Big Mamie Indestructible Pale Ale Release Party

Join us at The Cove in Fall River, MA on Veterans Day (11/11) to celebrate our nation’s veterans and the release of our latest brew, Big Mamie Indestructible American Pale Ale!

The release commemorates the 50th anniversary of maritime museum Battleship Cove and our own efforts to save the impenetrable warship many years ago. Recognized in American history for firing both the first and last U.S. Navy sixteen inch shells during World War II, the USS Massachusetts, otherwise known as “Big Mamie,” served her country proudly for many years. However, despite her storied history, Big Mamie was on her way to the scrap yard to be stripped of her parts by 1964. With her heroic past and New England pride in mind, Narragansett Beer spearheaded a fundraising movement with the local Massachusetts community to save the beloved ship from destruction. Thanks in part to ‘Gansett’s charitable efforts, in 1965 Big Mamie made a victorious return through Narragansett Bay to the Fall River, Massachusetts waterfront where a half million adoring fans lined the shores to welcome her home. The vessel is still docked there today as the crown jewel of America’s Fleet Museum at Battleship Cove.

So come down and celebrate one of our nation’s treasures and all the brave Americans that served with her!
