The Coastal Extreme Brewing Company was started in 1999 by four graduates of Colby College. During his college days the head brewer, Derek Luke, reacquired a home brewing kit he had given his sister and quickly went to work brewing and passing his knowledge along to the company's president, Brent Ryan. As Graduation grew near and the cold reality of post-collegiate life set in Luke and Ryan knew that they could turn their affinity for beer and their new found ability to make it into a viable alternative to unemployment or sitting at a desk answering to "The Man". Of course, they couldn't do it by themselves, so after very little convincing, they got roommate and friends, Mark Sinclair and Will Rafferty to join them.
On Father's Day in 1999, after almost two years of planning and preparation, the first batch of Hurricane Amber Ale was brewed. By July 2nd the first kegs had been shipped to three Newport Restaurants and were quickly tapped and emptied. A little over a month after the release of the first kegs, 6-packs of Hurricane Amber Ale began to hit the shelves. Since then we have expanded our product line and our distribution territory but continue to brew up a storm in our Middletown Brewery.
Our visitors center and tasting room will be open from 12pm ? 5pm daily. We will be closed on Tuesdays. We have both our beer and our rum available for tasting for the first time ever. The cost for a tour and beer tasting is $7 and the cost for a tour and rum tasting is $9. The cost of the tasting includes a souvenir crystal tasting glass. The beer selection will be a combination of our year-round beers, seasonal and limited release selections. We will be featuring two rums not available anywhere but here in addition to the Thomas Tew Rum that is available in Rhodie Island stores. Our tour deck will be open whenever the visitor?s center is open so you can get a great look at the facility even when there isn?t a scheduled tour.
We just received a big shipment of new Newport Storm and, for the first time ever, Thomas Tew branded apparel and accessories. Although we are still in our ?soft? opening period, there is plenty to see and taste at our new 293 JT Connell Rd address.
