Stopped by on a recent tour of the NE while in the Newport area. Did the beer tasting, where they give you four tastes of their beer for about 7 bucks, include a nice stemmed tulip glass. Tasting room was crowded, and it was close to the end of the day. They could have used one more hand in serving, as people were waiting and waiting...but overall worth the stop if you are in the area. Most of the pours were from bottles, only one on draft. Pours were very generous. They are in an industrial area of Newport, and the sign out front is easy to miss.

Stopped in for the 3 p.m. tour on 7/3/13. Nice informative tour that was more centered around the history of Newport Storm and Thomas Tew vs. the brewing/distilling process, which isnít necessarily a bad thing. Hot as hell in the brew house, but it was a brew day. Sample pours were generous, with the Irish Spring Ale and Blueberry Ale as the standouts. Merch for sale, but no beer due to state law. Worth the visit.

Small tasting room in brewery. Not a lot of room but friendly staff. Definitely need to stop by if in the area.

Big production brewery/distillery with a shiny tasting room. The tasting is 4 beers for 7.49, but you keep the nice glass and the pours are on the large side. There is a rum tasting option also. Swag to go, but no beer to go due to local ordinances. There is an observation deck over the brewery. Plenty of parking and the guy working was pretty nice. Decent place to visit.

A working brewery with a small stand up bar tucked into the front room. Four beers on offer - and rum. The place is small, so the self-guided walk-around is plenty. Staff is friendly. $7 for four beers and a glass, not a bad deal!

Stopped in for a tour and see the new brewery. Staff was friendly and pleasant. the beers that I sampled where very good. Including their Cyclone series. They also distill Rum (Thomas Tew) which was very good. Nice to see Rhode Island making Rum and Beer. This is a fun tour to do if your in Newport.

I stopped in with my wife during a recent trip to Newport and had a wonderful time at the brewery. We spent most of the time talking beer with our guide/bartender who served us four different beers from their lineup, including their latest Storm series release "Ryan." The tasting glasses are tulips, which you get to keep when the tasting is over. I love the rum tasting glasses they have, and my wife bought me two that she is putting away for Christmas. If you are looking for locally made craft beer, your two options are this place and Coddington, which is just down the road.

Visited the brewery a few weekends ago with family for a tour, sampled the unique rums, as Iíve had what they were offering. The tasting room and shop is very nice, with great swag and very friendly staff. The tour is quick and self-guided most of the time (there are scheduled lead tours - call ahead). They offer a very nice branded tulip glass that comes with the tasting. The only thing that was a little off-putting for me was the general cleanliness of the brewery, rather surprisingly dirty. Iím also surprised that no beer has made it into used Rum barrels (with time, maybe, with time). Nothing you can get here (beer-wise) that you wonít be able to get in one of the beer local liquor stores.

A great local microbrew company and RIís only one! After standing in line for about 20 mintues, someone comes around and counts heads untill they are full, the rest have to go home because they only let about 35 into the tour, and 35 in to the tasting. Very friendly hosts, for $5 you get a pint glass, filled with beer, and a tour of where they make their beer. After the tour, you go into the tasting room, where hopefully those people with the 3 plastic cups of free beer have already left, then you can get 3 more styles of beer free to fill up your pint glass. The place is a garage store house, basicly they rent out 2 garages. The place is tight, but makes for a great place to meet and talk to people since your smushed together. Tons and tons of college kids.
