Narragansett Brewing Company has teamed up with Bananagrams for its newest beer, Hi-Neighbor! Have a Hefeweizen! “Rhode Island holds a special place in our hearts as the game was invented at our house in Narragansett, and my father, Abe, loved to have fun and lived to get a laugh from whoever was around,” said Rena Nathanson, President, Bananagrams, Inc. “We can’t think of a better way to celebrate our tenth Bananaversary and a decade of laughter, wordplay and silliness than sharing a toast with our neighbors at ‘Gansett, another Rhode Island classic.”
The beer is brewed with 40% wheat malt and left unfiltered to give the yeast notes of banana and clove. The American craft hop, El Dorado, gives a slight orange aroma. This mash-up is the fourth in the series, joining Del’s Shandy, Autocrat Coffee Milk Stout and Allie’s Double Chocolate Porter.
