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.

Good beers, good selection, lots of beer events.

Super nice girls working here, the place is a bit of a dive, and the picture makes it look much nicer on the outside than it actually is on the inside, but it's basically right on the ocean, but it's understandable that it looks a bit drab. The ladies let us sample the drafts and we found a couple of beers to try. Their selection was good but a bit dated, they let us know a couple other places to try in the Wilmington area and were nice about helping find things, good place to go hunting for good beers.

I shopped here 4 times during my one week stay in wrightsville beach. My wife and friends bought wine. I bought a bunch of beer to drink now and some to bring home. Exceptional service. Got help selecting beers that I could not get at home. I am a beer snob and would recommend this place to anyone looking for quality beer and wine.

In town and decided to stop in since this seemed to be the go to place for craft beer. Very tight, cramped space. However, the selection obviously makes up for it. Great beers on tap and you can get a growler to go if you want. Excellent bottle selection and a fridge full of beers. Their local NC beer selection is what impressed me. The prices were fair. But, if you get any singles, it's somewhat costly if you are trying to do a mix 6. I'll definitely stop back in next time I'm in the area.

My go-to place. They always have something I want, the prices are fair, and the service is phenomenal. 5s across the board.

Love that they have beers on tap while you peruse the bottle selection. Great variety of bottles and about 8 taps or so- can get growlers.

Lighthouse is an explosive beer and wine market that not only offers the best of the best beers/wines but man can they put on a kick A** beer festival! Jason the owner is very nice but sometimes i feel badly for the man because he is always so busy! The staff is great and very knowledgeable about beers. I tried to get a job there when i received a text they were hiring (not to mention i have given him multiple resumes over the years! LOL), I also supplied him with some Heady topper and Pliny for his famous VORACIOUS VIP tasting but sadly i never even got a call about an interview.. Overall, this place is awesome, great knowledge, great selection and friendly! If your in Wilmington and don't stop in, it should be considered a crime!

Took a detour here on the way to Cherry Grove SC and are really glad we did. Great selection and service. We were mainly looking for NC beer and some Bells Two Hearted that we can not get in NY. There was a really good selection of NC beers. We could not have been happier. Got a case of the Bells, bombers of French Broad, Olde Hickory, Stone 16th Anniversery, tried an Aviator?.

Prices were all reasonable when compared to what we would have paid at home. Cheaper actually.

The guy that helped us could not have been more friendly and knowledgeable. Wish we asked his name, cause he was great. The store started to get a little busier as we were finishing up, so we kinda wanted to get out of the way. He will probably remember us as the Heady Topper couple.

It is small, but not lacking in selection in any way. Well worth the small detour for us and we will add it as a must stop on all of our future vacations.
