In town visiting friends this last weekend, and this place (which I have been wanting to visit since it opened) is just down the street from their new house. Hurray for me! Stopped in the first night to grab a growler of something. They had about 10 taps for growler fills (no consumption on premise), all of which were standout beers. We grabbed a growler of Avery Maharajah. A guy and a girl were working at the time. Both were friendly, but not overly helpful. Great selection of bottles here. The Belgian section was what first stood out to me. Those aren't usually my 'cup of beer,' but I was impressed with what was available. Great to see a lot of different breweries represented than I can't find in the Northern Carolina. Prices were decent. And the vibe/presentation was very cool. I will definitely be back to this place when we visit again.

[Side note, if you are visiting and find yourself at this store, make your way across the street to Henry's Smokehouse for some BBQ. You will not regret it.]

Great employees, and get SUPER rare kegs every now and then, but not the hugest selection in the world. Most of their beers are widely available. the best part would be their growler selection which usually has at least a couple exclusive/hard to find brews. Very friendly staff and worth supporting, just not the best selection in the world.

Definitely the best craft beer spot in Greenville! Been shopping here since they first opened and have had nothing but top quality growler fills and fresh bottles. The owner and staff are super friendly and are always willing to help out with choosing the right brew or wine for whatever the occasion. With the addition of being able to drink a pint on site and enjoy a variety of food trucks for many lunch and dinners, Community Tap solidified themselves as the front runner in "spot to run by even though I've got plenty of craft brews at home" as well as the regular go to spot for picking up the weekly stash!

My favorite place in Greenville to soak up the suds. They always are bringing in great things to put on their line (right now they have Mephistopheles, they've had mexi cake, hopslam, etc) They also have a big selection of bottles both domestic and imports. AND they have a nice selection of wine and a wine tap, which is perfect for my girlfriend who isn't always wanting a beer like me. The space is roomy and open with a great bar and outside patio. They don't serve food but do a great job bringing in food trucks and you can bring your food inside. They also have a great app that constantly shows whats coming in and whats on tap. Wonderful spot!

This is a great beer store. One negative would be that it was a little under stocked. They do not offer a lot of beer, but the quality is there. They also have a really nice lounge/tasting room in the back to enjoy one of their dozen beers on tap. Growlers are also available, which is a huge plus.
This place is a little on the outskirts of town, not within walking distance of anything, so driving is a must. I will definitely be stopping back the next time in Gville.

A little out of the way on the north side of town(for a visitor anyway). Parking is easy though.
Away from the tourism of downtown, certainly a place to hang out with a more local flair.

Two guys working were eager to help.
Wish they stayed open later during the week however. Was staying in Simpsonville for work, had to hussle up just to get a half our visit. The seating area is what made this place different from the exchange downtown. Doesn't have the volume and breadth of selection, but plenty of interesting stuff. Belgian selection was large, which though not my thing, was impressive. When out of town I'm looking to find things I can't get, which there wasn't a ton of other than said Belgians. There draft selection for consumption/growlers was excellent, though another thing I've not been getting because a growler is just too much volume for me.

Great beer store near downtown Greenville. Ten growler stations with killer picks, very reasonably priced. They just started offering 32oz growlers, which makes it easier to try a wider variety, or try something higher in alcohol. Nice selection of bottles -- local breweries, Belgians, and special release stuff. Very nicely arranged store with plenty of space. Even some nice wine selections if you're into that. It's at least a 30 minute drive for me, but this is where I buy most of my beer these days. Great bunch of guys working there who are eager to help and offer suggestions.

TCT takes the lions share of credit for bringing quality growlers to Greenville. Mike and Ed are both top shelf beer and wine geeks and go way out of their way to get what you need. I love that they've got tastings from major and local craft breweries and are constantly expanding their selection-- they don't have the largest selection in town, but every bottle they stock is quality.

So if you're cruising through G'Vegas down 385- they are 1 mile from the Bilo Center. Stop in and you won't regret it!

Nice shop that opened up over the summer of 2010 right outside of Downtown Greenville. It is really easy to access and park, which is a huge bonus.

They have 10 rotating taps for growler fills, usually from $10 to $20 depending on the beer. Plenty of shelf space gives good offerings all across the board.

They usually do tastings every week or so as well. Mike and Ed are two really friendly guys who can make a recommendation if you need it, or just help serve you if you want.

I recommend the Community Tap and hope they do continue to do well for themselves and the craft beer scene here in Greenville.

Relaxed atmosphere and knowledgeable staff promote leisurely browsing of the stock at this fairly new establishment. I studiously browsed before and after a fine tasting session held at the back of this rather small venue. The bottle (and micro-brewery can) selection is moderate, and with few kept on refrigeration, but the variety and overall quality is quite good. Beer aficionados will have no trouble finding some favorites here as well as some untried brews. But there is more ...

The Tap also has taps -- i.e., a growler filling station. I was delighted to have my growler filled with Founders Breakfast Stout although there were other tempting options. The taps all seem to be on the exotic side, with the most familiar and relatively widely distributed brew I've seen on tap being Bell's Oberon. Apparently rapid turnover at these taps.

Recommended.
