I have been here about 3 times in the past ten years. I does not change a bit. Very stale and dated - mid-1990s style. Beer selection is lacking and boring. Had an IPA that was bland and boring too.

A bit off-center in a remote ugly street in the otherwise charming Newport. Easy to access by car and with lots of parking space. This is yet another typical American brewpub that is actually a family restaurant that brew their own beers. However unlike many similar resto-pubs this place is not overtaken by too many tv screens on sports channels. Seven house beers on tap, I think six of them were regulars and one was the seasonal. Beer quality is nothing to brag about. Because the beers are fresh at the brewpub they are moderately enjoyable but these are boring beer recipes meant to propose the undiscerning customer with a choice of beer colors. Food ranges from $10 burgers to $25 surf-and-turf. Generous portions. I didn’t like my pizza but other plates appeared tasty. Nothing special, but it’s not like there is many other choices in the area. Worth a stop for a meal and a beer, not worth a stop for the beer only.

Kind of a chain-restaurant vibe, with a seafaring theme, which makes sense given its location. Small parking lot but it looks sufficient. The food was of slightly above average quality. Food prices were decent. The bartender was pretty friendly. The beer sampler is freaking huge. $15 but you get 49 ounces of beer. They would really do well to downsize this, or at least have a smaller option, so those of us driving don’t have to leave a bunch of beer behind. Three of the seven beers had fruit garnishes. The beers were all pretty one note... not bad and not great. Since Coastal Extreme is so close, it’s worth a stop.

Large place, pretty empty at lunchtime on a Sunday. Lots of beers on, all decent enough. Food was tasty. Worth a peek on your way to or from Coastal Extreme.

Just up the road from the NEwport Storm Brewery is Coddington Brewing Company, a brew pub and restaurant. Service on the day I was there was okay. Had to flag down the waitress a few times. Seemed to forget about us. Food is decent and prices not bad for the newport area.

A nice brewpub just outside of Newport, RI. It is split into a bar side and restaurant side, definitely family friendly. Lots of pictures of the old town on the walls. It was fairly quiet when I was there on a Monday afternoon. They had around 8 taps on when I was there. Mostly average beers, and some of the styles weren’t my favorite but there are enough that you can find something. The food is on the pricier side, but good (I had a tasty lobster bisque). It was a great place to get my Rhode Island tick :-)

My family has eaten here on a number of occasions and I am surprised that I have not reviewed this place before now. They usually have six beers on tap, three regular beers and three seasonal brews. The place itself is nicely decorated and there are several large televisions in the bar area. The service is usually excellent and the food is very good as well. If you are in the Newport area looking for local craft beer, your two options are this place and Coastal Extreme Brewing which is just down the road. Family-friendly and worth the visit.

Fels like a chain place, think Rock Bottom or John harvards. Beers are average at best. the food was good but nothing over the top. If you in the neighborhood it’s might be worth a stop but I would not go out of my way at all.
