Longlive Beerworks [Providence, RI]

I've re branded my personal blog to Explore Your Backyard, and even registered a nifty domain (www.exploreyourbackyard.today)! While I'll still be posting my personal adventures, the new focus will result in at least one new spectacular setting each month. These will encompass a video upload on the Explore Your Backyard YouTube channel, along with some extra tid bits cross posted here... with all kinds of cool pictures, commentary, and extra stuff we couldn't fit into the video.
We also launched a Facebook Page for Explore Your Backyard , so be sure to "Like" and follow it. That's where we'll be posting ideas for new locations, when we're about to upload a new video, and where it'll be the easiest to directly communicate... so if you have an idea for a new adventure or want to join in, that'll be the place to do it.
I'm super excited to start vloging with all of you, and I can't wait to share more of my adventures.
Longlive Beerworks (Providence)
by RYAN CALDARONE
Longlive Beerworks is a young brewery pleasantly located at 425 West Fountain Street in Providence-- an exciting area bustling with small businesses and boutique restaurants, a perfect match for a bustling brewery and tasting room. Last saturday was Longlive’s opening, and they were welcomed by an endless stream of excited patrons.
From one to five, the West Fountain Street tasting room was bustling with energy as brewer Armando DeDona welcomed everyone inside. While Longlive Beerworks is a young and budding initiative, Armando’s brewing history is rich and hoppy spanning over fourteen years. One of the founding members of the Rhode Island Brewing Society Armando hopes to spread Longlive Beerworks delicious brews locally within the city, and eventually to craft beer destinations throughout the state.
Inside, we were greeted by decitant trifecta of Longlive Beerworks’ newest beers. Starting with the Milk Milk Stout, which was light and airy, our group differed on a decision between the ‘Nuff Said IPA and the Black Cat Pale Ale-- we simply couldn’t which was more fantastic! As far as IPA’s go, the ‘Nuff Said was surprisingly piney with some subtle citrus and malt notes. The Black Cat was phenomenally aromatic, sweet, tropical, and fruity.
While we were sampling the beer and discussing our favorites, we were chatting up Brian, who is Armando’s assistant brewer and has a decade of brewing experience. Along with our sample glasses we were able to take home, our group left with a couple arm fulls of Longlive Beerworks custom growlers. It’s clear the team is passionate about their brews, and judging by the energy of the crowd there’s certainly something for any palate. Each guest is able to take home up to two 32 ounce Boston Round Growlers, so it’s safe to say we’ll be enjoying our favorite brews for a while after our visit. If craft beer is a passion you share, you’ll find a refreshing drink and plentiful conversation at Longlive Beerworks. It’s worth a stop by their prime location, surrounded with great restaurants and atmosphere to brew a night in Providence.
