Hot enuf for ya?!? This batch o’ way-cool brew news will offer a respite from the heat…

beer.7.9The last time around, we toasted the opening of Taproot Brewing Co. And this time around we’re welcoming the latest member of the mushrooming 401 Beer Scene: Beer On Earth, which will  stage its grand opening at 6670 Post Rd, North Kingstown, this weekend (Fri, Jul 6 from 4 – 9pm, Sat, Jul 7 from 3 – 9pm and Sun, Jul 8 from 12 – 5pm). Adam Henderson and Paul DiBiase have been working toward this weekend for 18 months. They took a brief break to tell us: “If all goes well, we are on track to have six beers on tap to start: blonde ale, coffee porter, saison, IPA, double IPA and a Berliner Weisse. We are currently putting the final touches on an outdoor patio area to accommodate more guests and allow people to enjoy our beer in the sun. We will be offering howlers in the near future as a take-home option, but we are going to hold off on them for the opening weekend.” Cheers and best of luck, guys! Get updates at
