Narragansett Beer announced the release of its award-winning seasonal favorite, Narragansett Fest, just in time for crisp fall evenings. While it’s no surprise that this excellent brewery has a unique seasonal offering, what is surprising is that the brew is offered on draft and in the signature 16-ounce Tallboy cans for purchase in Nashville for the first time, due to Narragansett’s expansion into the market this past summer.
‘Gansett Fest is a traditional amber-brown German Oktoberfest style beer, which 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 and 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 the North American 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 memories 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.
