This festival celebrates Newport’s rich brewing history (dating back before the American Revolution!).  Brewers will travel from as far as California, and as close as Newport’s North End!   Guests will be given the opportunity to try small samples of a spectrum of craft brews and converse with the folks who made them.  Local bands and restaurants will join us all! (Food available for purchase!)

 VIB Event (Very Important Beers!):  Join us for a special Friday evening event to taste some VIBs that you won’t see on Saturday, while chatting and sampling with some of the people who make the very beer you’ll be sipping on, in a small setting at Newport Storm Brewery. Limited tickets available, so jump on this 1st-time event and a sweet raffle prize of some of the fancy schmancy beers you’ll try!

The Newport Craft Beer Festival is a 21+ event.
