Gansett Fest, Lager And Light Wins Big!

It comes with great pleasure that we announce more wins for Narragansett beers. We entered the Fest, Lager and Light in the Beverage Testing Institute’s World Beer Championships this year and came out with big results. Fest brought a silver medal home  and both lager and light were awarded bronze. This is huge especially after the Gold win at GIBF and this being our 120th year. Here’s what they had to say about each beer.
