Craft Beer on Tap & Bottle Shop

When It Comes to Our Drinks, We Ain’t
Kiddin’ Around

Twelve Taps

They say variety is the spice of life. 
The team at Cork & Ale takes special care to have new choices on tap every week.


Just the right cold one

We’ve turned the search for the
perfect beer into an art form.  Scouring local, national, and international brewers for only the best.  It's not easy to make our list.

Bottle Shop

Enjoy the many choices
Cork & Ale assembles to stock your fridge. IPAs, Stouts, Sours, Ciders, Ales, Ambers, Pilsners, Lagers, you name it.  We may even have beer made only by monks if you are feeling you need a little heavenly intervention as you sip from a
perfect pour.


Fine Wine 

Glass, Bottle, Case 

Wine by the glass

Benjamin Franklin was
a smart guy.  As he said...."The
discovery of a wine is of greater moment than the discovery of a constellation. 
The universe is too full of stars." 
Enjoy our ever-changing
selections by
the glass.


Wine by the bottle

Say goodbye to grocery store wine roulette.  Even with over 300 wines to choose from, we hand-pick every single one so you can take home the very best.

Stock the cellar

We take our wine partnerships
seriously.  Enjoy the unique flavors
of France, Italy, New Zealand, Austria, California as you explore wines from around the world.  Mainstream to boutique 
selections allows us to keep your
cellar stocked just right.

Cork & Ale is a place to commemorate historical Waxhaw while looking ahead to its vibrant future.  Located across from Waxhaw's historic bridge and train tracks, our interesting history does not stop at our doorstep, as we are in the first building to serve alcohol in Waxhaw.

Come see us and you'll find an extensive collection of hand-selected fine wines by the glass and bottle, a craft beer bottle-shop and taproom, and delicious dishes, from small plates to entrées. We take pride in treating every guest as a valued member of our family.
