Narragansett Beer Eyes Warren River Site
June 16, 2011
EastBayRI: The CEO of Narragansett Beer, who in 2006 bought the rights to Rhode Island’s favorite local brew, is eyeing the American Tourister plant in north Warren, Rhode Island, as one of several possible locations for his long-awaited brewery in Rhode Island.
Since he revived the favorite brand five years ago, Mr. Hellendrung, a Rhode Island native, has had the company’s flagship lager brewed and bottled in upstate New York (other, seasonal and specialty brews are brewed in cooperation with the Trinity brewing company in Providence).
Establishing a local brewery to do the work has always been the plan, he said, and he’s known of the Warren site for some time. He’s also looking at several other possible locations, including a spot in Providence and another in Cranston.
