Stopped in for a tasting and worth the $10. It included 4 tastings and a pint glass. Beer was good and we really enjoyed the tour. They also have a rum distillery at the brewery.

Newport Storm proved an attractive brewery. The tasting area outdoors was nice, even with a view. The brews were enjoyable, although not matured enough to our taste. However, very interestingly, their RUM proved excellent. We did not get to taste their whiskey... Enjoyable concept.
