PAWTUCKET — The fourth annual Rhode Island Brew Fest on Saturday not only brought more than 50 breweries to the Pawtucket Armory, it united brewers and their customers, allowing people to try new beers while meeting the people behind the kegs and casks to hear their stories and put a face to the beer.

The two, sold-out sessions at the Armory on Exchange Street brought 1,200 people together to sample more than 200 beers from nearly 60 breweries, including 14 alone from the Ocean State.

Brian Hodge, director of communications with Gray Matter Marketing said that the festival was “a great day to showcase all of the fine things that are happening in Rhode Island.”

“It’s a small craft brewing scene but its one that’s growing and one that I think is doing exciting things, so to be able to showcase that to 1,200 people on a Saturday in Pawtucket is a cool thing,” Hodge said.
