The second annual RI Craft Beer Week runs now through March 12th with new releases, tastings, food trucks, special dinners, bingo, and craft events. Gail Ciampa has all the details of this statewide event at the ProJo.
All during Craft Beer Week, you can do one or two beer crawls, or even the Rhode Map Challenge, which requires you to visit all 36 participating breweries and brewpubs. Download the RI Brewery Passport, complete the visits and you are entered to win prizes.
“One of the many benefits of living in Rhode Island is that you can travel basically anywhere in the entire state in under an hour,” said Gary Richardson, executive director of the RI Brewers Guild.
Events in the Providence area include:
Monday, March 6, 7pm to 9pm: “Name Your Beer” Trivia night at Narragansett Brewing. The winning team will get to name a new beer at the 271 Tockwotton Street taproom.
