Beer Spotlight: Narragansett Del’s Shandy

 

 

Narragansett Brewing Co. introduced the second release in its “Hi Neighbor Mash-Up” series: Narragansett Del’s Shandy. The shandy mixes Narragansett’s lager and Del’s tart lemon concentrate, creating a 5 percent alcohol by volume brew for the warm summer months. Narragansett Del’s Shandy currently is available throughout Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut and New York and is expected to remain at retail into August.

 

 

About the Company
While history tells us that Narragansett Lager is the beer that made ‘Gansett famous, the brewery also began producing a wide variety of ales when it opened in the late 1800’s. Pale Ale, Select Stock Ale, and Banquet Ale were all staples in the Narragansett Beer line-up long before Curt Gowdy first popularized the phrase “Hi neighbor, have a ‘Gansett!” during Red Sox broadcasts. In fact, the old brewery had an entire four-story building dedicated to the “Ale Department” throughout most of the 20th century, and the Narragansett Ales outsold the Lager until the 1940’s. It has been documented that American tastes changed from darker and more bitter ales to lighter and easier drinking lagers after Prohibition for two reasons. First, waves of immigrants from lager-drinking Central and Eastern European countries had come to America during the early 1900’s, and second, thousands of American GI’s returned home from Europe with years of lager drinking experiences after World War I and World War II. Yet while it was Narragansett’s award-winning lager that helped propel the brand to the status of the #1 beer in New England by the late 1940’s, the ales continued to be a valuable part of the ‘Gansett portfolio well into the 1970’s.
