Newport Craft Beer Festival 2017If you’ve a taste for hops, malt, and roasted barley, then you won’t want to miss the 6th annual Newport Craft Beer Festival! This year’s event is scheduled for Friday, April 28th and Saturday, April 29th, 2017.

Newport Craft Beer Festival is back once again, co-sponsored by the Newport Storm Brewery and Pour Judgement Bar & Grille. This two-day event is a celebration of the best locally brewed beer the Newport County has to offer, if not some of the very best beer in the country!

Ticket holders will receive a commemorative tasting glass, samples from all the breweries present, and an opportunity to cast their vote for the Fan Favorite Brewery Award. You even get to keep the glass!

The theme for this year’s Newport Craft Beer Festival is #unfiltered! Each brewery will be delivering their cloudiest, haziest, wheat-rich, or (and?) hyper-hopped beers.

This two-day event features three sessions: one on Friday and two on Saturday.

Friday Session: VIB (Very Important Beers!) – 8pm to 10pm
The VIB Session is a more intimate event held at the Newport Storm Brewery. It will feature special beers not available at the Saturday sessions and a chance to rub elbows with the brewers.

Saturday’s Sessions – 12pm to 3pm and 4pm to 7pm
Come out to the huge tent at the Great Friends Meeting House in downtown Newport, for the Newport Craft Beer Festival! Be sure to visit “Guild Row,” a designated area under the festival tent for all the Rhode Island-based brewers. Local Newport restaurants will be on hand to offer their best plates, and local bands will keep you on your feet and grooving throughout the festival.
