Narragansett Releases Fourth Brew of Lovecraft Series

i am providence aleNarragansett Beer announced the release of I Am Providence Imperial Red Ale, the fourth installment in the Lovecraft beer series, which pays tribute to Providence’s famed horror author, H.P. Lovecraft. The name of the beer stems from H.P Lovecraft’s love for his hometown and his famous quote “I Am Providence,” which was inscribed on his gravestone in 1977. Brewed under Narragansett’s Head Brewmaster, Sean Larkin, I Am Providence is dark red in color and is a blend of Pilsen, CaraRed and Vienna malts, with the flavors of biscuits and caramel. Warrior and Citra hops add tastes of pine and citrus to the brew. The Imperial Red Ale, 8% ABV and 62 IBUs, is available in a 6-pack of 16-ounce tallboy cans and is distributed where Narraganset products are sold. Designed by local Providence artist Gunsho, the can depicts a representation of Lovecraft’s “High Priest of the Great Old Ones,” the Cthulhu, “wrapping his tentacles around the Rhode Island State House and uprooting the iconic landmark of Lovecraft’s beloved hometown.”
