It’s time for change! Rather than sticking to the one-off format that has been the Brew Guide bread and butter, your new Guide is going to consist of new breweries, updates of past breweries, brews that you need to try, and craft beer places you need to visit. I may even throw in a couple upcoming events. Basically, it’ll be a one stop shop for every type of post I’ve done before!
Here’s the first edition, where a quest to find Rhode Islands best donut also meant a heavy dose of RI’s best breweries!

I should apologize for something. It’s been a real long time since I’ve given a Marvel update. Don’t worry though, I’ve still been on top of it!
Spiderman was a fantastic movie in case you somehow missed it. Tom Holland is waaaay better than Andrew Garfield and Michael Keaton sure can play a bird like no other. And then the ComicCon trailers for Thor & Defenders came out and look damn amazing. It’s a good time to be a Marvel fan, so much great stuff is happening.
And this concludes our Marvel minute. Now onto the beer with Newport Storm!

Howdy Folks! This week I want to open the floor to you savages. I’m heading to Connecticut, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine, most likely all by the end of this month. Since most of them are foreign territories (except NH and parts of CT), I’m looking for some suggestions as to what brewery I should be headed next. So comment on here, Facebook, Instagram or email me firstname.lastname@example.org and give me a reason to visit!
So let’s wrap up the Kingston/Kingstown trip from last week with a stop into Sons of Liberty Spirits…because they have beer too!

Tonight’s the NFL draft and the Patriot’s currently have no picks until Saturday. We don’t have to really care about the draft at all for two days but I will say, the best part of the draft is watching that one presumed high 1st round draft pick slide into the 2nd. Especially if he went they are at the draft. Nothing is more sad/amusing to me than the sit through the whole first round, have to come back for a second day in a much emptier waiting room and after all that, have to play for the Jets. Looking at you Geno Smith. Now that’s drama worth watching!
After stuffing our faceholes full of donuts over at Whalers on Sunday, we decided to make a day of it and see what else was in the area (After all, donuts are always a nice way to set the foundation for some day drinking.). So, we took a nice 15 minute drive over to Proclamation to see what’s up over there.

During the work week, I’m really a pretty healthy guy. I stick to mostly a “Slow Carb” style diet popularized by Tim Ferriss, one of my two internet life coaches (Joe Rogan being the other). The reason I chose follow this diet was easy, it allows you to be an absolute pig for one day a week. It makes days like the Donuts and Drafts event I attended on Sunday not hurt my girlish figure as much! Gotta keep this temple tight!
And that’s where we start the week. Here’s what to expect from Whalers Brewing, minus the donuts, you missed that boat!

Love the news that was bouncing around that Marshawn Lynch has “privately discussed” joining the Patriots if any deal with the Raiders falls through. I don’t care that he’s been out for a year, he’d still be a harder runner than Blount and he hates talking to the media. Sounds like the perfect Patriots player to me. How great would it be to see him finally have a nice Superbowl winning 1 yard touchdown?
We’re splitting time this week in RI and MA. Off to the Bucket we go for round 1!

A national crisis was finally solved this weekend as Tom Brady’s Super Bowl jersey has been returned! While the video is incredible, just showing how ballsy the thief was, the more interesting thing was that it had before two years earlier and Tom didn’t seem to even care! It’s like Tom was the hot girl in high school and the jersey was me, the jersey being as equally sweaty and dirty. I’m glad he got them back though, since he said something good will come from it. Maybe he’ll auction it for charity, and if he does, The N.E. Brew Guide Foundation will gladly accept the funding.
And here we are, another trip to Rhody for your Wednesday guide.
Continue reading “Ravenous Brewing Co. – Woonsocket, RI”
Yay Monday! This week we move on up the map, out of Connecticut and into Rhode Island for a couple of great places for you to visit!
As a pleasant side effect of my recent quest to try all the brews, I’ve also been able to hit up a bunch of local eateries. This weekend was no exception. After dropping my family off at TF Green so they can go enjoy the fun and warmth of Florida without me (bastards), I traveled on over to PVDonuts to sample their 90’s inspired flavored donuts. We waited in line for about 40 minutes, by far the longest I’ve waited for breakfast food. I can say in all honesty they are absolutely worth the wait. I try parts of 6 different kinds: Cereal Milk, Rice Krispy Treat, Wildberry Pop Tart, Dunkaroos, Cosmic Brownie, and a special Irish Chocolate with Bailey’s. Every damn one was delicious, and if I know anything as well as beer, it’s donuts. So, get your ass over there.
With a full stomach ready to roll, lets dive into Grey Sail!

So, did you watch the Oscars? I didn’t! I heard the movie about being in movies won a bunch. Hollywood sure loves to pat itself on the back, eh? Good thing they took that important best movie one away from them in the most awkward way possible and gave it to the movie with Cottonmouth in it! In case you’re not a Marvel dork like me, Mahershala Ali plays the villain “Cottonmouth” in Luke Cage and that’s all I knew him from. I know, I’m super cultured. Deadpool was my favorite movie last year and not a single award! Sure everyone thought La La Land and Moonlight were the bees knees, but I hear both were severely lacking in the all important “dick joke” category. But you know what they say, different strokes…
OK, enough of the amazing Oscar commentary and onto the beer!
