Newport RI Best Small City in US - Brick Alley Pub Newport RI

Newport RI Voted a “Best Small City in US” By Conde Nast

Newport, Rhode Island: Small But Mighty

In a recent Conde Nast Traveler survey, our own Newport, Rhode Island was voted as one of the “Best Small Cities in the US.”

Pair incredible attractions like the beautiful views afforded when walking along the Cliff Walk, or a glimpse into the past on a tour of Newport’s Mansions, with great food and drink and you have yourself a little slice of paradise 🙂

While this is nothing new to those of us lucky enough to live nearby, it is still great to see our home recognized on such a large stage.

When planning your next trip to Newport – whether you are just walking down the street or driving over the bridge – be sure to stop in and say “hi.” We have a full lineup of Fall cocktails (the Apple Cider Sangria is particularly tasty) and tasty dishes both downstairs at Brick Alley as well as at PLUMBY’S, our upstairs burger bar.

Dogfish Head Sea Quench Ale PLUMBYS Kickoff

Dogfish Head SeaQuench Ale Kickoff at PLUMBY’S!

We are excited to welcome the mad-scientist of beer Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head to PLUMBY’S at 7pm on June 21 for the summer launch of SeaQuench Ale!

What Men’s Health has claimed “…may be the world’s most thirst-slaying beer,” the SeaQuench Ale is Dogfish Head’s session sour quencher made with lime peel, black lime and sea salt.

From the Dogfish description, SeaQuench Ale is:

…a citrusy-tart union of three German styles of beer blissfully brewed into one. We begin by brewing a straightforward Kolsch with lots of wheat and Munich Malt, then we brew a salty Gose with black limes, coriander and our sea salt. We follow it all up with a citrusy-tart Berlinerweiss made with lime juice and lime peel. All three beers are then blended together in the fermentation tank to create this German hybrid.

So mark your calendars for June 21 and come join us at PLUMBY’S for the big night!

Newport Pizza Co -On-site Wood Fired Catering

Newport Pizza Co – Our On-Site Mobile Catering Service

Newport Pizza Co. :  On-Site Wood Fired Catering

We are excited to announce the launch of Newport Pizza Co., our on-site wood fired catering service! Equipped with two mobile wood burning ovens, Newport Pizza Co. brings the party to you.

When planning a party, we can help you to put together a menu that fits your event. Our standard packages offer a range of selections from fresh salads, crispy chicken wings and thin-crust pizzas to a la carte additions like Ahi Tuna Sliders and Sausage, Onion & Pepper Sandwiches.

How Our On-Site Catering Works

When you work with us to host your special event, we take care of it all. From providing plates and utensils, napkins, sauces and food (of course), we can work with hosts to supply most everything you need.

On the day of the event, we arrive at the location between ninety to one hundred and twenty minutes before service time. While this gives us plenty of time to set up, this time is more importantly allocated to getting our wood-fired ovens hot and ready for cooking.

During this initial burn we get our ovens up to around 700 degrees. By letting them burn at this temp for at least an hour, we allow the stones inside the ovens to get wicked hot, which helps when it comes time to cook.

When it comes time to cook, we like to bring – and then keep – our ovens at a cooking temperature of ~650 degrees. This allows us to get our pizzas in and out of the oven within 2-3 minutes, keeping the pizza buffet stocked with fresh, hot pies 🙂

650 degrees is also great for making sure our chicken wings come out nice and crispy (which pairs perfectly with a cool side of blue cheese).

Great for Catering Special Events

Our catering packages are perfect for any occasion as evidenced by our track record. We have catered everything from backyard high school graduation parties to rehearsal dinners on a farm to full blown wedding dinners to unique corporate events.

We have provided on-site catering for:

  • High School Graduation Parties

  • Anniversary Parties
  • Rehearsal Dinners
  • Wedding Dinners
  • Client Appreciation Events
