Beer’d Brewing Co. – Stonington, CT

So, we can officially call this Stella storm a bust, right? At least in my area, it snowed all day then got warm enough to rain and basically clear off the road. Shouldn’t complain though, as I was “working from home” I was able to catch up on the new season of Always Sunny. All I have to say is the waterpark one was the best, the Making a Murderer one was incredibly well done, and WTF Dennis!! I also fiddled with the site a bit too (woo Insta & FB widgets!). Super productive as you can see. It’s a good thing no one else seemed to want to do any work today either!

Crooked Current Brewery – Pawtucket, RI

 

I can’t lie, in my early to mid 20’s I hated Rhode Island. Every time I went to a bar in the Providence area, there seemed to be this snotty hipster vibe that made me wish explosive bowel issues on all of its flannel shirted inhabitants. Yea, it was that bad. As time has gone by and I’ve explored more, there are now more places that I enjoy in Rhode Island than don’t. Either I was going to the wrong places (likely), the scene down there has chilled out a bit (it’s possible), or I have grown up a bit (unlikely, although I will toss on a flannel shirt on the rare occasion).

With that trip down memory lane outta the way, I found myself in the lovely city of Pawtucket this past weekend at the self-proclaimed, and most likely accurate, “smallest brewery in the smallest state” Crooked Current. Look for the “Brewery” sandwich-board sign on the side of the road, or you may miss it!

Also, check out the Esquire article IS IT POSSIBLE TO DRINK AT EVERY SINGLE BREWERY IN ONE STATE IN JUST ONE DAY?. It’s a journey through RI that I would like to embark on myself one day…for purely journalistic reasons, of course.

To the guide!
