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

        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.

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

          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.
