Newport Craft Brewing & Distilling Co.

Newport Craft Brewing & Distilling Co. Founded in 1999, Newport Craft Brewing Co. was the original production craft brewery in Rhode Island. We created more than 100 distinctive beers while keeping things local and authentic. From our large selection of brews made with Rhode Island grown ingredients, to beers aged in rum barrels, the brewery has been in the vanguard of craft brewing for nearly 20 years. In 2006, Newport Craft Distilling Co. began distilling craft spirits. We were the first distillery in Rhode Island in 135 years. We currently produce gin, amaro, single barrel rum, moonshine and whiskey. Distilling, aging and bottling is all done in our facility in Newport, RI. All of our spirits are gluten free.

  Thomas Tew Rum
Thomas Tew Rum is inspired by the craftsmanship of past time. It is slowly made in a small pot still to replicate the rum which would have been produced in Newport in the past. The still, along with the dark molasses, temperate climate, and local water combine to create a spirit that hasn’t been available for over a century. One sip of this flavorful, dark rum and you’ll wonder how this tradition could have ever disappeared.
