It all started in Brooklyn, NY, when a former art school student turned-homebrewing-fanatic had the idea to merge his two greatest passions: art and beer. Since launching in 2013, Radiant Pig has created innovative, high-quality beers with colorful names and stories inspired by the art, music, and culture of New York City.  Radiant Pig’s year-round favorites include its flagship IPA “Save the Robots”, “TV Party” a New England pale ale, “Own the Night” Hazy IPA, “It Ain’t Easy” Double IPA, “No Half Steppin” Single Hop IPA, and “Junior”, a session IPA.


Our most popular beer, “Save the Robots” is an east coast IPA whose name comes from the underground after-hours club in New York, frequented by East village artists and musicians in the ’80s. Along with our other year-round brews, “TV Party” and “Own the Night.” Radiant Pig has grown into a regional favorite amongst beer nerds and novices.


As demand and distribution grew throughout the Northeast, Radiant Pig joined Newport Craft Brewing & Distilling Co. and Braven Brewing Co. located in Newport, Rhode Island. 


Adding the Radiant Pig beers to the Company’s production schedule that already includes the Braven Brewing and Newport Craft portfolios will push the Company’s production to 10,000 barrels by the end of the year and 25,000 barrels by 2022. 

“In order to continue to deliver the level of quality expected of Radiant Pig and to satisfy the ever-growing demand, it was important for me to find a partner with the same vision and commitment to quality and authenticity, and I found that in Newport Craft. Getting to know CEO Brendan O’Donnell and the Newport Craft team over the past year, we discovered that we not only shared a vision but a commitment to common values. After countless discussions with Brendan, I understood Newport Craft’s unwavering commitment to the craft brewing industry and where it sees itself on the regional and national brewing stage.  I am thrilled about the partnership and the future of Radiant Pig,”
