Event Details

Fourth Annual Rhode Island Brew Fest

We are excited to host the fourth annual Rhode Island Brew Fest, a celebration of American craft breweries featuring the best brews the Ocean State has to offer. Join us on January 30, 2016 as we host 55+ breweries with over 175 beers to sample from. The event will have two, three-hour sampling sessions from 1:00 - 4:00 p.m and 5:30 - 8:30 p.m. Each session will feature local vendors and a food court.

We proudly support the attending brewers by purchasing all of their product at the festival. Unlike many beer festivals there are no booth fees for brewers, we actually pay them to participate on top of donating a portion of every ticket sold to the Rhode Island Brewers Guild.

The Rhode Island Brew Fest is a 21+ event. No one under the legal age will be admitted, including minors, children, infants and babies. No pets allowed.

Travel & Parking

Pawtucket ARmory

With its deep history and indelible ties to its surrounding community, The Pawtucket Armory is the perfect location for the Rhode Island Brew Fest.

Pawtucket has long been challenging Providence as the cultural capitol of the state, and the recent renovations to the Pawtucket Armory helps put Pawtucket closer to the top. The Pawtucket Armory Association in association with the Gamm Theatre has reinvented the historic Armory, an eye-catching castle, into a performing arts center, anchored by the Sandra Feinstein-Gamm Theatre (SFGT) and the Jacqueline M. Walsh School for the Performing and Visual Arts.

There are no officially designated parking areas, however, some recommended lots are available for parking - The Park & Ride off of Route 95, the Pawtucket City Hall parking lot and the Valley Community School lot. (Parking Map).
