Providence is full of breweries – as is the state – so we’ll forgive you if you’ve never heard of Beer On Earth in North Kingstown. A quick review: Professional baker Paul DiBiase joined forces with veteran educator Adam Henderson. They bought their first beer-making equipment from Ocean State Job Lot. Last summer, they opened Beer On Earth in Paul’s already-functioning bakery.
One year later, they moved their operations to Providence. Their new location on Fountain Street is slightly smaller, but it’s far better suited to beer-making.
“Our transition to Providence couldn’t have been smoother,” says Adam. “We are now able to package our beer in cans, which was a dream of ours in North Kingstown, but just not possible given the layout.”
The new Beer On Earth is blessed with a cozier taproom and a surreal and colorful mural by artist Paul Endres, Jr. The team is quickly developing new brews, using two large wine barrels, and they have begun distributing their beers to pubs and eateries around the city.
While the move from South County to the capital is a major geographic shift, the pair has appreciated the mix of old and new fans. “We have seen so many familiar faces from our days in North Kingstown,” says Adam. “We are also seeing repeat customers who live in the neighborhood and are excited to have a new brewery in the spot. They are digging the beers and like the way that we have made the space our own.” 425 West Fountain Street
