WHO:    Executive Chef Kyle Stamps of Smoke House and President and Head Distiller Brent Ryan of Newport Storm Brewery are bringing back the annual downtown dinner series celebrating the close ties between friends, microbrews and three original once-a-year dinner menus.

WHAT:    Smoke House, a seasonal hangout spot located front and center on America’s Cup Avenue in downtown Newport, presents the yearly return of the Newport Storm Beer Dinner Series. Executive Chef Kyle Stamps has created three distinct beer dinners showcasing three unique courses, along with a welcome reception of passed appetizers and dessert to end the evening. Each course is expertly paired with beer selections by president and head distiller of Newport Storm Brewery, Brent Ryan. The first dinner will take place on Wednesday, June 22, entitled Hail To The Pig, celebrating favorite varieties of pork bbq from top to bottom. The second dinner, RI Dinner, hosted on Wednesday, August 3, presents a menu inspired by the abundant range of Rhode Island’s native cuisine sourced locally. Finally, on Wednesday, September 21, an early Oktoberfest presents the festive flavors of Germany matched to a line up of specialty Rhode Island brews.

Newport Storm Brewery started in 1999, and continues to be a local mainstay of the Rhode Island craft beer scene. The team prides itself on “keeping things small,” both in their brewing capacity and the size of their distribution. Highlights of the featured pairings include the Hurricane Amber Ale (the first beer from Newport Storm that continues to be one of the most popular), the Oktoberfest, brewed true to the Märzen style, and the Rhode Island Blueberry Beer, made with real Rhode Island blueberries.

Each dinner is $49 per person and begins at 6pm; the full menus are below:
