The Lighhouse Beer and Wine is kind of hard to find if you don't see it know where it is, but it is located on the right, right past the bridge leading to Wrightsville Beach from Wilmington. Walk in and beer fridges are lining the wall on the right. Filled with single bottles as well as 6 packs of tasty stuff, from local to regional and all around. Selection is probably as good as you are going to find in North Carolina. Sorry bout the 6.0 ABV law. The people working there knew what they had, and new what they were talking about.

GREAT SPOT IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO KICK BACK AND SLURP DOWN A COLD ONE OR GRAB A KEG OF SOME SIERRA NEVADA FOR YOUR GATHERING. NICE AND INFORMATIVE WORKERS ALTHOUGH SOME COULD ACT A LITTLE MORE LIKE THE CARE TO HELP ME. OVERALL A GOOD LOCATION WITH GOOD COLD BEER.

Thanks to BA for having this place on the radar. Went to Wilmington on a business trip for a conference, couldn't pass this up after reading about it online. It was pretty easy to find, right after the intracoastal bridge on the right. Rather small place but had plenty of selection. Grabbed a Uinta Detour Double India Pale Ale, a six pack of Founders Centennial IPA, some Left Hand's, Terrapins, and a mixer of Great Divide. Great selection of 22's, where is this place when I vacation in South Carolina!

quality: Checked some dates...everything seemed ok. No telling how quickly the beers are moved, but everything is probably fine. Almost all the beers are refrigerated, key in this warm climate.

service: Good service. I am always asked if I need some help and the guys are pretty knowledgeable.

selection: Damn good selection, top two in the Wilmington area for sure, and the only place to go if you're on this side of town. Pretty much all NC micros that are distributed outside of their immediate regions and a huge selection of other American micros. I picked up some cans of Brooklyn Lager to take to the beach, but the selection goes way beyond that. There's even a decent singles selection.

This place is awesome. Great selection on imports, Belgians, micros from across the country and the NC beers were well-represented! The girl was helpful and they had a large selection of singles that were all $1.75 each. Lots of cold selections. This place is what a beer store should be! Easy to find. I mentioned BA while I was there also. Great selection of bombers also. I would shop here evry day if I lived in the Wilmington/Wrightsville area. They made sure I had a six-pack holder to carry my beers. This placed also sells wine but beer seems to be the dominant product and the first thing I saw when I walked in was a shelf with " New Arrivals " and it included Rochefort trappist among others.

Was in town for a few days visiting some friends. Headed to the beach on Saturday, and swung by here on our way back out. Location is nice as it is right off the main road that takes you to the beach. Small little shop, that feels a bit cramped if there are more than 5-6 people in there, but that is a small price to pay for the massive selection! Coolers line the walls filled with all sorts of chilled goodies. The center is shelf after shelf of more great beer. It would be impossible for even the most distinguishing of palates to not find something here they would like. The prices I saw were comparable to any other bottle shop I frequent. A couple of guys working there at the time were friendly and helpful. I visited with my wife and daughter so unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to visit the Beer Garden, but next time for sure. Great place that I highly recommend!
