Meet the Little Sister

The success of Jen and Alan Brinton’s Grey Sail Brewing Co. really took off with the introduction of their popular  Captain’s Daughter  double IPA a few years ago. Last week, the Westerly brewery introduced the “sequel” --  Little Sister , a Session IPA, which Grey Sail’s distributor reports is flying off the shelves at local stores.
While you may have to look a little harder to find the new brew over the coming weekend, we have some good news – it will definitely be available at the Providence debut of Little Sister this Friday, October 4 th , from 6 – 9 pm at the Malted Barley, 334 Westminster St., two doors down from our new office. Details here.
I hope you will be able to join the New Harbor team on Friday - and taste what all the excitement is about!

You Know Captain’s Daughter. Now Meet Her Little Sister.

Grey Sail Brewing welcomed a new addition to its family of local craft beers last week with the arrival of Little Sister, a Session IPA loaded with Mosaic and Citra hops. Having grown up in the shadow of her older sister, Grey Sail’s highly regarded Captain’s Daughter, it’s now the Little Sister’s time to shine.  
At the Little Sister launch party, Grey Sail owners Jennifer and Alan Brinton made sure that everyone felt like a part of the family at their Westerly Taproom (right) last Friday. “We are as committed to brewing quality, local beer today as we were when we started this journey,” said Jennifer Brinton. “Our amazing team has topped themselves with Little Sister. We know you will love it as much as we do. Cheers!”
Grey Sail, long a dream of Jen and Alan’s, has come long way since launching its first brew, FlagShip Ale, in 2011. In those days, the company was a two-person operation working in Grey Sail’s Canal Street facility, an old macaroni factory. Since then, their team has grown to 13 employees while the brewery has expanded to include a taproom with an outdoor patio and delicious grilled pizza oven. A new distillery is also under construction. 
Weren’t able to make it to Westerly? Grey Sail is hosting events at bars and liquor stores across the region to celebrate the arrival of Little Sister. Find an event near you here .

At Quonset, Success Is a Team Sport
It is no secret that the Quonset Business Park has long been a driver of economic growth in Rhode Island. A recent study from Bryant University found that the Park generates $4 billion in annual economic output, or 7% of the state’s gross domestic product. The park also creates $1.28 billion in annual household income for families and $128.8 million in annual tax revenue. In the most recent edition of New England Real Estate Journal Steven King, Managing Director at Quonset (right, with TV host Joe Paolino), attributes this success to a statewide team effort spanning a generation.
The combined efforts of Gov. Gina Raimondo and her predecessors, Commerce Secretary Stefan Pryor, the General Assembly, the state’s Congressional Delegation, QDC leadership and the Town of North Kingstown have all played vital roles in the Quonset success story, King said. By working with partners in government, business and the community, Quonset has attracted over $1 billion in private investment and 5,300 new jobs at the park since 2005. 
“The growth of the Business Park has been a generational endeavor, and the impressive figures from the Bryant report reflect years of this hard work and collaboration,.” King added.
