Brand new store added to the Greenvile area to fill the void of the color named store. Selection was impressive including 3 of the Mikkeller single hop. Shelves were well organized and arranged alphabetically to save tired brain cells from looking around. Growler section was stocked with a great selection for to go beer. There was also a nice wine selection of wine to add to the selection. I am told Ed can answer all your wine questions. After talking to Mike, I feel their selection of beer is headed in the unbelievable direction. Hopefully his wish list will become our reality. Great opening, Great store, and good luck,

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!

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.

One of the nicest beer shops I'v been to. The growler selection is solid as is the bottled. Best of all is the service that you get in addition to the beers. The people here now there beers and are very amenable to giving customers what they want. Prices are a little towards the high end but for the craft selection that they do have I would say that they are completely reasonable. I also appreciate the fact that they are on the forward edge of seasonable beers and the fact they have some solid wines as well. Truly a one stop shop for great beers and a solid addition to Greenville and a must go to.

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.

Just got back from a family vacation in Greenville, SC and had to post a review on this fine establishment. At the suggestion of another BA member, I worked this into our schedule and dropped by early Saturday afternoon to check out the selection. The place has a nice atmostphere, solid bottle selection, and an equally solid filling station. (Only wish I could have grabbed a growler full of Pumking. Have to love being mid vacation and on a schedule). Picked up a variety of beers from Ballast Point, Allagash, Mikkeller, and Southern Tier. Customer service was excellent as well. After talking with Ed for just a few minutes I felt like a regular. He was able to answer my questions and offer suggestions on some additional brews to try out. I would regularly frequent this place if I lived closer and look forward to the chance to go back and visit. I highly recommend this place to any beer enthusiast.

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 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.
