How many people are allowed per table?

Every table has a maximum of 8 guests, including children and babies.

What are the section options?

We have two options:

Beer Garden Tent:
Strictly 21+. No pets or babies. Table and chairs provided.

Lawn Section:
Outdoor, open air tables that allow for children and pets (on leash at all times). Table provided. We encourage you to bring chairs/blankets to make sure you are comfortable.

May I bring my children?

Children as most welcome in the Lawn sections only as long as they are kept under constant supervision within their designated lawn section. Children are not allowed to explore the farm independently.

May I bring my dog?

Yep! We are dog friendly as long as the dog is well behaved and on leash at all times. Dog owners are required to pick up after their dogs.

Besides beer, what can I purchase at the Farm?

McGrath Clambakes and Catering are offering wine and soft drinks as well as Ragged Island beers. They will also offer occasional food delivery service and a Clambake event at some point in the future.

We are not allowed to sell “beer to go” at the Beer Garden. Per State Law, takeout Ragged Island beer must be purchased from our Taproom.

May I explore the farm?

Unfortunately, not at this time. Due to the ongoing construction, and the safety of our customers, the farm will have limited areas for outdoor socializing this spring and summer. Once the construction is completed w will open more of the farm for exploration.

May I bring my own food?

Yes, we encourage you to bring your own food or order from a local business!

I placed an online order, where do I pick it up?

At our taproom at 200 High Point Ave #B6, Portsmouth RI. This location will be open until June.

Can I rent this space for private parties?

We are not booking any private events at this time. We are only open as the beer garden for the general public at this time. We will begin booking events for 2022 later this year as construction concludes.

Can I use my Ragged Island gift certificate at the Farm?

No. The beer garden operates as a special event using the Liquor License held by McGrath Clambakes and Catering. They are the company serving Ragged Island’s products on the farm and they cannot accept Ragged gift cards. All gift cards for Ragged Island will be honored at the Taproom until we have officially moved our brewing operations to the farm.
