Well this weekend my friend from Ny had went to CT for me last week and got me 4 cases of Narragansett and I found out they are having their Bock Bottled now to! Well I got him to order one case and I had 3 so far and I like it so dam much I am going to have him get me a couple more cases in Late Jan when he stopes back my way. I also got an e mail from Narragansett that their Porter will soon be available in bottles at distributers in NE! Also the Narragansett Bock is contract brewed by a Brewery Called Cottrell Brewing in Pawcatuck Ct and has the Old Pop caps instead of the screw off like regualar Narragansett Has. So Gary Give this one a try it is Awesome also "Jesskidden" do you have any Info on Cottrell Brewing as when I want to know these things if anyone knows you do!

I just saw on the Web That their Beer is old Yankee Ale so if anyone has had that give me let me know what it is like.

Don't really know anything about Cottrell beyond what's on their website, which I take it you found .

Some of the other Narragansett beers (other than the Lager and Light brewed by High Falls) have been brewed by RI's Trinity Brewpub (http://www.trinitybrewhouse.com/)- I guess the draught versions of the Bock and the Porter? Looks like the new owners of 'Gansett are considering abandoning the "retro/revival" aspect of the beers, because there were rumors of a "Narrangansett Cranberry Kolsch".

I'd much rather see a revival of Croft Ale and Pickwick Ale. I really miss nice hoppy golden ales- and that brewery specialized in them, with those two and, of course, Ballantine XXX Ale and the short-lived Ballantine Brewer's Gold Ale.

Speaking of Narragansett, I came across an interesting story from the mid-1990's in which the brewmaster of another RI brewpub, Union Station, "tours" the abandoned Narragansett brewery- which closed without notice, leaving personal items on desks and full bottles still on the bottling line over a decade later.

LAST CALL AT NARRAGANSETT (http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m3469/is_n11_v46/ai_16762761/pg_1?tag=artBody;col1)

One more reason to avoid the products of the "Pabst Brewing (sic) Company"- the horrible way over the years they've treated their employees and retirees- from all their now-closed breweries of Pabst, Pearl, Falstaff and General . Even worse than what they've done to their beers.
