This is no pub crawl; this is a fine libation experience.
Newport is brimming over with local lore related to interesting places, then and now, to imbibe. On this tour you will hear about Newport’s libation history. It once housed dozens of distilleries; had a unique place during prohibition, and there are legendary stories about cocktail-enjoying socialites and sailors alike. You will be delivered in style (and safely) to current establishments that are lovely places, often with a majestic view or a notable place in history to sample their finest wine, cocktails and brews. These are places that only rare tourists experience; they are either hidden gems or known primarily by locals, or both. This is no pub crawl; this is a fine libation experience. Dressing well is important. No t-shirts or athletic shoes please. This is a three-hour afternoon tour.
The Tour season is April to Nov. 15.
