Due to COVID-19 safety guidelines and restrictions, the Newport Craft Brew Race is postponed until 2022. 



The nationally acclaimed event series known for its celebration of local craft brewing, Craft Brew Races, features a 5k followed by a craft beer festival. Open to beer lovers of all speeds, the annual race is held at Fort Adams State Park, followed by a 3-hour post-race celebration featuring samples from 30+ breweries, live music, and food trucks. Medals and awards are handed out to finisher, and each participant receives a souvenir pint glass.



  • Dress Up: It's optional, but you should note: the best individual costume gets an award.
  • No Pressure: Not a runner? Feel free to walk. The 5k is timed, but the brew races offer a relaxed atmosphere sans pressure.
  • Age Matters: While the race is open to all local craft beer lovers, you must be 21 and over. The post-race festival is open to all 21+ race participants or anyone wishing to purchase a Festival Only ticket or a Designated Driver ticket.
