Narragansett Beer announced the release of Town Beach IPA, a new summer-fall brew that celebrates the beloved town beach of Narragansett, Rhode Island. Previously released as an Imperial IPA, Narragansett Town Beach IPA has been toned down for maximum drinkability, and is now the latest addition to ‘Gansett’s Sessionable Series. This cool, crisp beer delivers a taste as refreshing as a late summer dip in the Atlantic.
A top summer destination for vacationers when Narragansett Beer was founded in 1890, the town of Narragansett served as the ultimate summer escape for New Englanders, filled with luxury hotels and endless activities along the beloved town beach. Emblazoned with an image of a vintage beach scene, Narragansett Beer’s Town Beach IPA label is an homage to the popularity of the local town beach, which still endures today.
The easy drinking session IPA features hallertau, nugget and EKG hops and is brewed with pale, cara pils and wheat malts, delivering a well-rounded hop profile with just the right amount of bitterness. Golden amber in color, Town Beach IPA is dry-hopped with citra hops at the finish, resulting in a crisp, clean and slightly fruity beer. Brewed under the supervision of Sean Larkin, Head Brewmaster for Narragansett and owner of Revival Brewing, Town Beach IPA is 4.7% Alcohol by Volume and 55 IBU’s.
Narragansett Town Beach IPA will be available in six packs of 16-ounce tallboy cans ($8.99-$9.99 SRP) and will be distributed throughout New England, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, North Carolina, Florida, Portland, Ore. and Nashville and Chattanooga, Tenn. The timing and availability of Town Beach IPA will vary per market. The beer will be available alongside classic Narragansett Lager through mid-October.
