Where to buy Smug beer

You can find smug brews on tap in and around Rhode Island, at places like The Malted Barley in Westerly, the Thirsty Beaver in Cranston, The Slow Rhode in Providence, and The Wharf Pub in Newport.

Traitorade Key Lime Sour

Smug Brewing has made some headlines for being, playfully, we hope, smug about Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski making their way down to Tampa for their next football adventure.

According to Smug Brewing, the Traitorade is packed with Florida key limes. "The aroma, of this beer alone, reminds you of getting old and having to retire in Florida" ...

Yeah, that's not pointed or anything. Here's another Traitorade Key Lime Sour gem, "We developed a beer with the right amount of sour, and a little bit of saltiness."

We see what you are doing there, Smug Brewing. We see.

All of that aside, strong work on the beer can artwork.

Brewery Food/Menu

They bring in food trucks. You can bring in your own food to this taproom.

Brewery Entertainment & Events

Smug Brewing offers private and semi-private events. Semi-private is a reserved space when the brewery is open. Private is for when the brewery is not regularly open. They can accommodate up to 90 people, which is (hopefully) more than enough for your baby shower or bachelor party.

A private rental will get you a dedicated Smug staff member to serve you beer. For both, you must take care of your own food, either by bringing it yourself, or, working with a local RI food truck.

Brewery Merch & Swag

Smug Brewing sells pint glasses, t-shirts, hoodies, you know, typical brew swag. Breweries seem to love a good baseball tee to sell. Hats and stickers round out the offering.

Dog-inspired Craft Beer and Brewery names

In the eternal fight for man's (and woman's) best friendship, are two forces of nature, beer, and dogs. Craft brewers around the United States have done an excellent job of marrying the two, either in their chosen brewery name, a specific craft beer, or, in the case of Everett, Massachusetts' own Bone Up Brewing Company, creating a whole craft beer series dedicated to dogs.

What is the best beer for brats?

Such a good question for fall, as nothing says NFL Football Sundays like grilling up a dozen flavorful beer brats for the game. Sure, burgers and ketchup-drenched hot dogs are acceptable fare, but why settle for second place when you can boil brats and sweet onions in your favorite beer? Besides, bratwurst, like your liver on Sundays (from 1pm-4pm), could use a good beer bath.
