Here’s a partial list of participants/donors:
|Foolproof Brewing Company (RI) –– The largest-capacity brewer in RI, Foolproof’s no stranger to awards, either. A recent survey of the two best beers in each of the 50 states named Foolproof’s Farmhouse Ale as one of RI’s top two. Barstool, Raincloud, and Backyard (uh, make that Backyahd; this is a RI beer, after all) … from pale ales to robust porters, Foolproof’s got the winning brew.|
|Greenwich Cove Meadery (RI) –– Not only is mead tasty, but it has quite the history. Raw New England honey and whole fruit is turned into a sweet, smooth and potent drink by three generations of family and a few friends. Learn how the fermented brew played a role in the Revolution. Some of the honey comes from hives placed on Nathanael Greene’s birthplace in Potowomut. Take a sip of the past in a glass! Our meads are produced with local New England raw honeys and without adding sulfites.|
|Harpoon Brewery (MA) –– Harpoon Brewery is an American brewery founded in 1986. The brewery is best known for its Harpoon India Pale Ale. It brews multiple other year-round beers including the award-winning Dark, UFO Hefeweizen, UFO Raspberry Hefeweizen, UFO White, Leviathan IPA Rich & Dan's Rye IPA, and Boston Irish Stout, its latest full-time offering. Harpoon has four seasonal beers, such as an Octoberfest Marzen style Ale and The Long Thaw White IPA, a style blends the spiciness of a Belgian Wit and the American hop character of an IPA.|
