Beer Garden City Is Now Open on Weekends
Avvio ristorante is offering appetizers that pair well with local beers from Rhode Island breweries.
Shop till you drop then sip beers. Cranston’s Garden City will feature a new Rhode Island brewery every weekend in September at its new Beer Garden City. Shoppers and visitors are welcome to relax in the outdoor environment, sample brews from local breweries and enjoy a light menu from Avvio Italian ristorante. The family- and dog-friendly beer garden also features games and live music at the gazebo.
This weekend, September 10-12, will feature Narragansett Beer; September 17-19 will feature Newport Craft Brewing; and September 24-26 will feature Whalers Brewing Company. The beer garden is open to visitors with no cover charge. “We are excited to partner with Newport Restaurant Group and these local breweries to feature a month of events to mark the end of summer and the start of fall,” says Joe Koechel, general manager of Garden City Center. “As people once again start to pull-back from indoor activities, we wanted to offer an outdoor venue where folks can meet their friends, listen to music and support local businesses.”
Seating is first-come-first-served and operating hours will be weather permitting. Customers must show a valid ID in order to purchase an alcoholic beverage.
Beer Garden City is open the following hours: Fridays 4-8 p.m.; Saturdays 1-8 p.m. and Sundays 1-7 p.m.
