Fifth Annual Event

Over 30 different breweries will be sampling their beers, but there will also be an assortment of wine and ciders for those who would prefer. More than a dozen restaurants will also be on hand to give you a taste of what they’ve been cookin’ in the kitchen. You certainly won’t be going hungry or thirsty at this event. You’ll also be able to discuss with experts on what types of beverages pair well with different foods, and with all the options to choose from- you can try it out right then and there. Entertainment will be provided by Emcee Robbie Jones and the talented local duo, Backstreet Romeo. Local vendors including Lularoe, Sweet Carolina Pearls, Cigars Afloat, and Carteret Catch will also be on site so you can shop while you sip, enjoy a smoke break, or learn more about local- sustainable seafood.

If you’re lucky enough to live in Emerald Isle, hopefully you can walk along the bike path. If you’ve gotta get across the bridge, there will be a shuttle service available (See schedule below). After indulging in the array of different beverages, you’ll want to make sure you’ve got a reliable ride back home.
