We're posting a brewery a week to celebrate fall (and the fact that brewery tours and tastings just seem cozier and more fun when the leaves start to change!).
Today's brewery is...
Crooked Current may be the smallest brewery in the smallest state, but it has a lot going for it. Named after the often crooked ways of Rhode Island politicians, they brew beers with fanciful names like “Extortion Eggnog Milk Stout” and “Immorality Pale Ale.” Plus, the flavors are super creative (Neapolitan ice cream flavored ale, anyone?). Visit them in Pawtucket to taste their brews.
From the Mouth of the Brewer, Nicole Pelletier:
The Oatmeal Raisin Stout is our most popular beer on tap; it’s designed to taste just like the cookie it’s inspired by. It began as a winter seasonal but was brought back this past July as a year round offering. It is a dry, light bodied stout brewed with cinnamon sticks and vanilla beans. It is not cloyingly sweet or syrup-like and could be enjoyed paired with something that does have a hint of sweetness — for example: slow cooked barbecue ribs. In fact, reducing the beer and adding it for some extra flavor to a homemade barbecue sauce is also a great idea!
Tastings: Thurs., 5–7 p.m., Fri., 5–8 p.m., Sat., 1–5 p.m. Guests get a brewery pint glass along with three samples for $8.
