The Newport Beer Festival, formerly known as the Newport Craft Beer Festival, returns this April for its 10th year. The festival brings with it a day full of craft beer taste-testing, live music and local flavors from 40+ craft brewers. This year's event won't take place at the original location of Great Friends Meeting House, instead it has moved to 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 brand 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.
