And if, heaven forbid, you don't like beer, Coastal Extreme also produces its own line of rum, named after the 17th-century Rhode Island pirate Thomas Tew. And the distillery is really making a name for itself after being featured on a recent episode of the Discovery Channel's Dirty Jobs.
If you're interested in either the rum or beer, Newport Storm is located at 293 J.T. Connell Road in Newport. The tasting room and gift shop are open Monday through Sunday from 12 to 5 pm. A tour and tasting flight costs $7 for beer and $9 for rum . . . you even get to keep the glass!
With a beer and cheese tasting with Narragansett Creamery on February 19, the release of a collaboration brew, and a St. Patrick's Day Parade Lager in the works, there are plenty of reasons to take a trip to Newport. Go to support Rhode Island's only microbrewery but, even better, go to enjoy some great beer!
