Attention beer lovers; Rhode Island Brewers Guild is crafting up a schedule of events at your favorite breweries, bars and restaurants around the state to celebrate the Inaugural RI Craft Beer Week, happening March 5th - 13th. There will be events happening all week long at taprooms and breweries, along with special featured events, like a girl scout cookie and beer flight pairing at Newport Craft Brewing Co., pop-up food trucks at Six Pack Brewing, and a Beer Hall Night with live music and free admission at Taproot Brewing Co. to name a few.
Find all of the scheduled fun in and around Newport below.
When you're ready, we can't wait to welcome you back to The Classic Coast. Rest assured, the safety and well-being of both visitors and locals remains our top priority. The mask mandate requiring face coverings in Rhode Island has been lifted, however local businesses may ask you to wear a mask when visiting their establishments. Please be prepared for individual business mask policies. Additionally, shops, attractions and tours are monitoring the number of guests at any given time and may ask you to socially distance to enter.
All we ask when you land on these shores is that you play your part in keeping everyone safe. Please be kind, adhere to guidelines and maintain social distancing.
