Grey Sail Makes Big Waves with New Tap Room

When I originally wrote about Grey Sail Brewing of Rhode Island a couple of months back, I mentioned that they were working on opening a brand new tap room. Well, the time has come and this Sunday, May 29th, the new space will be ready and officially opening its doors to the public from 12pm – 5pm*. The original tasting room was located in the front of the brewery where visitors could sample beers, get growlers filled and purchase various Grey Sail merchandise. The crew at the brewery definitely utilized its original space to its full potential but the new tap room will offer a larger, more unique setting that new guests and regulars alike can look forward to.

Located in the historic home right next door to the brewery is where you can find the new tap room that has been newly renovated and offers a bigger space, serving up a larger variety of choices than before. The taps will of course feature the full lineup of Grey Sail’s own brews but will also include other local as well as imported craft beers. In addition, they have dedicated taps specifically for local wine from nearby vineyards.

Here is the official press release from owners Alan and Jennifer Brinton:

Grey Sail Tap Room will open its doors at 65 Canal Street, Westerly, RI on Sunday, May 29th.   Located in an historic and iconic house in Westerly’s North End, this house-turned Tap Room maintains its original character and charm with murals decorating the interior walls, marble fireplaces, and a courtyard fountain, while adding a bocce court, hand crafted bar, and a full tap system. 

 Featuring all of Grey Sail Brewing of Rhode Island’s beer, as well as other local craft beer, unique craft imports and local wine, the tap room will be open Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays from 3 to 9p.m. and Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from Noon – 9p.m. 

 I, for one, plan to be there to celebrate the grand opening this Sunday afternoon and hope that you will join me as I prost to Grey Sail Brewing of Rhode Island!
