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 and quickly upgraded to a 3.5 bbl system by July of 2017.

In 2020 we are preparing to move out of the Portsmouth Industrial Park and over to our farm at 54 Bristol Ferry Road. This former nursery property will provide an amazing home for Ragged Island and will allow us to offer farm to table beer by growing hops and other ingredients on-site. We are thrilled to be able to preserve this beautiful 37 acre piece of farmland on Aquidneck Island from development.

The Taproom

Our taproom at 200 Highpoint Ave. is currently open for 50% capacity and takeout. We are brewing and canning a rotating selection of beer for cans and growler fills!
