NARRAGANSETT BEER RELEASES IMPERIAL BLACK STEAM

By July 18, 2013Top News, New Products

Narragansett Beer announces the release of its all-new Imperial Black Steam, a unique 100 percent American-style lager, as the third installment of the brewer’s Private Stock series of limited-editionBlack Steam craft offerings. The new small-batch brew is a California Common, or Steam Beer, an underdeveloped style that originated in mid-19th century California.

Brewed under the supervision of award-winning Brewmaster Sean Larkin, Narragansett’s Imperial Black Steam delivers a chocolaty raisin and plum flavor balanced with subtle hints of black currant and spice from the Northern Brewers hops. The unfiltered American heritage-style beer was brewed with Choice malts and San Francisco lager yeast at a warmer temperature than most traditional lagers – the process that gives Common beers their signature flavor and assertive hop bitterness.

Narragansett Imperial Black Steam, priced at $5.99, is available in 22-ounce bomber bottles throughout Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and select Northern New England markets. The beer is nine percent Alcohol By Volume and 30 IBUs (International Bitterness Units).
