Best known as the man behind the pours at Trinity Brewhouse, Providence’s longtime hub for craft-beer Heads, Sean Larkin has been brewing professionally for 14 years and racked up nearly as many major awards along the way, including a coveted world beer cup medal in 1996. After earning a strong reputation and loyal following for his work at both Trinity and the Narragansett Brewing Company, a major and beloved local brewery, Larkin set out to draw the Ocean State’s craft beer circle wider. Finding like minds in partners Owen Johnson and Jeff Grantz, Larkin co-founded Revival in 2010. Hardcore beer-lovers are Larkin’s target audience, and his brews for Revival show it. Smart, idiosyncratic, and always good-drinking, Revival’s lineup mixes attention to longtime traditions with rogue-ish innovation. But for Larkin, building a great beer culture in Rhode Island isn’t just about the beer, but about building a great Rhode Island, too. Passionate about his hometown, Larkin believes in reflecting its quirks and charms in his beers, as well as in helping to grow a micro-economy that stretches from farmers and brewers to bartenders and drinkers. Rather than ask, “Why build a business in Rhode Island?”, Larkin asks, “Why not?” *RI Brewers Guild

Cisco Brewers was founded by Randy and Wendy Hudson. Wendy started home brewing with some friends while living in California, but in 1992 she returned to the island and met Randy. Instantly, she not only knew that Randy was her soul mate, but that he would make a great brewer. And so she bought him a kit. Our products are currently distributed in 12 states and growing quickly. We have recently been the beneficiary of much national media exposure (The Wall Street Journal, CNBC, Associated Press, Boston Magazine, Agenda Magazine, Elle Magazine and much more). We’re young (at heart, anyway), love what we produce, and have a great time doing it.
Something’s happening, and it involves clown shoes and beer. Clown Shoes? Very long story, but to condense it a group of us submitted the name to the Beer Advocate contest that resulted in The Wrath of Pecant. Our submission didn’t crack the top 5. This burned me up inside. While driving one day the epiphany came: I could make my own Clown Shoes beer. In no way did I expect to create a brand, figuring it would be one batch of beer for fun and then done. But folks are digging the brews and a group of us are having a great time. Clown Shoes has come to mean a lot to me on a lot of levels. Clowns are questionable but the shoes make me laugh. They remind me about humility and to find humor in life. Our mission now is to produce beer without pretension while being free and a little crazy. We hope you enjoy the beers!
When the first Goose Island Brewpub opened its doors in 1988, domestic, mass-produced beer was deeply ingrained in Midwestern culture. The craft beer industry was still in its infancy, with only a handful of brewpubs in existence in the Midwest. In his travels across Europe, beer-lover John Hall had enjoyed a distinctive local brew in each region he visited. Hall was convinced that Midwesterners could produce beers as good or better than those he’d tasted in his travels. Living on the shore of the largest system of fresh water on the planet Earth, in a city with rapidly evolving tastes – John decided that his hometown, Chicago, would be the ideal place to do just that. Today, Goose Island continues to brew an innovative selection of over 50 craft beers at the brewpub, the best of which are then bottled at our Fulton Street brewery. Goose Island beers are now enjoyed in all 50 states and Europe.
