Whalers Brewing Co. was founded in 2012. We are a growing brewery based out of Wakefield, Rhode Island. Our beers are bold and flavorful yet unpretentious. We currently distribute our beers to bars and restaurants throughout the state. We also have 7,000 sq. ft., BYOF, dog friendly taproom that is open to the public for tours and tastings 5 days a week. Josh Dunlap and Wes Staschke are our two owners/head brewers. Josh is a former marine and local fisherman. Wes was an engineer in a previous life.
We are two time winners of the People's Choice Award at R.I.'s Great International Beer Festival. We also won Yankee Magazine's "Best No-Frills Brewery" in 2015. Also in 2015, The Southern Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce gave us their "Hidden Gem" award.
We have 3 Flagship Ales:
East Coast IPA: A dark amber IPA that delivers an upfront floral aroma with a smooth malt body and complex hop finish.
Rise: An American Pale Ale whose bright citrus aroma leads to a pleasantly smooth body with a subtle hop spice that lingers in the background.
Hazelnut Stout: A cream stout with a light hazelnut aroma, accompanied by a smooth, velvety body that leaves lingering dark chocolate and coffee notes.
Our hours are:
Wednesday: 4-9pm, Thursday: 4-10pm, Friday: 4-10pm, Saturday: 1-10pm, Sunday: 1-7pm.
We do a monthly "Yoga and Beer" event. We also have live music in the brewery every Thursday night.
