The South County Brewery Tour

Grab a pint and meet the brewmasters behind these five local breweries


Rhode Island is a little state that sometimes has a big inferiority complex, but South County’s brewers are masters of their craft. We don’t just brew great beer down here, but nationally award-winning brews, with more being poured each year. These five breweries sell pure pleasure by the pint; the friendly mugs you’ll encounter along the way are just frosting on the glass.
