Located on what looks like the main drag of Newport. Parking was available on the street though I had to walk a few blocks. Definitely has kind of a rich moneyed vibe about the place. They had 18-20 taps with half filled with mediocre Belgian and Scandinavian offerings and the other half regional craft. There wasn't a lot on the tap list that I hadn't seen before. The food was tasty. Unfortunately the bartender was rude and condescending. Clearly if you read through the reviews for this place, many of them feel like plants. Maybe if the bartender wasn't such an asshole I might go back, but it doesn't strike me as any type of destination place.
Overall very impressed with Norey’s and their management. Huge fan our sour beers and really have never found a place with this strong of a beer selection. OEC was on tap and don’t think that quality of sour beers can be found in many places. Management was incredibly friendly and would highly recommend this bar...especially for beer geeks!
Very premium bar in Rhode Island. It’s a high rent area so it has to be expensive but look over that and the staff you get on keg wow. Great bottle range. Attentive staff who really know their stuff. Killer blues band. Awesome place. Really perfect microamtic keg system and one of the best places for well looked-after beer which I’ve been to. Take a lot of money and spend it and be happy. I was.
Norey’s is my favorite spot in Newport for serious craft beer. It is tucked away on Broadway Street amongst dozens of other bars and restaurants, but it stands out once you step inside. Upon entering, you are greeted by nearly impossible beers to find on draft in Rhode Island like De Dolle (yes Stille Nacht!), BFM, and OEC. I was also there for their Stout Tap Takeover when they had Black Albert Russian Imperial Stout, KBS Stout, Bourbon County, Speedway Stout, My Blueberry Nightmare, and other tasty treats. The food is also very tasty, especially the Smoked Wings and Baked Quattro Formaggi. There are other bars serving decent craft brews in Newport, but the quality doesn’t compare. I’m not sure how they get this kind of selection, but I hope they keep doing it.

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.
The rules of this restaurant are very simple-no hats, no logo clothing, no takeout.
Think of it as dinner at Chef Tyler’s house, and you will have no problems.They are closed on Sundays and open at 4PM the rest of the week.
The beer is amazing- you never know what is going to be on tap. If you are making a trip here-plan ahead and squeeze in more than one visit.This is also a great beer bar to bring along non beer advocates- great wine, service, and food.
Great Beer Selection! I stumbled upon this place while walking around in Newport. It definitely stands out amongst other bars around town. 20 craft beers on tap, and over 200 bottles. I was floored. The House smoked wings are a great appetizer if you’re sitting at the bar, or their house-made pasta if you’re feeling more on the hungry side. Great Stop if you’re a beer fanatic.
