In addtion to the best in craft beer on tap we also frequently have craft cider and mead on tap and on the shelf sourced from local NC buisinesses.  

With there being so many wine bars and wine stores to choose from, at the Hop Yard we focus on curating our wine collection to include wines we love that are sourced from boutique wineries and producers that cannot be found in larger stores. We also focus on sourcing our wine selection from producers who use sustainable and organic wine making practices in addtion to biodynamically produced and vegan wines. We have an extensive wine selection to meet all price points and our collection comes from all over the world including the US, Europe, Australia, South America and South Africa.
