THis is the best beer bar in RI and maybe New England. Excellent service, food and wine. Perfect place to take a date on a beer crawl.
Mr. Toshiyuki Kiuchi, owner and brewmaster of the Kiuchi Brewery, producer of Hitachino Nest Beers, will be at Norey’s at 4pm on Wednesday, July 16th for a Hitachino Nest Tap Takeover. Hitachino Nest is a brand of Japanese top-fermented ales. Having brewed sake since 1823, the Kuichi family tried their hand at brewing beer in 1996 combining Western craft brewing with their traditional sake brewing method. They settled on the name "Hitachino Nest Beer" and all their bottles come emblazened with a unique owl character. Mr. Kiuchi will be discussing his brewery and its beer, how his brewery responded to the Japanese earthquake and where he’s taking Hitachino Nest in the future.

Okay so hands down the best beer selection in Newport. Especially when it comes to what is on tap. It is always changing! the chef not only cooks an eclectic menu, but his tap menu reflects this approach. Non-stop change and constant daily specials. The portions are huge and worth the price (perhaps they don’t need to be as big), but I’m told every single sauce and dressing is made from scratch. The place is almost fine dining in that not only does the beer and wine menu exceed expectations, but there are meads and dessert wines to go with the homemade desserts made by Norey herself. talk about an organic experience. Service? they need more people on the floor. the wait is a little too long sometimes! but nice staff

Beer selection is in mached in Newport and maybe all of R.I. The ribs were like nothing I have ever had , delicious ! The chief could probably cheer up a bit but was very generous towards the end of the night when he opended up a few new beers for my friends and I to try. Over great experience and will be making it a weekly destination to feed my hunger for awesom beer and deliouse food

The selection of craft beer in this bar is probably the best in RI.

Norey’s is heaven for any serious craft beer lover. The tap list is all beers that have gotten 95+ from Ratebeer and it’s pretty damn hard to get through them all because they tend to be on the strong side.
And then there’s 140+ beers in bottles. Most at a markup that’s only slightly above liquor store prices.
Chef Tyler Cullen works magic in the kitchen. Everything I’ve had has been great.
