Narragansett Brewing Company
Made on honor, sold on merit
In early 2005, lifelong Rhode Islander Mark Hellendrung, along with a group of New England investors, purchased the rights to Narragansett Beer from Falstaff. Former Brewmaster from ‘Gansett’s glory days, Bill Anderson was brought on board to ensure the authenticity of the brew. That October, for the first time in a quarter century, Narragansett Beer was back in bottles and on bar taps.
In the 12 years since Narragansett has grown from virtually non-existence to New England’s 5th largest and the country’s 37th largest craft brewery. Nearly two thirds of all establishments in RI proudly serve Narragansett Beer, and the company has expended availability to 18 states plus the District of Columbia.
