Coastal Extreme Brewing Company, the makers of Newport Storm Beer and Thomas Tew Rum, held a release party for Sea Fog American Whiskey and Rhode Sodah on July 20 at their distillery in Newport. Guests sampled the new products, as well as talked with co-founders Brent Ryan and Derek Luke. Sea Fog American Whiskey is aged seven years in ex-bourbon barrels and made from pale and peated malts. The whiskey features peat, smoke, vanilla, caramel and oak. Rhode Sodah is “golden colored ale with juicy hop flavor and a touch of bitterness.” El Dorado, citra and equinox hops give the beer aromas of orange, tangerine and mango. The Canada Pale and honey malt gives the brew a crisp and clean finish.
