Stopped in on a Thursday afternoon with hardly anyone on the place, which was ideal for us to sample the many beers they serve. Quite a good variety on tap and even more in bottles in the coolers behind the bar. Great, knowledgeable bartenders behind...More

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

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.
