“Big Beer Love in the Smallest of States” Rhode Island. We here in Rhode Island know a thing or two about being independent. As the first of the colonies to declare independence from British rule, we’ve set the tone for what it means to buck the system. That tradition holds true with our craft beer community. Rhode Islanders always root for the little guys, including our microbrewers. Now you can be a part of the community. Join us and you’ll be on your way to sharing upcoming beer fests and events with your friends and family across the Ocean State.
