Trend No. 2

Local Booze Everywhere


Is there anything more Rhode Island than the do-it-yourself mentality? I think not. With our ever-growing craft brewing industry (greater Providence saw three brewery launches this year alone), it’s hard not to “sample” a new brew every night, especially when they’re available at pretty much every local place worth its salt. I’m not suggesting that you do this... I am also not discouraging you from doing this either. If you were to, for example, take a tour of Providence and perhaps hit up as many places as possible to imbibe as many different local brews as possible, this is a “suggestion” for such a course of action.

Start from the west and head east. It’s no secret, or perhaps it is, that the West Side has a ridiculous amount of good food and drink. To start this adventure, head to Julian’s for the Foolproof Backyahd IPA, brewed right in Pawtucket. Then make a stop over at The Avery and have them make you a mean cocktail using Sons of Liberty Uprising Whiskey (I hear they have a pumpkin infused whiskey this time of year) or grab a Greysale brew. This might be a good time to get some air. Make your way downtown to The Eddy. Jay Carr will pour you the best Revival dry Irish nitro stout you can get your hands – or lips – on. Walk a few blocks and find yourself at Local 121. Their cozy yet lively atmosphere is the perfect companion while imbibing on a Trinity Brewhouse IPA. Call a cab and head over to the English Cellar Alehouse on Thayer and have them pour you a classic to end the night – a Narragansett.
