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.

Very solid bar with a great selection of craft beers. The best in Newport RI. Bartenders are all knowledgeable about beer, and they have quite the food menu as well.

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.

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.

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!
