The Peak Taphouse opened in the spring of 2017 with the promise of bringing Topsail Island the largest craft beer selection in one place. With 20+ rotating taps and a large selection of bottles and cans it didn't disappoint. In 2018 we decided we were missing something... The freshest, yummiest, thin crust pizza you could find on the island. Hence the name change to The Peak Taphouse and Kitchen. With the addition of food we also decided to add a selection of wines and ciders to open our doors to a few more people. Today we love what has become to be locally referred to as just "The Peak". Locals affectionally call it their Cheers and you can always find a friendly face behind the bar. We welcome you to come drop in for a swell time.
