PAWTUCKET â€“ There are nine craft breweries in Rhode Island, and three of them are in Pawtucket, which just might make the city the craft brewery capital of Rhode Island, says Jason Lourenco, co-owner of the cityâ€™s third micro brewery â€“ Brewery 401 â€“ which opened on May 1.
â€śItâ€™s purely coincidental that we landed here in Pawtucket, and we only realized later that it was where Bucket Brewery Co. used to be before they expanded,â€ť says Lourenco, who along with co-owner and Brewmaster Nicole Pelletier opened Brewery 401 in the Lorraine Mills building on Mineral Spring Avenue.
Bucket Brewery, Foolproof Brewing Co. - and now Brewery 401 â€“ all make Pawtucket their home base of operations.
