A great little find in Greenville.

Located on the edge of downtown, a short drive from Barley's. A little tough to find, especially at night, but worth the effort.

6 taps available for growler fills. Stone VE, Ballast Point Red Eye, Dales Old Chub and Gordon among the choices when I was there. They do a good job of keeping the website up to date with the drafts available.

Excellent selection of bombers and good selection of sixers. Store is not large, but they make up for the smaller selection with quality.

Service is stellar. Ed and Mike know their beer and are happy to make suggestions about new offerings. Also happy to order anything they can get their hands on for you.

Didn't know what exactly to expect when I stopped in, but really glad I did. I get to Greenville about 6 times a year and this will be a regular stop for me on every trip.

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.

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.]

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.
