With so many local breweries up-coming here in Rhode Island, we like to venture out once and awhile but still keep it New England. Boston has become one of the most popular craft beer/cocktail and foodie cities over the years and seems like there is always something new to check out – and what’s best is you don’t have to travel that far for it!

Here is what we think you should check out and some breweries we carry on draft currently at The Wharf Pub.
