This just in from the Hi, Neighbor! crew:

Autocrat Coffee Milk Stout, Narragansett Beer’s signature Rhode Island mash-up with the region’s most beloved coffee company, is back for the season. This time around, the bittersweet stout pays homage to its Rhody roots with two new updates.

The beer is now packaged in bright red and yellow cans [in 16-oz. sixpacks] inspired by the actual Autocrat Coffee packaging and, to top off ’Gansett’s home state brewing revival, this is the first year that the original Hi Neighbor Mash-Up beer is brewed at the Narragansett Brewery at The Guild in Pawtucket.

Also, to celebrate Autocrat’s return, ’Gansett is hosting a series of Breakfast for Dinner events and launch parties:

11.16: Breakfast for Dinner at the Ocean Mist (Wakefield), featuring the Ocean Mist’s famous breakfast menu and a screening of The Breakfast Club on the big screen
