Narragansett’s new seasonal
Narragansett has announced the release of its new spring seasonal, the Bock.
You won’t miss this beer on the shelf – it’s available in 16 ounce cans that also happen to be bright green.
I’m looking forward to trying this beer – a good bock can be fantastic.
Narragansett’s last beer, the porter, was a good, easy drinking beer, so I’m hoping the new Bock is like that, too.
