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!

New year, new guide! Hopefully you’re all worn out on sports and done reading about how the Patriots blew it (my take: Belichick’s stubborn fault), so lets talk about beer!
I stopped into River Roost Brewery in VT on my way home from a miserably cold obstacle race Saturday. Let’s dig into the much more enjoyable part of my weekend!

It’s that time of year again, it’s Pumpkin flavored everything time! I know some beer snobs turn their noses up at the thought of it, but screw them! There are a ton of really good beers out there that deserve their due. That’s why I’m sending out the Bat Signal: Tell me which New England based pumpkin beer is your favorite! I’d like to have a taste test and crown a NE Pumpkin Beer Champ!
With that call to action out of the way, let’s roll back the clock a bit to while I was on vacation. Join me for lunch at Hobbs Tavern & Brewing Co.!

We’re back! A little vacation and I’m ready to give right into it. We even have a nice little back up of posting, so you’ll be getting a bunch of new posts coming up!
Quick note, I attended the Brew at the Zoo event at Roger Williams Park Zoo on Saturday and although it seemed to be quite oversold (far too long of lines at every table) it was an overall well done event with a lot of cool folks to chat with from a bunch of great breweries. I’d like for them to sell about 50-100 fewer tickets next go around though, so maybe I could spend some time checking out the animals instead of waiting for the next tasters.
Now let’s get down to business, let me tell you about Mayflower Brewing.

So, in a rare turn of events, I took a weekday trip! And here I thought this would be a light month. Hooray for keeping those expectations low and delivering anyway!
Now a place that needs zero introduction…
Continue reading “Treehouse Brewing Co. – Charlton, MA”
Good day for the ol’ Brew Guide today, as we finally hit 1,000 followers on Instagram! As a token of my appreciation for all the love and support I’ve received, I plan on running a 1k giveaway starting next Monday! Why not just start it now, you ask? I’m going to try to curate some excellent hard to find brew, and that takes the extra mile. As a hint, there will be some recent purchases from Trillium included, which you may have seen a post about. I’ll also drop hints on my Instagram story once everything has been acquired. So if you don’t already, make sure you’re following @nebrewguide on Insta and you might get hooked up!
Now let’s head to the whaling hub of Massachusetts, with Moby Dick Brewing in New Bedford!

August is going to be very busy, unfortunately not really in the brewery hopping sense. Some people happen to be getting married and are really putting a damper on the ol’ Brew Guide travels. But, towards the of the month, you’ll be getting a bunch of new spots as I head up north for a whole week. I know I’ll at least be hitting Tuckermans (and might actually take enough pictures to post about it this time) and be revisiting Woodstock Inn, but I need more suggestions! If it’s an hour(ish) away from Conway, NH I’ll take the drive. Post in the comments or shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org)!
Speaking of finally visiting places and taking enough pictures (barely), I spent some time at Night Shift on Saturday…let’s talk about it!
Continue reading “Night Shift Brewing – Everett, MA”
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!
Continue reading “Newport Storm – Newport, RI”
