Narragansett Beer (Pawtucket, Rhode Island) has officially announced that it is once again teaming up with Del’s Frozen Lemonade to tackle summer thirsts with the Seasonal Release of Del’s Watermelon Shandy.
Arriving as the latest installment in Narragansett’s “Hi Neighbor Mash Up” series, Del’s Watermelon Shandy is a refreshing blend of “natural watermelon flavor” from Del’s Frozen Lemonade and Narragansett Lager. Loaded with “sweet and tart watermelon flavors”, Del’s Watermelon Shandy (4.7% ABV) is sure to be “the perfect companion for your cooler this summer.”
“If you ever want a quick way to start a heated debate with your neighbor here in Rhode Island, and I know you do, just ask what their favorite Del’s flavor is,” says Mark Hellendrung, President of Narragansett Beer. “While Del’s has made a ton of great flavors in the last 70+ years, around here it’s the Lemon and Watermelon that we argue over the most. So we figured, ‘why not fuel the fire’? I suspect our Nobel Peace Prize is in the mail.”
Del’s Watermelon Shandy is rolling out now and is scheduled to hang around throughout the summer months. You can expect to find this Seasonal Release available in 6-packs of 16 oz. cans, 12-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at craft beer-friendly establishments located in Florida, Rhode Island and throughout the rest of Narragansett’s distribution area.

Fun Fact – On Del’s Frozen Lemonade: “Dating all the way back to 1840 in Naples, Italy, Del’s Frozen Lemonade began when great–grandfather Delucia carried snow into nearby caves, insulating it with a straw and then combining it with sugar and fresh lemon juice for a delectable frozen drink. Nearly a century later, DeLucia’s great–grandson Angelo brought the recipe to Cranston, Rhode Island, where locals got a first taste of the now beloved summer beverage. Today, Del’s Frozen Lemonade is symbol of summertime, revered by New Englanders as a go–to hot weather treat and available statewide in several varieties.”
Suggested Food Pairings – “The perfect refresher to complement standard American cookout fare like a hamburger or hot dog right off the grill, or try it with a garden salad.”
