Monday 9/19 to Monday 9/26: Narragansett Beer’s Neighbor Day Celebration Series Continues
Narragansett’s Neighbor Day Celebration tour is still going, so make sure to soak up the last of the month-long tour (in beer) and celebrate the final days. The crew has already hit Back Bay and Cambridge, but festivities continue this week in Allston/Brighton and Worcester. The ’Gansett team will visit its neighbors at bars and restaurants at each stop with games, giveaways (including “Hi Neighbor” 16-oz can coozies — hell yes) and, most importantly, shouts of beer on the house. Can’t make it out? Then grab a six-pack (Narragansett Fest, perhaps) and celebrate on your own. (Free, visit, @GansettBeer, or for exact locations, time updates, and event inquires.)
