A portfolio of 16 craft beers, 9 distilled spirits and a multi-state distribution reach puts them among today’s leaders in the brewing and distilling industry.

This delicious spirit can be enjoyed in over 500 restaurants and bars, including Walt Disney World’s EPCOT, and as the official rum of the New York Mets.

Newport Craft also distills a dry style Gin, an unaged, pure moonshine, and a gluten-free Vodka.
Adding to their portfolio, Newport Craft has acquired Braven Brewing Company and Radiant Pig Beer Company which has more than doubled the amount of beer production and aided with their footprint in the New York market. To accompany the expansion of their portfolio, a $7 million construction project is set to break ground. The multi-million dollar project will include renovations to the existing outdoor covered patio and the addition of a spacious rooftop beer garden in order to better accommodate the rapidly growing number of visitors the brewery sees daily. Once the beer garden is complete, guests will be able to enjoy the best view in the city, surrounded by family and friends, while watching the sun set over the iconic Pell Bridge and glistening Narragansett Bay.
