Happy National Lager Day

In December of 1890, the six original founders of the Narragansett Brewery brewed the first batch of Narragansett Lager Beer. The Lager went on to be the bestselling beer in New England from the 1930s to the 1970s, and the official beer of the Boston Red Sox from 1944-1975. What better way to celebrate National Lager Day on December 10th than with the beer that started it all. So today, we encourage you to raise a ‘Gansett with us as we salute our famous Lager! Visit your favorite pub or package store and enjoy some ‘Gansett today. Hi Neighbor, Have a ‘Gansett! Here’s more on this brew.

Roll out the Barrel: 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!

Quality Supreme: 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.

Taste & Enjoy: This beer is brewed just right for drinking—crisp and refreshing. It’s got more flavor than other premium lagers, yet it’s one of the most drinkable beers in the world. Narragansett has the highest rating of all domestic premium lagers on BeerAdvocate.com, and received the bronze medal for American Lagers at the 2008 World Beer Cup. 2010 Gold Medal winner in the lager category at the 14th annual Great International Beer & Cider Competition in Providence, RI.
