Mr. Toshiyuki Kiuchi, owner and brewmaster of the Kiuchi Brewery, producer of Hitachino Nest Beers, will be at Norey's at 4pm on Wednesday, July 16th for a Hitachino Nest Tap Takeover. see events for more info

The rules of this restaurant are very simple-no hats, no logo clothing, no takeout.
Think of it as dinner at Chef Tyler's house, and you will have no problems.They are closed on Sundays and open at 4PM the rest of the week.
The best asset of this restaurant is it's staff- bartenders- Scott,Charles, Lucas,Steven, Richard. The wait staff is AMAZING- Jasper and Bubbles and J.T. especially ( plan on eating in his restaurant some day.)
They all take the time to provide you with an experience- the right beverage, the right food, the right atmosphere. Finally, the desserts are amazing. They are made by Norey herself every day. I especially recommend the carrot cake and coconut cake.

The beer is amazing- you never know what is going to be on tap. If you are making a trip here-plan ahead and squeeze in more than one visit.This is also a great beer bar to bring along non beer advocates- great wine, service, and food.

10/10 for service and quality.
Guaranteed the ultimate Belgium selection in New England, with fine dining to a company it.
Norey's dominates all bars from Providence to Brooklyn. This is hands down the best craft beer spot in southern New England.
Needs more North West coast breweries to balance it out.

Done.

This place is absolutely amazing! I loved the atmosphere and the lighting, definitely a great date spot. It is cozy and everyone that served us, from the bartender, Lucas, to our server, Jasper, was friendly and knowledgeable.

I am not much a beer expert, but my boyfriend is, and I was kind of trying to impress him with my knowledge of beer bars in the area. I definitely did. He travels around the world for his job and was beyond impressed with the selection. In fact, he mentioned that he had never been to a place with such a wide selection of great quality beers.

There is a wide variety of beers on tap and they are all listed on a big chalk board behind the bar, which I liked, and made me think that they probably change them all the time. We didn't try any of the bottled beers but the list was extensive. There was an entire menu of bottled beers from all around the world!

We are definitely coming back next date night to try something new!

Easily the best beer destination I've been to in years. Can't wait to go back. If you're into serious craft beers in a really cool setting, this is your place.

The bar absorbs you into its atmosphere. Get comfortable in your stool, because you are staying a while. The place is kind of funky, yet warming, with cool beer label etched mirrors, rich wood, and even a little bit of a 50's diner feel. Cool vibe with laid back music and old movies playing the night of our visit. Norey's lends itself to starting conversations.

Quality and selection are second to none. Beers from all over the world on tap - and the good stuff. The tap lines are nothing but quality. St. Bernardus, the latest Stone one-off, Mikeller, Green Flash, Founders, and some Belgian rarities I was not even familiar with highlighted the lineup on our visit. The bottle selection is incredible also. I recommend treating yourself to one of their rarities. I could not resist in spending a few extra $$ on a Bommen & Granaten during the visit. Aged WWS, several Mikellers, rare Founders, odd Belgians and hard to get one-offs populate their bottle list.

The service was second to none. Scott was the bartender this night and the man knows his beer. Very knowledgeable about their products, good recommendations, and obvious industry knowledge. Not to mention, he seemed like a plain good guy.

We did not have any food during our visit since we had just eaten dinner, but based on the quality of the rest of the establishment, I would expect it follows suit as well.

Check this place out - you won't be disappointed. Having visited some of the better beer destinations in New England, it's right up there with the likes of Novare Res and Ebeneezer's.

I went to Noreys last weekend for the first time with a few old friends of mine who had come to visit me from New York City. Knowing these guys have a lot of great bars where they live I wanted to take them somewhere unique and special in my area that they might enjoy and after just a little bit of online research I found Noreys.
This place had one of the coolest beer selections we had ever seen, everything from imported German, Belgium, Norwegian, and Italian beers on tap (21 in total) and over 100 rare hard to find beers by the bottle I spent some quality time looking through all of them while we all caught up and had some good laughs.
The bartender told us the list of brews is changing pretty much every week and I plan on making the trip back to Norey's soon to check out whats new!

Can I guarantee that that Norey's dominates any bar in the Tri-State area. This is hands down the best craft beer spot in the Northeast. Quality? Quantity?

Done.

This place is the nirvana of craft beer in Rhode Island.

Popping into the state and looking for a good Belgian? This is the place.

Norey's is beer heaven. It's basically a business created to help you drink the best beers in the world.

It can be a little intense. You've got a whole bunch of 9-10% ABV Belgians on draft, a few high octane Double IPAs and maybe a Barleywine on draft. These aren't beers to throw down. These are beers you're going to spend some time with and enjoy.

If this place was a car dealership, it would be selling Zondas and Koenigseggs, then occasionally boring themselves with a Ferrari or Lamborghini. I'm a craft beer fanatic and I'm amazed at all the beers that show up that I've never heard of before.

They've recently expanded the number of taps to 21 and brought in a cask kegorator, but the selection really isn't getting much softer.

If you're looking for the qualitative BEST selection of beer in Rhode Island (and probably a good distance beyond), this is your spot.
