First Pour Commences:


The Inaugural

When in the most patriotic town of Bristol, Rhode Island, home of the oldest continuously celebrated Independence Day festivities in the U.S., on June 28, 2020, we find these truths to be self-evident: that all attendees of 13 Colonies Brewers Festival shall be met with plentiful samples of American craft beer exclusively from breweries representative of the Original Thirteen Colonies, fine foods, splendid company and joyous celebration.

We, therefore, invite you to historic Mount Hope Farm, Bristol, RI: Sunday, June 28, 2020, 12:30 – 4:30 p.m. All beverage samples included with admission; great food shall be available and a ceremonial firing of 13 cannons shall conclude the event. Proceeds shall benefit the New England Chapter of the Paralyzed Veterans of America, for there is nothing more patriotic than to give back to the community.

It is in you, we trust, to celebrate Independence on Tap.
