Proclamation Ale Company, aka PROC, was founded by Dave Witham in early 2014, with one purpose: to provide delicious and exciting beer to a local market that was clamoring for something besides an amber ale. This original dream started with a nano system in West Kingston, RI, but after many small expansions, we outgrew that space. We took a 30 minute trek north to Warwick, RI and in December of 2017, we opened the doors to our new, larger brewery.
In this new location, Dave and the Proc team continued pushing the envelope, testing and developing new beer styles and techniques, and of course, still creating delicious beers. Many thousands of pounds of hops and adjuncts from our 2014 beginnings, our goals and philosophies have broadened; and while brewing, serving and selling creative and delicious beer is still our purpose, we also want to provide an exciting, fun, and creative space for the community to enjoy together. Unfortunately, Dave passed away in December 2020, but his vision and legacy are now being kept alive by his wife, Lori and our incredible staff (aka our Procfam!)
Our brewery is highlighted by a 2,000 square foot barrel aging and wood cellar for sour and mixed fermentation ales, a 3,000 square foot tasting room and retail area with custom art installations and a small retro video arcade, and an outdoor patio area.
Come on over, grab a beer, and say Hi! Cheers!
