Rhode Island beer has definitely seen a swelling of the ranks this past year with the opening of Proclamation Ales and Whalers Brewing down in South County, Sean Larkin’s latest brewpub venture Brutopia, and Pawtucket’s newest brewery Crooked Current. This summer’s Rhode Island Brew Fest, put together by the folks at Gray Matter Marketing, has brought together each Rhode Island brewery and will be the first opportunity for a lot of people to sample some of these new offerings.
What: Rhode Island Brew Fest – Summer, 30+ breweries, live music, local food
When: Sunday, July 20, 2014. One Session from 4:30 – 7:30

Tickets are $45 if purchased in advance, and will increase to $55 at the door. Check out http://www.ribrewfest.com/summer/ for tickets and any additional information.
This festival is also being held in conjunction with Craft Brew Races, a 5k for runners and walkers being held at multiple cities throughout New England this summer. The Providence race will be held the morning of the beer fest, with race registration including entrance to the festival.
