Have a Gansett, Neighbor

Blog friend and real-life church friend Panorama of the Mountains has a review of the revived Narragansett beer. I grew up about 2 miles from the old Narragansett Brewery in Cranston, Rhode Island. The old Gansett wasn't, shall we say, the champagne of beers, but it seems like the revival might have a little more potential. The Narragansett website has a good history of how, exactly, the original Narragansett went downhill financially in the mid-70s. Perhaps I'll order a keg for my Rhode Island Independence Day party at the beginning of next month.

Miller High Life claims to be the "Champagne of Beers" so that's not exactly something to aspire to.

Thanks for the shout-out.

Nothing wrong with a High Life. My favorite "blue collar" beer. Much less pretentious than drinking PBRs with the hipster set. I remember the old Narragansett bottles from my childhood in CT. Bring a bottle out to Berkeley!
