The Rhode Island craft beer scene has received some big accolades, USA TODAY 10 Best has included the Ocean State on a list of 10 beer scenes that should be on your radar.
Here’s what they had to say about Rhode Island’s craft beer scene;
“Rhode Island is only 37 miles wide and 48 miles long and within those state lines is a beer trail that’s 22 breweries across. How can such a small state rock so many breweries? The state has a long history in brewing beer, starting with the Narragansett Brewing Company founded in 1890.
Even though Prohibition and strict state regulations were a setback, once the laws were lifted, brewers were eager to get back to business. To experience the best beers that Rhode Island has to offer, the Rhode Island Brewers Guild created a brewery passport to help guide travelers on their journey”.
St. Louis, New Orleans, Hawaiian Islands, Richmond, Grand Rapids, Kentucky, Milwaukee, Charleston, and Fort Collins join Rhode Island on the list.
