Narragansett Beer released Lovecraft Honey Ale to celebrate the life, works and heritage of Providence’s hometown horror fiction writer, H.P. Lovecraft. As the prologue in Narragansett’s Lovecraft Series, the new beer is crafted in collaboration with Revival Brewing Co. Lovecraft Honey Ale is made with a base of honey malt and finished with a touch of hops, producing a bold yet sweet honey-colored ale, the company says. Backboned by the combination of five pale malts, the beer opens up with a hint of honey sweetness and then turns with a herbal hop crescendo, it adds. The brew will be available in six packs of 16-ounce tallboy cans, with a suggested retail price between $10.99 and $11.99. The beer is 7 percent alcohol by volume and contains 30 international bittering units. Lovecraft Honey Ale will be distributed throughout Rhode Island; Massachusetts; Connecticut; New Hampshire; Vermont; Maine; New York; Philadelphia; Washington, D.C.; North Carolina; and Portland, Ore. The timing and availability of Lovecraft Honey Ale will vary for each market.
