John Almonte
The Peddler of Pubs

John is the guy behind Storm’s promotions at restaurants and bars across Rhode Island. From Coventry, RI, John credits his high school buddy and long-time friend Matt for his interest in craft beer. A few tours, tastings, and brewing documentarieslater, he found himself at our Visitors Center tasting counter and was instantly inspired. In recent years, John (much like Zach) is a songwriter and guitarist and has been a part of the RI local music scene and furthered his craft beer tasting while doing that as well. In present days, you’ll find him at local bars and restaurants cheering loudly for his beloved Boston Bruins and more importantly running promotions and educating locals and tourists on all of our craft brews.
