April Showers Bring May Sours

 April Showers Bring May Sours

We’re already well known for our selection of sour ales, but all throughout the month of May we’re going to be majorly ramping it up. We’ve been stashing sours all spring, waiting for May 1. Stay tuned for some great, limited release sours available in bottles and on draft.

Special Events

Thursday, May 5: Cinco de Mayo with White Street Brewing Co.

  • Yes, we know… Cinco de Mayo is not a Cape Fear Wine & Beer holiday. You’ll never find mediocre imports adorning a lime wedge. Our friend Jason from White Street Brewing Co. of Wake Forest, NC will be in town that night for a fun Randall with their Hoptimist IPA. We’re going to turn it into Hoptimista! We’ll have a couple of supporting drafts too. The fun starts at 7 PM.

Weekly Events


  • Massage Monday: 5-8 PM $10 for 10 minutes with licensed therapist, Josh Lentz.
  • Beer Flights: nine 5 oz samples for $18.
  • Monday Night Nitro: $1 off nitrogen pours.

    On a side note, as we wind down NC Beer Month, we want to thank all of the amazing breweries we’ve partnered with this month (and every month) for their devotion and talent, and for putting NC on the map. Cheers!
