How to Get Craft Beer From Rhode Island Breweries
Get all the details on how Rhode Island breweries are doing curbside-pickup-only for customers.
We heard from the Rhode Island Brewers Guild, which was concerned about our local Rhode Island breweries being able to get their beer to the public. There are thirty Rhode Island breweries, and all of them have closed their taprooms, while most of them have decided to do curbside-pickup-only for customers, so they can minimize contact. Gary Richardson is the executive director of the Rhode Island Brewers Guild, and Justin Tisdale of Apponaug Brewing is the president, and they worked together to gather all of this information from local breweries. We’re sharing it with you to help keep them all in business during this difficult time. Find out what they are doing, who’s open and who’s closed, and who has takeout options available for food.
Note: This list is subject to change. Please consult social media accounts or contact the individual breweries to confirm before visiting.
