Narragansett Brings Back ‘Fest’ Marzen

Hallo Nachbar! Narragansett Beer today announces the return of Fest, a traditional Märzen Lager, just in time for the start of Oktoberfest. After a three-year hiatus that was full of endless demand to bring Fest back, ‘Gansett is resurrecting the award-winning beer that’s fit for King Gambrinus himself.

Now brewed at Narragansett Brewery at The Guild in Pawtucket, Fest is inspired by ‘Gansett’s authentic German heritage. Founded by a group of six German immigrants in 1890, Narragansett’s original Cranston, R.I. brewery was once home to legendary Oktoberfest parties and a towering statue of King Gambrinus, the traditional European cultural icon of beer and revelry.

The 5.5% ABV and 22 IBU amber lager is brewed with Germany’s highest quality hops and malts including Munich malts from Weyermann and Tettnang hops. Together they create a balanced brew with notes of bread and toasted malt to start, followed by a crisp, subtly spiced hop finish.

Narragansett Fest is available in six packs of 12-ounce cans for $8.99-9.99 SRP and on tap at bars and restaurants. It will be distributed throughout Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and select markets in New York and New Jersey. Fest will be available for the remainder of September and October.
