We are excited to showcase our selection of locally brewed beers at the 37th Annual Autumnfest. This historic Rhode Island event takes place Columbus Day weekend at the WWII Memorial Park in Woonsocket.
Originally hosted by Budweiser, the Autumnfest Rotary Beer Garden has recognized the growing popularity of craft beer in the recent years and has become committed to providing more options for of age attendees. Storm, located in the North End of Newport, will feature five of their year-round and seasonal brews at the Autumnfest Rotary Beer Garden in addition to offering multiple raffles throughout the weekend with prizes ranging from complimentary tours of the brewery, to winning a brew day with Brew Master and co-founder Derek Luke!
As Rhode Island’s oldest, continually operating microbrewery, we've hand-crafted more that 60 unique brews since our inception in 1999. Our small and local approach to brewing continues to excite craft beer enthusiasts as we continue to focus on brewing in our own unique way. It’s this enthusiasm and experience that captured the Rotary Club of Woonsocket’s attention as they extended the invitation for the brewery to join the 37th Annual celebration. “We hope that this is the start of a long-term relationship between the Rotary Club and Newport Storm,” says Mike Dubois, director of the Autumnfest Rotary Beer Garden, “we look forward to our partnership with Storm and the selection of quality craft beers they plan to contribute to making this a successful year.”
The crew here loves bacon. In fact, our 2014 fall office meeting, which was dominated by the smokey meat, is now referred to as “Baconfest”. When we started experimenting 2 years ago with a hardwood smoked barley, it was only a matter of time before it showed up in our beer...We promise to tell you more about our latest Annual Release brew, but for right now think chocolate, think bacon and think "man, I've got to get to the brewery to try this!"
Dark nights call for dark brews so we'll be keeping the brewery open late to try this bewitching brew along with other festive favorites like our R.I.P.umpkin and Oktoberfest Marzen Lager. We'll also have a few rounds of spook-tacular Halloween movie trivia so take advantage of 13 Nights of Halloween on ABC Family and Ballard Park's Halloween Movie Night to brush up on those random tid-bits and classic quotes! (21+ event, free admission to brewery)
