Finally a real beer store comes to Greenville. Mike and Ed seem to me to be extremely passionate about beer and wine. These guys are serious about this store and are the only guys who know how to properly fill a growler in the upstate. I am very excited to see where they take this in the future. Locally owned and operated.
I’m a big fan of this bottle shop! Every time I stop in it seems like something new and excited has just landed. Some times I want to just browse, and other times I want to pick up some info & education on certain beers or breweries and The Community Tap allows me to do both of these things. Knowledgeable staff, I always seem to have a great convo with either Mike or Ed. Just a great shop!
Feels like family. Mike and Ed are the owners and can answer any question you have about wine and beer. While I’m reviewing it for beer purposes, the wine side of things is very good. Great staff, and a great selection. There is also a tasting room where you can sample or enjoy a pint of what is on the growler station. Good ambiance and you’ll want to go back again and again.

My favorite bottle shop (and now Bar) in Greenville. Mike & Ed really know their stuff and are always glad to help you pick out something or share some knowledge on the industry - the rest of the staff is great, too. The selection is as good as it gets in the Upstate and the series of tastings and unique events they stage are fantastic. Now that we have food trucks and TCT can serve on-premise; I don’t think it gets any better! Can’t wait for the first TCT Fest this Spring!
I really love this place. It’s small but has a good selection, with staff that remembers your name if you are a regular. They really know their products.
They have really wonderful and inexpensive tastings for beer and wine and a well selected growler station.
It doesn’t hurt that it’s two minutes from my house, and I find that their prices are comparable (and sometimes cheaper) than grocery stores that carry the same thing.
This place is awesome and it is so good to see a real beer store in Greenville. I was reminded of The Beer Growler in Athens which I visited the day before. The Community Tap is also a sparse, efficient dedicated beer store though they had a bit more interesting of a selection. Some rarities from Thomas Creek, Mikkeller and miscellaneous good Belgian breweries spice up the options, but there aren’t so many beers that it’s overwhelming or rotation of stock appears to be an issue. There are actually 9 taps including one of their own beers, an IPA, which is brewed specifically for them by Thomas Creek and tastes really good. Prices on most things are right in line for the SC market, i.e. cheaper than I’m used to paying in TN or NC. The Community Tap is one of the more excellent beer stores I have visited in a while.
Great selection of beer by the bottle and always something new on tap! Staff seems to know their stuff, and I try to stop in on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays when they’re fully restocked w/ liquid goodies!
Great new store. Pretty small, but clearly quality over quantity. Several tap selections for growlers, and some stuff you don’t find elsewhere. Most is kept warm, a little is kept cold. Very helpful staff.
