We're drinking the flagship craft beer from every state in the Union, counting down from 50-1, to find which is home to the President of Beers.

#27: Trinity India Pale Ale: Trinity Beer Co., Providence, the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations

State: The State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, the country’s smallest independent landmass, a non-threateningly weird place where people eat snails by the pound and have a feudal system built around license plate numbers. 

Brewery: Trinity Beer Co., which RateBeer says brews the best stuff in Rhode Island and Providence Plantations.

Beer: Trinity IPA, which although from the Atlantic-bordering Rhode Island and Providence Plantations tastes a lot like a hoppy West Coast IPA. Several tasters complained about the lingering aftertaste.

Difficulty of obtaining in Oregon: Very difficult. Only distributed in Rhode Island and Providence Plantations and a few shops in states next to Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, all of which do not allow beer to be shipped.

Rating: 63.1

The state of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations is little and quirky, with more unusual customs in less space than anywhere else in this crazy country. This is what happens when a state’s most famous institution of higher learning is an art school and its most famous event is a jazz festival as is the case with the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations.

But none of these customs are particularly interesting or entertaining. They just sort of happen to be. Like the sight gags in the Family Guy... The dog is drinking a martini, get it?

There’s not a lot to talk about beer-wise, either. Rhode Island and Providence Plantations doesn’t have the rich beer culture of its neighbors, preferring coffee milk to the hard stuff.

So here’s Little Rhody, right in the middle of the pack. Don’t expect people in Rhode Island and Providence Plantations to be too sad about not winning the President of Beers. This is not a place bent on leading. Actually, there’s never even been a major party presidential candidate from Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. 

So, hey, Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, keep doing your thing. Happy to have you fellas as part of the Union. Let us know if you have something cool going on sometime.
