Loved the Prohibition event at the Newport Craft. The food, cocktails, beer and entertainment was a lot of fun. The hidden room was a nice surprise.

Cozy Brewpub and tasting room. This brewery has changed my opinion on East Coast Brewery's. Their selection was quite good and I will regret not being able to find it in Colorado. This was also my first experience of a Rum tasting room. Might have...More

A very nice cozy place to have a few beers. The menu was typically a bar food type menu but the staff was pleasant and the beer choices were nice. A great place to check out. I would go again.

We took a little detour and stopped by the brewery on our way to our destination a bit east from here. Nice tap room with tasty beers on tap. The distillery tasting was a nice touch not offered at other breweries.

Another quality brewery started by “a bunch of guys” but determined to do it right! The location (fairly new) was easy to find and great to enjoy the outdoors if you choose. The tasting room offered the latest brews but not all of their line-up,...More

Went on a Saturday and the place was absolutely packed. Parking lot was jammed and The Tasting Room was full of girls celebrating their bachelorette party. It was extremely loud and with that many people to only have one bar open seemed not well thought-out....More
