Black Hat Brew Works – Bridgewater, MA

Saturday Night I hit up the Colosseum in Providence to check out Arcade Revival, a pop up old school arcade game set up that was going on all weekend that also happened to feature Revival Brewing. I recommend giving them a follow, that event was a bunch of fun, there was never a long wait for a game, and the people watching was fantastic. I believe I saw Jareth the Goblin King there, it was uncanny.

And that’s the last bit of RI I had. For the next two weeks,  I’m bringing it back home to Mass for 4 big features. There are now over 100 visitable breweries in the state according to Mass Brew Bros, so I’ve got a lot of work cut out for me.

So lets start super local for me, with Black Hat Brew Works.

Grey Sail Brewing – Westerly, RI

Yay Monday! This week we move on up the map, out of Connecticut and into Rhode Island for a couple of great places for you to visit!

As a pleasant side effect of my recent quest to try all the brews, I’ve also been able to hit up a bunch of local eateries. This weekend was no exception. After dropping my family off at TF Green so they can go enjoy the fun and warmth of Florida without me (bastards), I traveled on over to PVDonuts to sample their 90’s inspired flavored donuts. We waited in line for about 40 minutes, by far the longest I’ve waited for breakfast food. I can say in all honesty they are absolutely worth the wait. I try parts of 6 different kinds: Cereal Milk, Rice Krispy Treat, Wildberry Pop Tart, Dunkaroos, Cosmic Brownie, and a special Irish Chocolate with Bailey’s. Every damn one was delicious, and if I know anything as well as beer, it’s donuts. So, get your ass over there.

With a full stomach ready to roll, lets dive into Grey Sail!

Union Station Brewery – Providence, RI

So, did you watch the Oscars? I didn’t! I heard the movie about being in movies won a bunch. Hollywood sure loves to pat itself on the back, eh? Good thing they took that important best movie one away from them in the most awkward way possible and gave it to the movie with Cottonmouth in it! In case you’re not a Marvel dork like me, Mahershala Ali plays the villain “Cottonmouth” in Luke Cage and that’s all I knew him from. I know, I’m super cultured. Deadpool was my favorite movie last year and not a single award! Sure everyone thought La La Land and Moonlight were the bees knees, but I hear both were severely lacking in the all important “dick joke” category. But you know what they say, different strokes…

OK, enough of the amazing Oscar commentary and onto the beer!
