The ‘Gansett Open complete with a full-on Nintendo Wii tennis tournament with very special surprise guests including the mayor of Pawtucket himself, Donald Grabien! In proper old-school fashion, the first serve of each match will be determined by playing the beer’s namesake, Up or Down. Just like the flip of a coin, the challenger selects “Up or Down” prior to spinning a vintage Bancroft racquet. The butt end of each racquet is imprinted with Bancroft’s iconic “B”, and when the racquet lands, the B will either be facing up or down! So come on down for music from DJ Haulin' Boats, food trucks, badminton, the Wii Tennis Tournament, and a whole bunch of Bancroft Up or Down Ale
