The famous Narragansett Beer introduces, for the first time in its 120-year history, the seasonal release of a summer craft brew: Narragansett Summer Ale. Distributed throughout New England, Southern New York, and Philadelphia at leading package stores, bars and restaurants, Summer Ale will be available on draught and in ‘Gansett’s signature 16oz. Tallboy cans which feature iconic imagery of the famous Narragansett Towers.

This easy-drinking light session ale features two row pale malt and citra hops, a very popular, newer variety of hops with very evident aromas of citrus and passion fruit that complement the pale malt perfectly. Golden blonde in color, its pour produces a generous white head and balanced carbonation. A supremely drinkable summer craft brew, the malt flavor is smooth and subtle, balanced out by a crisp hop bitterness, perfect for the beach, boat or ballgame. Summer Ale is 4.2% Alcohol by Volume and 24 IBUs.

“‘Gansett Summer” is the first ale to be produced by Narragansett Beer since the 1970s. Known best for its signature Lager, a wide variety of ales were once available, beginning in the late 1800s. The original brewery devoted an entire four-story building to the “Ale Department,” and staples like the Pale Ale, Select Stock Ale, and Banquet Ale outsold Lager until the 1940s when American tastes changed as a result of thousands of GIs returning home from Lager-drinking European countries during World War 1 & II, and a wave of Lager-drinking immigrants.
