Narragansett Beer Welcomes Fall With a Tallboy Tasting Flight Pack and Award-Winning Seasonal Fest
First-Ever Flight Pack Delivers an At-Home Tasting Experience of Four Beloved Brews
September 26, 2012; Providence, RI – Just in time for football tailgating and crisp fall evenings, Narragansett Beer is releasing its award-winning seasonal favorite, Narragansett Fest, as part of a new Tallboy Tasting Flight pack.
The brand’s first-ever variety pack presents four of ‘Gansett’s most popular brews in their signature 16-ounce Tallboy cans. Inspired by the ever-growing popularity of craft brews and pub tasting flights, Narragansett’s new
Tasting Flight 12-pack features ‘Gansett’s popular seasonals Fest and Bock, and year-round favorites Cream Ale and Lager.
Announcement of the ‘Gansett flight pack coincides with the seasonal release of Narragansett Fest, a traditional amber-brown German Oktoberfest style beer. Marking the third year for ‘Gansett Fest since the brewer’s revival in 2005, the craft offering has received much critical acclaim, winning silver at the Beverage Tasting Institute’s 2010 World Beer Championship and receiving a gold medal at the 2011 Great International Beer & Cider Competition in Providence, R.I.
Brewed with the highest quality German malt and hops, Fest is crafted in small batches under the supervision of award-winning Brewmaster Sean Larkin at Cottrell Brewery in Pawcatuck, Conn., and the award-winning High Falls Brewery in Rochester, N.Y. Vienna, Pilsner, Light and Dark Munich malts make up the backbone of the beer, and Northern Brewer and Tettnanger hops are added to give it a crisp but subtle hop flavor. Narragansett Fest recalls many tales of the brewery’s historic Oktoberfest celebrations. The can itself is emblazoned with an image of King Gambrinus, the Patron Saint of Beer, of whom a towering statue once stood on the brewery grounds watching over the festivities.
Priced at $14.99, the Tallboy Tasting Flight pack is available for purchase at leading package stores throughout Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and New York City.
Offered as a standalone on draught and in the signature 16-ounce Tallboy cans, Narragansett Fest is available for purchase throughout all of New England, Southern New York, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Florida, and Wisconsin.
