     A desire for craft beer and wine 7 days a week led to the creation of  Community Tap , a local neighborhood beer and wine store.  Local being the key word, “We have people who walk in and there is always somebody they know. You can come by yourself and your pretty much gonna see somebody you know," says owner Anna Okupinski. Her husband Mike Okupinski and friend Ed Buffington, opened Community Tap six years ago. Anna and Mike also live 4 blocks away. Locals.         Originally two doors down from their current location, Community Tap started as a carry-out-only craft beer shop. It now seats 120 and offers over 600 craft beers, 80 boutique wines. And the ever popular, growlers to go.  Location for them was key.  Located off Main St, they saw the growth potential of the area.  “I think Greenville is so different.  When I was in high school, you didn’t go down Main Street. Something really special is happening to Main Street and I think its growing outward," said Anna. Added Mike, “Even though it’s a strip mall, it was from the 70’s and it had a little class and a little funky feel to it.”  We agree.
