Gansett Tap Invasion At Stoddard’s In Boston!

You got that right! It’s American Craft Beer Week and to celebrate we’re taking over the taps at Stoddard’s Fine Food & Ale in Boston tonight from 5pm to closing at 2am. That’s plenty of time so don’t miss the best invasion since the British one. Yes that was a Beatles reference. Here’s line-up for tonight!

Narragansett Bock: 6.5% Alcohol by Volume and 32 IBUs. This year’s Bock is a Helles Bock! A traditional Bavarian helles lager beer brewed to bock strength, therefore still as strong as traditional bock, but lighter in color and with more hop presence. Brewed with Light and Dark Munich malts, Pilsner Malt, and Malted Wheat. It is hopped with Northern Brewers and Hallertau hops. Northern Brewers is a clean …bittering hop and Hallertau is a classic German aroma hop associated with Bavarian style lager beers. Winner of the Silver Medal in the 2011 World Beer Championship

Narragansett Summer Ale: 4.2% Alcohol by Volume and 24 IBUs. This year, we’re brewing a summer seasonal for the first time! Our Summer Ale is an easy-drinking, session Pale Ale that pays homage to ‘Gansett’s original Pale Ale. Available on tap and in 16oz cans from May – August, the Summer Ale is too good to miss!

Narragansett Lager: 5.0% Alcohol by Volume and 12 IBUs. A classic American lager and the workhorse of the Gansett stable. Available all year long in bottle, can and on tap! We brew our lager with six row malt, seedless hops, corn from Iowa, our lager strain (the same one the brewery has depended on since just after Prohibition), and the purest water from Lakes Ontario and Hemlock.

Narragansett Light cans: 3.8% Alcohol by Volume and 10 IBUs.Gansett Light is an instant classic that truly delivers on both flavor and refreshment. Available all year long in bottle, can and on tap! This lighter version of the original lager is brewed with six row malt, seedless hops, our proprietary lager strain, and the purest water around. Winner of the bronze medal at the 2010 World Beer Championship.
