Boughten: Narragansett Beer in Wisconsin

The entire contents of the author’s refrigerator.

When my father wanted to drink irresponsibly as a young man in New England, he did so with Narragansett Beer. Unfortunately, living in Wisconsin, I’ve been forced — until now, at least — I’ve been forced to break from family tradition and drink other brands of beer irresponsibly.

Recently, however, Narragansett announced their intentions to fulfill the brewery’s manifest destiny — i.e. to overspread and to possess the whole of the continent which Providence has given them, etc., etc.

And, fortunate for those who (a) operate baseball-related blogs and (b) are unafraid to employ the flimsiest of pretenses, it appears as though Narragansett has released — and the author has purchased today a six pack of — something called Grand Slam Baseball Cans, the distinguishing characteristic of which is that it (i.e. the aforementioned can) features a design with a baseball and playing field and also some cheerful comments on the nature of the game itself.

    That caption lies. I can clearly see what appears to be a half-consumed gallon of iced tea in the corner.
