About Us
Cape Fear Wine & Beer was established in 2003. Since then we have been striving to provide the best selection of beer and wine possible. We have around 300 different varieties of cans and bottles for you to choose from and 25 beers on tap.

We are also proud to provide an ever changing supply of cask ale. Our selection might be the fastest rotation of taps in the world. We do this to ensure that you are provided with the freshest and most limited beer releases. With so many beers to offer we try in earnest to make our beer list as accessible as possible. If you ever have any questions about a beer or a style please feel free to ask our knowledgeable bartenders who are Certified Cicerones. All that being said, we will be the first to tell you that good beer does not make a good bar. Good people make a good bar and perhaps the best thing about us is that you are sitting here reading this.

What We Don’t Do
We are not a corporate tap house that has 100 drafts as a novelty. We don’t use frozen glassware and do not serve ice cold beer. We absolutely do not promote beer snobbery of any kind, that kind of attitude only harms the craft beer industry as a whole. If you are looking for ice cold beer, a pong table, a chugging contest or a television to yell at, we would be happy to recommend another establishment.
