Had drinks here at night after dinner. There is a long bar down the side, then some tables in the rest of the space . The draft list was heavy on Belgian and European imports. They also had a cask beer. It was Christmas time so they had the draft list divided between Christmas themed beers and regular. All high quality, top notch beers, but you pay for it, considering most are rare imports. $10-$12 for 10 oz pours of some of the beers. Service was good. We didn't eat dinner, only ordered desserts, so I won't rate the food.

This is the best beer bar in Southern New England. Not only does it showcase World Class Beer in 20 taps, 1 cask, & 100 plus bottles, it's also a 5 star neighborhood bistro with a menu which changes daily. If I'm going a drink a beer on tap that is only found in Europe, I don't want to eat a burger or nachos. I want a great meal to go along with it. Norey's has the best chef on Broadway and everything is made in house including the house smoked chicken wings. The entire staff able to help you choose a beer based on your past experience or lead you to experiencing something new.
Anyone can buy beer in a liquor store or a brewery. Drinking quality beer in a restaurant is an experience. Norey's offers free live music Wed. Americana, Blues, Bluegrass &
Thurs. World Class Jazz. There are also World Class Tap Takeovers- a brewery or a style including ciders, sours, holiday beers from around the world. Takeover range from 8 taps to the full 20 taps and stay up until they are gone- usually about 2 weeks.

Norey's is my favorite spot in Newport for serious craft beer. It is tucked away on Broadway Street amongst dozens of other bars and restaurants, but it stands out once you step inside. Upon entering, you are greeted by nearly impossible beers to find on draft in Rhode Island like De Dolle (yes Stille Nacht!), BFM, and OEC. I was also there for their Stout Tap Takeover when they had Black Albert Russian Imperial Stout, KBS Stout, Bourbon County, Speedway Stout, My Blueberry Nightmare, and other tasty treats. The food is also very tasty, especially the Smoked Wings and Baked Quattro Formaggi. There are other bars serving decent craft brews in Newport, but the quality doesn’t compare. I'm not sure how they get this kind of selection, but I hope they keep doing it.

The rules of this restaurant are very simple-no hats, no logo clothing, no takeout.
Think of it as dinner at Chef Tyler Cullen's house, and you will have no problems.They are closed on Sundays and open at 4PM the rest of the week.
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.

By far my favorite spot in Newport for a drink. It's a little off the beaten path, but well worth the visit - especially for a beer drinker with a palate for the obscure or unconventional brews; they have a huge selection available, whether tap, cask, or draft. The food is also fantastic - seriously, try the hummus.

The staff is extremely knowledgeable and personable - they've made a couple of recommendations to me that were absolutely spot on.

Seriously, why are you not there right now?

If you are ever in newport or in the state of rhode island for that matter go out of your way to get to noreys. If you fancy yourself a sour/funky/off the beaten path hard to find beer lover this is the place for you. Fun atmosphere, zero pretension, military discounts, great staff. its heaven on broadway. They also have a phenomenal wine list and even better food. We went during folk festival and will be returning every time we happen back into newport. A truly rare gem.

One of the best beer bars I have been to. The idea of 'Tap Takeovers' is genius. And aside from that, there is a huge list of a multitude of styles. Definitely something for everyone's taste. Food is always fresh, knowledgable staff, and great vibe. A must-see for any beer enthusiast!

I've been to Norey's several times now, and I have always had a great experience. It is easily the best place in all of Rhode Island to for good beer. Between the on tap and bottled selections, there is always a wide variety of rare and unique choices. Tyler and his staff are very knowledgeable and are always willing to provide recommendations. The appetizers, particularly the boneless ribs, are all delicious. The meals and deserts are top notch as well. If you are looking for a great place to relax, eat a great meal, and pair everything with an excellent beer selection, then this is the place to go.
