Our Story

Ragged Island Brewing Company was born in 2016 as an idea among good friends that had a shared passion for craft beer, the outdoors, and entrepreneurship. In March of 2017 we opened our doors as a 1 bbl brewery before quickly upgrading to a 3.5 bbl system by July of 2017.

Five years of twists and turns later, we’ve finally opened the doors at our new farm home at 54 Bristol Ferry Road in Portsmouth, Rhode Island — with 37 acres of farmland and woods to explore, our working farm has a lot to offer!

We have completely renovated the barn to be a state of the art brewing facility for our new 10 barrel brewhouse. This system is the perfect size for small batches of our fan favorite recipes with plenty of room for new and experimental brews. And we have completely remodeled our 1890s farmhouse taproom to offer a comfortable and friendly atmosphere for sampling and retail sales with multiple outdoor decks, a greenhouse, and stunning views of Narragansett Bay.

Frequently Asked Questions

Food & Beverages2022-06-07T15:09:57+00:00

We have Food Trucks as often as possible, but also always allow customers to BYOF (Bring Your Own Food). Due to licensing laws, we can not allow outside alcoholic beverages on the farm. The only alcoholic beverage that can be consumed are beers poured from our taps, which means the cans to go you will have to enjoy after you leave.


An adult must supervise children at all times. This is a working brewery and farm. Please be aware of your surroundings and respectful of our property.


We love dogs here at Ragged Island and they are welcome on the farm. We just ask that they are always on a leash and well-behaved.

Smoking Policy2022-06-07T15:13:36+00:00

No smoking is allowed at the farm.
