Providence, RI (Providence Journal) –

Bill Nangle was finishing up his last semester at the University of Rhode Island and decided he wanted to start his own business. A home brewer and a craft beer enthusiast, he decided to start a brewery tour company and buying a bus was his starting point.

Now, the Rhode Island Brew Bus is set to run its first all-inclusive brewery tour on Friday.

The first tour is called “The Border Jumper” and it starts at Grey Sail Brewing, in Westerly. Then it heads to Cottrell Brewing and Beer’d Brewing in Connecticut before ending at The Malted Barley pub in Westerly.

Costs vary depending on the tour, with prices for single tickets ranging from $67 to $77. Tickets are available for purchase at; private tour costs will vary. Learn more and check out ticket giveaways on the Brew Bus Facebook page.

Tickets include tours and tastings at each stop, water and snacks on the bus, games and giveaways, craft beer education, food offerings and more for those 21 and older.

“The Rhode Island Brew Bus is a way to share my love for beer with everyone around me,” Nangle wrote on his website.
