Adventuring around Rhode Island, you will discover a variety of breweries and wineries including the location of Newport. There are Newport Storm, Coddington Brewery, and Newport Vineyard/Brix Restaurant.
Newport Storm Brewery is not located directly downtown, but easy to drive to. They have tastings for only $9 to $11 every day except Tuesdays. A souvenir tasting glass is included within the price as well. You could bring a growler home of your favorite beers on tap. We recommend the blueberry Rhode Island beer when in season. The brewery also has every Friday as a no-cost day, so it a chance to taste with no pay.
If you wanted to have beer and a meal, there is Coddington Brewery Company. It located in Middletown, RI which is right next to Newport. They have an exquisite menu with handcrafted beer throughout their restaurant. Their beer option are not available anywhere else.
Pour Judgment is another restaurant, who craft their one beer. It is a local restaurant and bar that is “a whole in the wall” on Broadway, which has an unique and delicious menu with a vase variety beer collection.
A further location is the Newport’s Vineyards with the Brix restaurant. They have about twenty different wines and several events throughout the year. If you are not touring the vineyards or joining the tasting, there is the chance to taste their wines during dinner at the restaurant. Their menu is American cuisine with a comforting high end décor.
Come stay with us, and you can walk to Pour Judgment or get an Uber to any of these locations. Afterwards, you can bring back a bottle of wine and a growler of beer to enjoy on our beautiful back deck.
