Wicked Tasty Brews

About Us

Brewery 401 was founded by two life-long Rhode Islanders.

Brew Master Nichole Pelletier was born and raised in Narragansett. Nichole's background is rich in culinary knowledge & experience as she and her family have worked as chefs in various restaurants throughout Rhode Island for decades. After obtaining her bachelor's degree from John Jay College in New York City, Nichole returned home to Rhode Island to now direct all of the complex aspects of brewing at Brewery 401. 

As president of Brewery 401, Jason Lourenco brings over seven years of successful small business leadership to the organization. Jason graduated from Rhode Island College with a bachelor's degree before obtaining his master's degree from Roger Williams University.  Jason also served the State for over six years in the Rhode Island National Guard. Aside from assisting with brewing, Jason oversees all non-brewing aspects of Brewery 401 to include distribution, advertisment, regulatory adherence, record-keeping, maintenance, etc.
