PAWTUCKET, R.I. — With warm weather and sunny beach days upon us, Narragansett Beer is here to remind you what the perfect summer day looks like. A cooler full of ‘Gansett and your toes in the sand are key, but this year we’re sharing our pro tips to having a true Rhody summer with The ‘Gansett Guide to Summer, covering everything from scoping the best spot on the beach to shucking oysters like a pro.
To start, you’ll need a proper beach cooler packed with our full line up of summer suds. This year, we’ve got something for everyone, from a light, refreshing Heritage Lager to a crisply hopped IPA.
Del’s Shandy – 4.7% ABV, 14 IBUs
Combining two Rhode Island favorites, Del’s Shandy is the ultimate summertime refresher. Del’s provides an effervescent, citrus blast from the tart all natural lemon juice concentrate of the iconic Del’s Lemonade backed by just enough sweet malt to keep it from becoming too sour. Just the drink you’re looking to sip on for those hot days when you call in “sick” to the office.
$9.99-10.99 SRP per six-pack of 16 oz. cans and $13.99-$15.99 SRP per 12-pack of 12 oz. cans
Town Beach IPA – 4.7% ABV, 55 IBUs
This brew is a supremely drinkable IPA that packs a light citrus kick, so you can throw a few back throughout the day. Blended with Two-Row, Carapils, Caramel 20 and White Wheat malts, and Citra hops, they give it a slight fruitiness before it’s dry-hopped again with Citra hops at the finish to deliver the aromas of passion fruit and grapefruit.
$9.99-10.99 SRP per six-pack of 16 oz. cans
Summertime Citra Ale – 4.2% ABV, 24 IBU
Brewed in Rhode Island for the first time ever at Narragansett Brewery at The Guild, Summertime Citra Ale has a smooth Pale malt flavor balanced out perfectly by the crisp Citra hop bitterness. This light, thirst-quenching Blonde Ale is great for the beach, boat, backyard patio or baseball game.
$8.99-9.99 SRP per six-pack of 12 oz. cans and $13.99-$15.99 SRP per 12-pack of 12 oz. cans (Limited availability in SE New England)
Narragansett Lager “Clam Can” – 5% ABV, 12 IBUs
Since 1890, ‘Gansett’s Lager has been a year-round staple, but every summer it receives a makeover when the annual “clam cans” hit shelves. As the self-proclaimed Official Beer of the Clam, this can showcases our signature recipe for a traditional New England clam bake, so the perfect summer meal is just a lager away.
$5.99-6.99 SRP per six-pack of 16 oz. cans
America’s Cup Bermuda Style Pilsner – 5% ABV, 25 IBUs
Each year, the world’s best sailors race for the oldest trophy in International Sports—America’s Cup. This easy-drinking Pilsner honors the historic sailing tradition and Rhode Island’s longstanding ties with the iconic race. It’s a craft Pilsner brewed with Two Row and Carapils malts and German Hallertau hops for refreshment like you’d get on a Caribbean beach from a green bottle beer. This is the perfect brew for a relaxing day on the water.
$6.99 SRP per four-pack of 16 oz. cans
Clam Shack Summer Variety Pack
Can’t decide which beer you like best? ‘Gansett has four summer beers (Del’s Shandy, Summertime Citra Ale, Lager, Town Beach IPA) packaged up in one variety pack, making it as easy as ever to crack open a Rhody summer.
$13.99-15.99 SRP per 12-pack of 12 oz. cans
