Roll out the Barrel
5% Alcohol by Volume and 28 IBUs. ‘Gansett Cream is our first year-round craft style and is a perfect example of a Pre-Prohibition cream ale — only slightly hoppier. Available on tap and in 16oz cans, ‘Gansett Cream delivers that refreshing straight from the barrel taste of days gone by.
‘Gansett Cream is made with quality ingredients like 2-row pale, Munich, Vienna, and Cara-malt for a creamy head! We used Columbus hops for bittering and a touch of Willamette hops for a slight hop aroma. Bright gold in color and brilliant in clarity, this session ale delivers an extra pop of hop bitterness found only in cream ales of the early 1900′s. The draft is brewed in small batches at Trinity Brew House in Providence and Cottrell Brewery in Pawcatuck, CT, and the tall boy cans are brewed at North American Brewery in Rochester, NY. We anticipate needing a large shelf for the awards this baby will rake in.
Taste & Enjoy
This is the perfect lawn-mower beer. Our cream ale was brewed with an ale yeast and lagered at 38 degrees for a clean, crisp finish. This beer is clean, flavorful, light, and crisp, making it a real thirst quencher. It’s an ode to beers of a forgotten age, when things were just a bit slower…and some would say a little bit better. You’ll really enjoy the supreme drinkability of this beer, whether you’re mowing the lawn or mowing down duckpins at the local lanes.
‘Gansett Cream was a staple of the Narragansett Brewery’s portfolio throughout the 1960′s and 1970′s. In the white can with the green trim, it was a refreshing alternative to the more widely heralded ‘Gansett Lager and Porter throughout New England. The earlier Narragansett Cream Ale was lighter and had much less hop character than our current cream ale, as was the taste at the time. Still, it was a popular seller for ‘Gansett and that white can was just as fitting a reward at the end of a hard day of yard work as the royal blue can is today.
