped in for a drink on a rainy Saturday. Good service. They were voted Best Beer Selection and I wouldn't argue with that!
