Whether leisurely enjoyed in the backyard with friends or chugged and crushed on the big screen in Jaws, Narragansett is a New England institution.
After successfully partnering up with Rhode Island companies Del’s Lemonade and Autocrat Coffee to brew Del’s Shandy and Autocrat Coffee Milk Stout, Narragansett has another collaborative beer on tap thanks to a partnership with famed Rhode Island doughnut shop Allie’s Donuts.
Allie’s Double Chocolate Porter, brewed with chocolate malt, dark crystal malt, and cocoa nibs, is inspired by Allie’s signature double chocolate doughnuts, a tradition at the shop since its founder, Frederick Alvin “Allie” Briggs, first opened its doors in the summer of 1968.

“Whether it’s a lazy Saturday morning tradition, a tasty birthday celebration, or just a pick-me-up on a bad day, Allie’s old fashioned donuts have filled a special place in Rhode Islanders’ hearts for nearly 50 years,” Mark Hellendrung, president of Narragansett Beer said in a press release. “We wanted to combine every local’s favorite pastry with our classic Porter to give people an authentic taste of two Ocean State staples. No matter the occasion, we hope Narragansett Allie’s Double Chocolate Porter evokes that same blissful feeling you get when biting into a freshly baked Allie’s donut.”
