Nice and clean place. Very small parking lot though. I canít remember the gentlemanís name who helped me but he was very nice and knowledgable. They have a bunch of empty beer bottles on top of the shelving with the taps. I was surprised to see them showing off other breweries beers, most of which are either retired or on the rare side. Kudos to them for doing that. To me it shows that they are about having some good beers with good company and not just all about the money, which I definitely respect. There were 8 tap handles, but unfortunately they didnít have something "special" or harder to find beers that a lot of breweries tend to have. You know, something that is usually only found at the brewery. Overall it was a nice place to check out. If I didnít have my kid with me I would love to have hung out for a little bit longer.

Took a ride to Grey Sail from NJ recently as I needed a RateBeer rating for Rhode Island (last state I needed in the northeast). Westerly is the closest brewery I could find...and as it turns out...an excellent choice as both Westerly and nearby Watch Hill are great places to visit. The brewery itself is a nice looking building from the outside (says: "Westerly Macaroni Mfg Co" on the building)...but the inside is very tight and not that special. The brewery equipment takes up most of the space and it looks like they needed a shoehorn to get it all in...lol! The bar and standing area are very small...with few places to sit. You can however see the brewery when you head to the facilities...as thatís where the bathrooms are. As for the beers...they had 8 when I visited plus a 9th in a gravity keg...I especially enjoyed the Poor Judgment IPA, the Great Ketch IPL, and the Captainís Daughter Double IPA. There were also a porter, stout, Belgium wit, a cream ale, and an extra pale ale. The deal here is extremely good...$5 gets you 5 samples "and" a pint logo glass to keep...the down side...and this is a Rhode Island thing...not a Grey Sail thing...you canít get more than 5 samples "and" no pints are sold...so your only other choice after drinking your 5 samples is to buy a growler or two and leave (which I guess explains how they can work with such a small taproom...not much reason to stay around long). Iím told they want to build a brewpub next door which will allow them to serve food and pints there (doesnít sound very business friendly in Rhode Island...at least not for breweries). I recommend a visit here...not far at all from I95.

Melissa and staff are absolutely awesome, serving fresh beer and good company. Several beers on tap and a new cask setup were ready for us along with two bottled rarities. This was a great stop and they are ready to talk beer and share one with you.

This was definitely worth the short drive from Providence. The tasting room is in the front, and looks into the brewery which is one level down. Michelle and Dan were very friendly and knowledgable, and served from really tasty beers. Great stop.

Small production brewery with a bright, open tasting room in the front. Nice people and nice beer. 4 options on tap. All were solid. Enough parking. Pints are available but no off premise sales. Overall a very nice stop.

A nice little tasting room, with a few pours, and brewers to talk to. Apparently, growlers are in the works, with some legislation needing to be tweaked.
