Saturday, January 25, 2020
We are excited to host the eighth annual Rhode Island Brew Fest, a celebration of American craft breweries featuring the best brews the Ocean State has to offer. Join us on Saturday, January 25, 2020 as we host 55+ breweries with over 175 beers to sample from. The event will have two, three-hour sampling sessions from 1:00 - 4:00 p.m and 5:30 - 8:30 p.m. Each session will feature live music, local vendors and a food court.
WaterFire Arts Center
2019 was the first year in the new venue, The WaterFire Arts Center. The impeccably renovated Arts Center has high ceilings and massive windows showcasing the rich history of this building’s industrial past while clean lines and contemporary finishes clearly define this space as a cutting-edge event venue.
Rhode Island Brewer's Guild
We proudly support the attending brewers by purchasing all of their product at the festival. Unlike many beer festivals there are no booth fees for brewers, we actually pay them to participate on top of donating a portion of every ticket sold to the Rhode Island Brewers Guild.
The Rhode Island Brew Fest is a 21+ event. No one under the legal age will be admitted, including minors, children, infants and babies. No pets allowed.
Extreme Weather Policy
Our events are held rain or shine. However, there is always the potential for extreme or severe weather conditions. Event organizers will do as much as we can to ensure the experience is as safe as possible. In the event of severe weather, the event may be delayed as race officials consult public safety officers. If there is more than a short delay, if conditions persist, or the forecast calls for extreme weather, event officials reserve the right to alter or cancel the event. Any decision to cancel an event is done as an absolute last resort and is made collectively with local risk management, police, fire & rescue, and medical personnel as appropriate. In such situations, there will be NO REFUNDS as registrants accept any such risk of their entry free when purchasing tickets.
Please check the website, our Facebook page, and your email before the race for any changes or cancellations.
