The Newport Beer Festival, formerly known as the Newport Craft Beer Festival, returns this April for its 11th year. The festival brings with it a day full of craft beer taste-testing, live music from The Ravers, local flavors from 50 craft brewers, and is back for the second year at a bigger venue, Fort Adams State Park.

This year's festival will offer one session only, instead of the previous two, and will feature breweries big and small, from RI's oldest brewery, Narragansett Brewery, to a new microbrewery in Bristol, Pivotal Brewing, to name a few. This is a 21+ event, please bring valid ID. All proceeds from the event go to the Rhode Island Brewers Guild, whose mission is to support and promote Rhode Island’s Breweries.

See you at the fort for craft beer, live music and more.
