'Gansett Releasing Imperial Bohemian Pilsner


Brewer Announces Second Installment of Limited-Edition “Private Stock” Craft Brews

February 28, 2013; Providence, RI – Today, the Famous Narragansett Beer announces the release of its all-new Imperial Bohemian Pilsner, the second installment of the brewer’s Private Stock series of limited-edition craft offerings.

Narragansett’s Imperial Bohemian Pilsner was brewed under the supervision of award-winning Brewmaster Sean Larkin. The first unfiltered offering from Narragansett, the pilsner offers slight bitterness in the front followed by a full-bodied malt flavor complimented by spicy and fruity earth-toned noble hops. The pilsner is made using Pale malt, Pilsner malt, Wheat malt and Cara Blonde malt from Belgium. At 35 IBUs (International Bitterness Units) it is bittered with Northern Brewer hops and 1687_GANS_Imperial_mechHallerteau hops and also double dry hopped with the Hallerteau.

The Imperial Bohemian Pilsner is a nod to Narragansett’s German heritage and the brand’s exploration of the lager beer style. While many craft breweries today focus on ales, ‘Gansett has seen greatest success and consumer interest in response to its lager offerings. Along with the company’s Marzen-style Fest, Helles Bock spring seasonal and flagship Lager, the Imperial Bohemian Pilsner is a further journey into the lager beer style.

The Narragansett Imperial Bohemian Pilsner is the company’s second offering in the Private Stock series, as the company continues to expand its acclaimed craft selections.  In December 2012, Narragansett introduced a limited-edition Imperial IPA, offering ‘Gansett fans a bigger-bodied brew, while also celebrating the company’s 122nd anniversary.

Narragansett Imperial Bohemian Pilsner, priced between $5.99-6.99, is available in 22-ounce bomber bottles throughout Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, North Carolina, New York City, and the District of Columbia. Narragansett Bohemian Imperial Pilsner is 8.6 percent Alcohol By Volume.
