This place was only a few blocks from our hotel in Newport. The beer selection was OK, all the macros and a few local beers. The local beers were Extreme Coastal. I ordered the hampburger and it was very good and my wife ordered the Phily Cheese Steak sandwich, it was also great. I tried the clam chouder on a recomindation. I am not a big clam chouder person but it was good. My wife ordered a mixed drink and was given the wrong one and the waitress offered us a free desert, but were too full to order any.

Brick Alley really isn't a beer bar. It is a very popular and busy restaurant with great service, good value (salad bar with entrees),& huge menu. It gets really busy, but if you sit at the bar, you usually don't have to wait too long for a table. Lobster rolls are the main reason to come to Brick Alley- best in the Tri state area-just claw, no tail meat, served with steak fries and coleslaw.

If you are looking for craft beer in downtown Newport- head to Yesterday's about 1 block north and one block east or The Wharf Pub and Raw Bar on Bowen's Wharf about 5 blocks south. Also check out Broadway-Norey's and Malt.

Awesome New England clam chowder. Lobster roll was really good but the lobstacado roll was killer. Nice atmosphere and good service. Beer selection is okay, but the barware was subpar - several nucleation points on the glass walls. Have your food here and then walk on over to Norey's for your beer.

We made a day trip down to Newport on this unseasonable winter day. This was my first time there and I had checked out BA beforehand for some ideas to get lunch.

Brick Alley is located on the busy and centrally located Thames Street. The restaurant itself is rather large and showcases an eclectic decor of sports memorabilia, Rhode Island portraits and odds & ends. There are some nice football helmets, jerseys, pictures, etc.

The menu is extensive and the food was really good. I started off with the Baked Stuffed Clams a la Portuguese that were awesome, definitely recommended. I also had the Lobster Bisque that was tasty and flavorful. I ordered the Lobster Roll, which had too much mayo for my liking, but there was an ample of amount of lobster meat.

The beer selection is solid with approximately 15 drafts and 30 bottles. The draft selection featured Sam Adams, Sam Adams Seasonal, Magic Hat #9, Harpoon IPA, Bass, Blue Moon, Heavy Seas Loose Cannon, Guinness, Narragansett, Newport Storm Seasonal, Newport Blueberry and Newport Amber Ale.

There are some interesting bottle options like Newport Cyclone Series, Chimay Rogue Ale, Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout, Westmalle and Lindemans Framboise.

I was really happy with this place and enjoyed a nice lunch. Good food, beers and atmosphere. Worth checking out if in the area.
