The funds for the donation were raised at the first ever East Bay Beer Festival, held on June 15th and sponsored by Brickyard Wine & Spirits.

The festival, held in Warren, hosted 320 visitors and featured exclusively Rhode Island breweries. Nine breweries and two brew pubs were in attendance including Narragansett brewing, Newport Storm Brewery and Ravenous Brewing.

Keeping the priority local, TAP-IN (Touch A Person In Need) and the Stephen Hopkins Center were chosen to be supported by the festival because of their work Rhode Island communities. In Barrington, headquarters for Brickyard Wine & Spirits, TAP-IN is considered a “pillar of the community."

TAP-IN serves the Barrington, East Providence, Warren and Bristol areas, acting as a food pantry and donation center for children’s toys and clothing.
