On August 28, 1898, in New Bern, North Carolina, pharmacist Caleb Bradham renamed “Brad’s Drink,” his popular non-alcoholic digestif, “Pepsi-Cola.” 125 years later, Pepsi has become one of the world’s most

In honor of its 125th birthday, Pepsi will celebrate its iconic history where it has lived at the center of pop culture – in sports, music, and entertainment – and look ahead to the brand’s next 125 years.
On August 28th the brand will start the party right here in Historic Downtown New Bern NC by offering free Pepsi at THE BIRTHPLACE OF PEPSI from 10am until 6pm
