With the craft beer obsession sweeping the country, seeking out local brews is a great way to get to know a new area. When you arrive at our Newport boutique hotels , you'll likely ask, where's a good place to get craft beer in Newport? Rhode Island's most famous beer Narragansett is no longer made in the state (although a fundraising campaign aims to bring it back) but there's now several craft beer breweries in Rhode Island turning out everything from raspberry IPA to cream ale. Look for one of these local craft brews on tap in one of Newport's bars and enjoy some of Newport's best craft beer.

You'll find Revival's brews, like the Zeppelin Hefeweizen Ale and the White Electric Coffee Stout, on tap at Newport's The Wharf Pub which prides itself on its wide selection of New England craft beers.
Foolproof Brewing Company | 241 Grotto Ave, Pawtucket | (401) 721-5970
This Pawtucket-based brewery makes styles of beer that go well with activities, what they call "experienced-based brewing," like Backyard IPA, made for enjoying while barbecuing, and Raincloud, a robust porter to cozy up with on a rainy day. We think they also go well with relaxing and overlooking historic Thames St. from The Brick Alley beer bar.
