It’s Wednesday, which is basically the start of the weekend in beer-world. It’s when the craft beer events start, be them pint nights or tastings or tap takeovers. Paid events usually wait until the weekend, but don’t knock the free events. What could be better than FREE delicious beer (or free swag when you buy a pint)?
Let’s see what’s going on in our area over the next week…(we’re in Southeastern MA, but are willing to drive for good beer!). It’s also Providence Beer Week, so we’ve got a LOT of events to choose from!
Fall Grand Tasting at Chris Gasbarro’s (North Attleboro, MA): If your imbibing interests extend beyond craft beer, this is a can’t-miss event. They’ll have over 100 wines, plus some fancy liquor and some great craft beer tasting options (they shared that there will be at least Rhinegeist, Two Roads, and Mighty Squirrel, but we have tips that there will be more samples available for us beer nerds).
PVD Beer Week Meetup (Providence, RI): For the ladies in the area, Rhode Island Girls Pint Out is hosting a bar crawl to hit the top Beer Week events happening. Click the link to see the event info and keep up with where the group is if you can’t make it to the whole event. This is our pick for craft beer events in Providence tonight, since it lets you hit a bunch in one fell swoop.
Revival Brewery Night at The Malted Barley (Providence, RI): The event says we’ll be able to get free swag, samples, and there will be rare beers on tap, so if you’re a Revival fan, this should probably be your top event for the night.
Ithaca Pint Night at Rogue Island (Providence, RI): Pint Night, buy a beer & get a glass while supplies last! (7pm-close)
Beer & Yoga Night at Foolproof Brewing (Pawtucket, RI): I would go to a lot more yoga classes if they were all at breweries. I need to plan my schedule better.
Hop Commander IPA Pint Night at Morin’s (Attleboro, MA): This super hoppy IPA is a great draw, especially when you add in great food and a free pint glass!
Two Roads Tap Takeover at Julians (Providence, RI): If Two Roads is more your style, head into Providence for the Beer Week event at Julians.
Whaler’s Tap Takeover at The Malted Barley (Providence, RI): If they have the Hazelnut Stout, you MUST order it. Keep an eye on their FB Page because they’ve been updating it daily about each event.
Revival Pint Night at Rogue Island (Providence, RI): Pairing Revival Brewing beers to burgers created by Chef Chad Hart.
Beervana Fest (Cranston, RI): Culminating Providence Craft Beer Week is Beervana at Rhodes on the Pawtuxet. Lots of beer, lots of people, lots of fun. Then hit all the after parties (if you can)!
Narragansett Beer Beervana After-Party at Rogue Island (Providence, RI): The party continues with pint night specials and a killer bar snacks menu paired with ‘Gansett Lager, White Ship White IPA, and Have a Hefeweizen!
More Beervana After Parties at Julians and What Cheer Tavern (Providence, RI), if you can handle more craft beer events.
Wine & Beer Country at Mendon Twin Drive-In (Mendon, MA): If you like country music, a $30 (advance) ticket will get you 30 wines, 5 beers, 5 flavors of popcorn, special wine “glass”, and live country music at the drive-in.
Stocktoberfest with Rhode Island Girls Pint Out and PVD Lady Project (Providence, RI): Beer, food, and supporting a worthy cause with the Rhode Island Community Food Bank. Free to attend, but they request that you RSVP ahead of time.
