New Lovecraft Lager Launch At Arcade
(1.19) The latest in the Lovecraft-themed brews makes its debut Thursday night at the Arcade Providence. These so-called block parties take place indoors on the ground floor avenue, with people wandering in and out of participating shops and restaurants. (Facebook event.)
About the beer: Made in collaboration with Revival brewer Sean Larkin, the new Unnamable Black Lager is described by Gansett Brewery as follows:
This Black Lager is brewed with Chocolate Rye, Cara Red, Carafra Special 1, and Pilsner Malts for a roasty brew with notes of toffee, caramel, coffee, and dark chocolate. Citra hops add an extra bite of bitterness and a touch of citrus to the finish.
About the label: Rhode Island artist Jarrett McPhee executed the label art on this, the sixth, installment of the Lovecraft series. This information comes courtesy of the namable Lou Papineau over at Bottles & Cans & Clap Your Hands who adds,
The beer [7.5% ABV] was inspired by the short story “The Unnamable” [written in 1923 and published in the July 1925 issue of Weird Tales], which relates “two men discussing, and later encountering, something horrifying and truly unnamable,” per the ’Gansettites.
I love the little guy on the lower right. And yes, Thursday is Edgar Allan Poe’s birthday! So . . . drink up? Whatever. Free samples of the new brew for those 21+.
Obviously Rogue Island, New Harvest, and the Lovecraft Arts & Sciences Council will be open for the duration of the party. But walk around and check it all out.
6:30pm to 11pm, Thursday, January 19, Arcade Providence, 65 Weybosset Street, (directions)
