Shawn Westhoven carefully selects only those beers, wines, and cocktails that best complement our menu and concept. He sources his spirits from local brewers, vineyards and distillers whenever possible and changes them seasonally to help create a genuine, unique guest experience that cannot be enjoyed elsewhere. Shawn also introduced and leads an extensive educational and training program for employees who want to be certified as wine experts. Shawn holds a culinary degree from Johnson and Wales and a hospitality degree from Ohio State University. He lives in Newport, Rhode Island with his wife Alison.
