Right on the way to Wrightsville beach. Beer seems to be the focus here. Which is nice to see. Really nice selection. Lots of bombers and six packs. One case of 12oz singles which would be the one area that could be improved- but really, given the size of the building this is better than you could expect. The majority of the beer is in cold storage too which is also great, especially since it's so hot down here. Prices are very fair. The people were also helpful and very friendly- definitely makes me want to head back on the way home, if not before.

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.

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.

Lighthouse is a breeze to find just after you cross the inland waterway bridge going onto Wrightsville, take an immediate right and a left. You cannot miss the brightly painted store.

Everything for the most part is in the cold case. Sixers and mix packs as well as a small single bottle selection. At first I started to put the selection at a 4.5 but opted for the 4.0 since not everything is represented, however enough things were there, a few that still haven't made it further inland, that this would be a destination if in the Wilmington area. The prices were some of the best in the state. Westmalle Tripel at $9 is $2-3 less expensive than anywhere else.

The service was attentive and quick and the quality due to the refridgerated selection was high. Give this place a whirl.

This place is awsome.I felt it only fitting to do this review since the laws have changed in our great state of NC from 6.0% to 15.0% Upon arrival (1st right after the drawbridge) you are greated by wall coolers which stock a large assortment of various beers from around the world....finally!!!

Folks who know what they are doing stay in this area right inside the door (also across from the checkout counter for those who need to ask questions i suppose) The selection was greater than some others in town. right now it is really hard to find a lot of the good beers in the state because as soon as they hit the shelfs there gone, but i caught them after a delivery, and the place keeps good hours 10pm weekdays and 12pm weekends.

Cape Fear Beer and Wine is also in town, across town at that. The staff was really helpful and i will continue to be a loyal customer. Great lil beer store for a awsome lil town. Check it out if your in the area you will not be dissapointed

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.
