Don’t Miss these Awsome Brew Pubs
Union Station Brewery was Rhode Island’s first brew pub, and although others have popped up since, it’s still a Rhode Island favorite. Situated in the former Union Station train depot in the heart of downtown Providence, arched windows lend the building great character while its outdoor patio is ideal for enjoying a warm summer afternoon. Union’s brewers keep a seasonal rotation of beers on tap while the food, like the award-winning beer, is all made from scratch. Providence.
Trinity Brewhouse has been a mainstay for thirsty theater-goers and night-crawlers for more than twenty years. The brews they serve are made in-house and range from some of the tartest IPAs to some of the darkest stouts. Providence.
Coddington Brewing Company has been serving up 100 percent natural and delicious hand-crafted brews to Newport County since 1995. Offering everything from fresh IPAs and Irish red ales to oatmeal stouts and winter lagers, this remote pub’s tastes can’t be beat. Middletown.
