Does anyone know of any decent beer pubs in Providence, RI? Heading there this weekend and would like to try a few beers from the area if there are any to be had!

Maybe one of the R.I. guys can give you the inside scoop on them

http://www.trinitybrewhouse.com/ makes some damn fine beer. I have yet to visit though but I hear it is cool. Union Station is pretty good too and is right on the riverwalk. I went there the other night during water fire and sampled their flight. It was quality beer, although it didn''t strike me as anything special.

I have yet to find any really cool places to have a pint though. But the quality of beer here is as good as in the Northwest.

trinity, as tenchiro linked to above, is probably your best bet if you are partial to a more authentic brew pub experience. i've been there many, many times over the years and have never been disappointed. union square is trying to go upscale a bit, to their detriment, i think but their beers are reasonable, if somewhat uninspired. if you aren't interested in craft but are just looking for a good pub, the wild colonial on south water street is a kinda dive-ie, low key fave of mine.

If you can venture out of providence and make it to Warwick near the airport, hit up Track 84..you'll be glad you did.

Doherty's east ave cafe in Pawtucket is an awesome place to get a beer and something to eat. It's about 10 minutes from Providence. I wasn't impressed by Track 84 they have a decent selection but I wouldn't bother going there again. Trinity and Union Station are within walking distance of each other both serve ok beer. You can pick up 6ers of Trinity Ipa at most local liqour stores. But Doherty's is probably your best bet. Or you could check out this link and make your own decision.

I liked the Track for it's beer selection however their food was limited to sandwiches and it was very noisy (couldn't have a conversation loud). The new brewer at Union Station is fairly adept at his craft and (from what i've been hearing) has been putting on some very tasty brews. Trinity is ok (try the nachos!) but i have never really been a huge fan of their beer. Dohertys East Ave Cafe in Pawtucket has over 100 beers (about 40 on tap) and their food is fantastic.
