    There is a decent place on the "main drag". It is a small wine and beer shop (can't remember the name). That's about it on the island, but should be good enough for most folks. I always found enough there to keep the fridge full of good stuff

    Yep that's it! It is a small shop on the left side of the road as you drive into Oak Island. They even had a craft beer event when we went last year.

    Ps - the selection at the Food Lion in town is terrible!

    I have a house at Oak Island and grape and ale is the only place I go when I am down there for craft.

    Don't know much about that area, but if you're coming into Wilmington: Cape Fear Wine And Beer, Fermental, Lighthouse Beer And Wine are all solid choices for picking up some stuff.

    I have been down here all week and checked out grape and ale and the wine rack. Both are very small and rather expensive (ex. sculpin 6er $20, pumking $10) The food lion has sweetwater ipa, foothills and highland stuff that was actually pretty fresh...I took a trip down to piggly wiggly @market common and it was well worth the 1:15 trip each way. Prices were great and picked up a pile of Westbrook ipa, one claw and citrus ninja. Met Chris Byrd, nice guy. Nothing special on the growler station but the piggly wiggly tulip glass is sweet!

    I have passed that place several times (shagger jacks) and will check it out tomorrow. Had dinner at loco Joes tonight in southport and they have a nice bottle selection and three beers on tap (green flash hop head red, ST live and seeing double). Menu is tex mex mixed with Vietnamese. Good times

    We ate there (food was good). Beer list isn't mind blowing but there is certain to be choices for a BA. It was the only restaurant on the island that we visited that had a decent selection of craft.
