Cheers for Secret Beers

Preview unreleased brews – and give your feedback – at The Guild’s tasting room in Pawtucket


You’ve probably heard that Narragansett Beer has finally made its triumphant return to brewing in Rhode Island. Yes, The Guild in Pawtucket is now home to Narragansett’s specialty brewing, canning and keg facilities. But it also has several other brew partners on the premises, and when you visit you can preview beers that aren’t widely known to the public just yet. The tasting room has been open since March, with a rotating variety of new seasonal brews on tap from the six partner breweries (Narragansett, Newburyport, Farmer Willie’s, Sons of Liberty, Devil’s Purse and Great North Aleworks, as well as a soon-to-be-announced seventh partner you already know and love). Additionally, this month you can stop by and check out selections from their new, experimental small-batch brew system. These exclusive in-house offerings allow the partner brewers to collaborate and tinker with new recipes that patrons can sample before anyone else. Plus there’s live music and food trucks every weekend at the Guild, as well as a bevy of upcoming events and beer releases. It might be a good idea to stop by before the secret’s really out.
