Edenton Celebrates NC Beer Month
Make your own history in “one of America’s prettiest towns” as recognized by Forbes.com while celebrating NC Beer Month. History, Beauty and Charm will highlight your visit as you walk in the footsteps of your colonial forefathers for tastings, learning and experiencing some of North Carolina’s finest brews. National Historic Landmarks with outstanding architecture nestled along the Albemarle Sound will be your spring-time setting for tours, gardens, art, and music. After a paddle along the creeks, touring or shopping, a refreshment stop along Broad and Water Streets at 309 Bistro, Waterman’s Grill or on the Edenton Bay Trading Patio for one of NC’s favorite craft beers will be the best way to end a perfect day. So if NC Beer, NC Peanuts and NC River Lighthouses are among some of the things you enjoy most, we invite you to make Edenton a visit decision especially during the month of April.
