This is our favorite beer place. Constantly changing drafts and always something unique that we haven't tried before. Knowledgable bar staff. Don't expect to get a cheap beer...but expect to get a really good beer. Got outside seating, great for dogs.

I was impressed with the beer selection, I liked the range from local features to the vast amount of imports. I thought the bartender was attentive and helpful. The crowd was younger than I would usually hang out with at an establishment, but no one seemed to care. I thought it was a great time!

To be fair the beer selection is great. That is Cape Fear Wine and Beer's only saving grace. The service is terrible, and if you do not look the part of the hipster clientele you will wait forever to be served. None of the beers have prices one them, you will not receive an itemized receipt, and if the surly owner and head bartender has the opportunity to give you a different, more expensive beer that sounds sort of close to what you ordered he will be happy to do so. Don't worry, he will be off to serve someone else before you can object. There is very little seating, so typically on Friday or Saturday night you will be standing, packed-in, shoulder to shoulder with everyone else. It has been quite a while since this was the cool, neighborhood bar it still pretends to be and has become a victim of its own success. Try Satellite if you want a more chill neighborhood bar experience, or the Blue Post if you want a better selection of bar games. Both have a less-extensive but still very good beer list.

Great selection of beer and wine, still a regular because I am a downtown local and my friends come here constantly, but it's just a bunch of pretentious hipsters, so just beware the bartenders are all jerks.

We went to this bar with some friends last weekend. It had a really relaxed, chill atmosphere. They had a great beer selection, but I wish they had some kind of food as well.
