Got Beer? Fresh Beer News Here!!!


  • Tilted Barn Brewery has become an even-more-primo beer destination since they expanded their production and started canning in March. Matt Richardson sent an update on how the TBB folks are dealing with the crowds of beer fanatics: “We’ve noticed a significant increase in demand since March, resulting in more people, longer lines and lower can limits, unfortunately. We’re doing our best to keep up and just added two more 15-barrel fermenters that are just coming on line. We’ll see can limits increase as a result, hopefully spreading the wealth a bit more. We’ve also added a few things in the tasting room to help with the lines, such as ‘line pours’ (we open an hour early generally for folks to get a beer while they wait in line) and also added another register for pours and tastings only. All in all, the feedback has been great so far and we’re looking forward to continuing to adjust as we go.” Check for updates.
  • Long Live Beerworks has a jam-packed September on tap. Mid-month, brewmaster Armando DeDona will unveil his second collab with PVDounts, a name-to-be-revealed stout. LLB will also team up with PVD for a beer and donut dinner (details TBA) and a culinary event with North – “Outstanding In the Field” – to be held at Pat’s Pastured in East Greenwich. Follow their Fbook and Tweeter accounts for updates. And get ready to line up soon for a new double IPA, Good Good Things, which Armando says “may be our happiest beer to-date.” Cheers!
  • We checked in with Efren Hidalgo re: the progress at Providence Brewing Company, which is aiming for a fall opening at 1920 Mineral Spring Ave in North Providence. Efren certainly has a way with words; he sez: “Where to begin? If this were a Quentin Tarantino film, I’d start somewhere in the middle and work my way out toward either end! Not as much blood and gore, but plenty of blood, sweat and tears. Plumbing and mechanical work is underway and should be completed [soon]! Then electrical steps in. Once that’s done, we cement, and buildout of the tasting room can commence. Think industrial meets mid-century, and a mutated post-apocalyptic lovechild is born. Lots of wood, copper, steel and tiki. I think. For now. Sort of. All of our equipment has arrived and all of it is in storage awaiting the green light from our contractor to begin bringing it in. In the meantime, we’re working on our recipes, trying to perfect them prior to running them on the rig. So far, the test results have been quite delicious – especially our cornerstone beer, Havana Haze, our NEIIPA straight outta the Nort’. Also, we’re happy to announce that we signed on longtime friend Don Sanders as a partner in this insane journey. He’s a musical legend in and around Rhode Island and New England, and currently is the lead guitarist for the preeminent poli-punk band, The Proletariat. Much music, mayhem and adolescent shenanigans will be had at the brewery.”
  • Revival Brewing Company will be showing off its new bar at the Pies and Pints event on Thursday, August 31 at 6pm. They’re hooking up with the new pop-up outfit PVDPies, pairing two mini-pies (one sweet, one savory) with Revival brews, plus a special mini-oompah-pie to accompany the just-tapped Oktoberfest. Hit the Revival Fbook for tix and more enticement.
  • Newport Storm has three releases hitting stores next week: the third edition of InfRIngement, a potent (10% ABV) Russian Imperial Stout aged in Thomas Tew Rum barrels; Oktoberfest, a Marzen lager; and R.I.P.umpkin Ale. And they’ll host a big bash on Saturday, August 19 from 6:30 – 8:30pm. Charcuterie At the Brewery is a collab with Newport Wine Cellar & Gourmet, featuring “culinary specialties” paired with Storm beers. Hit their Facebook page for more info.
  • Straight outta Pawtucket: On Friday, September 1, Bucket Brewery will unveil Payce’s IPA, a session IPA made with Horizon hops. It’s the latest entry in the Consistently Inconsistent series; limited cans will be available at their HQ and a few local taps. And Foolproof Brewing Company will be shipping Peanut Butter Raincloud at the end of the month, with cans of Federal Hill Ale due in early October and Forecast Chapter 3, a salted caramel ale, around Halloween.
  • rise instaWhalers Brewing Company will be rolling out cans of Rise, a top-notch pale ale, through September (and likely beyond). They’re planning on releasing cans of East Coast IPA in October and Hazelnut Stout in November.
