Winner of the gold medal in the Oktoberfest category at the 15th annual Great International Beer & Cider Competition in Providence, RI 2011.

Taste & Enjoy: Gansett Fest is a great example of a traditional amber-brown German Oktoberfest style beer. It is perfectly balanced with four varieties of malts and two styles of hops. This is an extremely easy drinking autumn seasonal beer, but one you will want to savor as the rich malt profile complements the crisp, but not overpowering, hop flavor perfectly.
The History: The Narragansett Brewery will always be known as the home to thousands of colorful stories over the course of its incredible history. At least a small truckload of those stories revolve around the Oktoberfest celebrations that would take place on the brewery grounds every fall. Whether it was a slightly out-of-control party on the roof, assorted parking disasters, or just plain old good times eating bratwurst and drinking Gansett Oktoberfest Beer in green velour tyrolean hats & lederhosen, the good times always rolled. And the statue of King Gambrinus, the Patron Saint of Beer, always kept a watchful eye on the festivities at the brewery. So it is fitting that his image graces the label of Gansett Fest as a tribute to both our brewing heritage and the Oktoberfest celebrations of days gone by.
