image002.pngNarragansett Beer announced this week the release of a limited-edition Autocrat Coffee Milk Stout, a collaboration between the two iconic Rhode Island companies. The beer is a blend of Narragansett’s bittersweet milk stout with dark, Autocrat coffee. Lincoln's Autocrat Coffee has been a staple in the Ocean State since the 1890s. Similar to chocolate milk but made with Autocrat coffee syrup, coffee milk is the official drink of the state of Rhode Island.

“I’ve been a big fan of Autocrat since my Little League days, so I’m especially excited to introduce this brew to the market,” says Mark Hellendrung, president of Narragansett Beer. “My Little League coach worked at Autocrat and drove one of the big delivery trucks -- we would try to aim homers toward the truck."

Narragansett’s Autocrat Coffee Milk Stout will be available the week of December 16 in six packs of 16-ounce tallboy cans throughout Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut. The beer is 5.3 percent Alcohol By Volume and 30 IBUs (international bitterness units). The beer retails between $8.49 and $8.99 per six-pack of tallboy cans.
