Wine and beer festival benefitting Tryon Palace Foundation set for Oct. 17 

Dozens of wines, craft beers from all over the world and tasty hors d’oeuvres will be served on New Bern’s picturesque waterfront during the Juice on the Neuse Wine and Craft Beer Tasting. This third annual event will be held at Galley Stores from 1-4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 17. 

Held as a collaborative effort between the Tryon Palace Foundation, Galley Stores and Persimmons Waterfront Restaurant, half of the proceeds from this annual event will benefit the Tryon Palace Foundation. 

“We are honored to be a part of this year’s Juice on the Neuse,” said Tryon Palace Development Manager Anna Shepherd. “We’re always looking for fun and new ways to collaborate with our community and Juice on the Neuse has a tremendous reputation as one of New Bern’s most popular events. When Galley Stores approached us to join them this year, we immediately saw it as a win-win for us both.”

Tickets to Juice on the Neuse are $25 prior to Oct. 17 and $30 on the day of the event. Each ticket includes a tasting glass and hors d’oeuvres provided by Persimmons Restaurant. Tickets are available at Galley Stores, located at 300 East Front St., New Bern, NC, and online at www.tryonpalace.org/juice. 

The wines and beers served at Juice on the Neuse will be available for purchase during the event or for those who are unable to attend, Juice on the Neuse wines and craft beers can be purchased online through Oct. 25, 2015. A portion of these special online orders will be donated to the Tryon Palace Foundation.
