How Narragansett Beer Rebuilt Its Brand With a Meager $100,000 Media Budget

Deep roots and word of mouth

It's not often that a 125-year-old brand can reinvigorate itself without a complete reinvention. But that's what Narragansett Brewing Company has been able to do. With a shoestring media budget of just $100,000 and guerilla-style word-of-mouth marketing, the brand has been revived, even moving past its New England roots and expanding to markets in the southern United States and on the West Coast.
