     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.

  Location 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 and I think its growing outward," said Anna. Mike adds, “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.
