When In New England, It’s Narragansett Beer [VIDEO]
If you’ve ever vacationed in New England or been to a Boston Red Sox game at Fenway Park, you may be familiar with one of the signature beers of the region….Narragansett Beer. Here’s the connection to New York, some of Narragansett beers are contract brewed in Rochester!
Here’s more about Narragansett Lager Beer, according to narragansett.com:
“Narragansett’s family of classic American lagers and ales are brewed by guys who take pride in the beers they make, and joy in the beers they drink. The lager and light beers are brewed in Rochester, NY at a brewery that’s been producing award-winning beers for more than 125 years.
Roll out the Barrel: 5.0% Alcohol by Volume and 12 IBUs. A classic American lager and the workhorse of the Gansett stable.
Quality Supreme: We brew our lager with six row malt, secret blend of Pacific Northwest 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.
The History: It was the first beer brewed by “The Original Six” back in 1890, the bestselling beer in New England from the 1930s to the 1970s, and the official beer of the Boston Red Sox from 1944-1975.”
