Wisconsin Beer in Providence, Rhode Island

Any locals have ideas about how to find Wisconsin Craft Beer in Providence? Would love any suggestions! Thanks.

  1. I actually have a couple of favorite, seasonal craft beers that are hard to find. What I do is, when I know that 'tis the season, I dial up a large beer distributor and have them drop off a case or two (depending). I know you can't do this for just a six pack, and it won't work for every label, and I have no idea if this works in every state. But where I live, it is a good way to get a particular, non-local or specialty-and-therefore-not-widely-distributed brew.

    Hope it works for you.

      God what I'd do for a Spotted Cow........

    2. Call Wisconsin Craft Beer and ask if they have a RI distributor.

      1. call yankee spirits,they well have an answer for you,very knowledgable beer staff,and super helpful.the new place by the whole foods in cranston,Grapes,has a pretty huge beer selection too...lastly,but closer to home,Campus liquors on brook in prov. has pretty knowledgable crew too,they had wisconsins "Point "once when i stopped by,sure it cost me 10$ a sixer,but well worth every penny in memories......

          The place by Whole Foods on Sockanosset Cross Road in Cranston is called Wines & More. It has the widest selection of craft beers I've found anywhere in RI.

        2. If there is a distributor in RI who carries it, Nikki's on Smithfield Ave will get it for you.
