Narragansett Brewing Company, Providence, Rhode Island Calories: 114 This is a perfect replacement for those bland "lite" beers that normally show up at summer beach parties and barbecues. Actually — it's not so much a replacement as a step up. Narragansett was probably the first brewery to ever make a light beer when they made a similar beer in the 1960s. They changed the formula a bit but it's evolved well. This is a crisp and bubbly beerthat will quench your thirst without making you self-conscious about your waist.
