I went to Noreys last weekend for the first time with a few old friends of mine who had come to visit me from New York City. Knowing these guys have a lot of great bars where they live I wanted to take them somewhere unique and special in my area that they might enjoy and after just a little bit of online research I found Noreys.
This place had one of the coolest beer selections we had ever seen, everything from imported German, Belgium, Norwegian, and Italian beers on tap (21 in total) and over 100 rare hard to find beers by the bottle I spent some quality time looking through all of them while we all caught up and had some good laughs.
The bartender told us the list of brews is changing pretty much every week and I plan on making the trip back to Norey's soon to check out whats new!

Can I guarantee that that Norey's dominates any bar in the Tri-State area. This is hands down the best craft beer spot in the Northeast. Quality? Quantity?
This place is the nirvana of craft beer in Rhode Island.
Popping into the state and looking for a good Belgian? This is the place.

Norey's is beer heaven. It's basically a business created to help you drink the best beers in the world.
It can be a little intense. You've got a whole bunch of 9-10% ABV Belgians on draft, a few high octane Double IPAs and maybe a Barleywine on draft. These aren't beers to throw down. These are beers you're going to spend some time with and enjoy.
If this place was a car dealership, it would be selling Zondas and Koenigseggs, then occasionally boring themselves with a Ferrari or Lamborghini. I'm a craft beer fanatic and I'm amazed at all the beers that show up that I've never heard of before.
They've recently expanded the number of taps to 21 and brought in a cask kegorator, but the selection really isn't getting much softer.
If you're looking for the qualitative BEST selection of beer in Rhode Island (and probably a good distance beyond), this is your spot.

Okay, I signed up to BeerAdvocate simply so I could review Norey's. I was in Newport for a work trip last week, and was looking for a place with a good craft beer selection. A little research led me to Norey's.
It was awesome.
I sat at the bar and chatted with the bartender, Charlie (I think). We talked food and beer, and he recommended the boneless ribs and a steak. I don't remember the name of the steak, but it had Blue Cheese Maytag butter. It came with wild rice and julienned veggies. It was all so awesome. The steak was tender, cooked to perfection, and geez, everything was perfect. I can honestly think of NOTHING that I'd change about the food.
Now the beer....it was a phenomenal selection. I had a pour of Allagash Odyssey, Old Dubh (cask), and a few bottles (Cuvee Freddy and Hanssens Artisanaal Oude Gueuz). This led me to chatting with another bartender (perhaps he was a shift manager?)...named...it got fuzzy around this point, but I think it was Jeremy.
They had live music that night, but I left before it started (relax, I walked back to my hotel, I didn't drive). However, given the incoming crowd, I bet that the music was awesome as well.
The next time I'm within 50 miles of Norey's, I'll be back in.

Well, this is my go to place in Newport, RI for great craft beer. The chef is called "grumps", which ought to tell you something. Turns out he's very cool, you just have to enjoy classic movies in black and white, even if they were made in color...
Chef Grumps is a great cook and I really like Norey's food. Norey herself, the restaurant's namesake, bakes incredible desserts. Like coconut cake? Very much so... incredible desserts.
Spicy food? Norey's has you covered, with several dishes. Asian Lettuce wraps are great, the Bistro steak is always great, on and on. Not a big fan of the burger though. Funny that. Buffalo mac and cheese or lobster mac and cheese are great. He does fish well too. The menus is varied nicely and changes often, which I appreciate.
Oh yes, I forgot, the beer. Well, Chef Tyler sources the most difficult to find beers. He excels at it. He has one true draught line now, which currently has Harviestoun's Ola Dubh 12. There are perhaps a dozen beers on the board (only) but don't let that confuse you. Instead of 40 taps of mediocre, it is about ten taps of the incredible. Constantly rotating and never a bad tap line, unlike other Newport venues. Bottle selection is excellent. Looking for North Coast Grand Cru? How about Cantillion Gueze on tap? The entire Cantillon line in bottle? If you want an AB InBev product, you better be looking for Goose Island, or your in the wrong place.
I hope that helps you, and I hope to see you there.

Went to Norey's on my first day in Newport and then went back a few days later before leaving. Don't really care much for the food - what I had and saw around me was to spicy for my taste. Now the beer selection is outstanding - nice variety on tap and a very nice beer list, which is broken down by style. My main critique is not the food, but the barware. Several of my glasses were not beer clean, having several nucleation points on the walls. Nevertheless, I would definitely recommend this place and grateful that I was told about this place.

Norey's is Newport's version of craft beer heaven. Any beer enthusiast who looks at the beer menu will suddenly discover so many beers that they've heard of an always meant to try. The trick is to create a strategy to drink the beers you REALLY want to try today...and then start prioritizing for further visits. How does one rank La Fin Du Monde against Stone Brewery's Imperial Russian Stout? That's for you to decide.

Norey's is the place to come to if you want good beer! They offer an extensive list of bottled beers and there 12 taps are constantly changing. The manage to get really hard to find beers and the owner even had a keg of dogfish head world wide stout stashed away that he tapped long after you no longer could get it in RI...a real treat! They are heavy on belgians and IPAs in the bottles but have really something for everyone. The food is also great...a small eclectic menu with reasonably priced specials every day. And on Wednesdays there is live music...bonus! We love this place, the beer, the food, the people...do yourself a favor and check it out!

I Love Noreys! The bottle selection is extensive, the owner/chef/beer buying guru has one of the highest beer IQs in the region.
The taps are few, but always changing with something special.
The one thing that sets Noreys apart from most Beer Geek Meccas is the amazing local,fresh seafood and the other affordable offerings on the menu.
TRUST ME- you have to try the fresh raw oysters with your fine beer.
This a great place for everyone, this is a place where the date of the beer geek will be happy due to the high food quality and from what I hear is a good wine list(not that I'd drink the wine)
Winter is a great time to visit the sleepy oceanside community on Broadway in Newport.
The owner/chef/beer geeks name is Tyler, he loves talking shop, ask for him!
My mouth is watering just typing about it,can't wait to go back...

Norey's is definitely an unique place. Best over 100 beer list I've ever seen and some of the Best food in RI... without question. Specials are always exceptional and their beer taps are constantly introducing rare brews. The wines are perfectly stored and the restaurant comes complete with their own wine/beer expert to help the novices!
Very lively, energetic place and live music has made Norey's a real hot spot as well as a hang out. The staff are on top of their game and the Grumpy Chef is famous. A loyal fan they have made out of me....
