The beer, a collaboration between Rhode Island institutions Narragansett Beer Co. and Del's Lemonade, was released May 12. It sold out in its first week, the Providence Journal reported.

Mark Hellendrung told the Journal another shipment has gone out in time for Memorial Day weekend. The beer is similar to Mike's Hard Lemonade.

A new shipment hit the Brookline (Mass.) Liquor Market this week after it quickly sold out.

"Don't worry, we got more," read a post on the store's Twitter account.

In addition to Rhode Island, the beer is being sold in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York, according to the Journal.

Not one store in Cranston has it or WW I found it in Providence at City Liquors! He has tons of it! It is not for me so I cannot give my opinion on the taste! All stores say they sell out in a few hours!

I work in Providnce public schools, and we had a 12 yrs old bring this beer to class thinking it was lemonade, I wish it says the word beer on the can in a bigger print.

I liked it, but I also knew that it would be nowhere as sweet as Del's. If you want malt-liquor, drink Mike's hard. It's definitely still a beer.

It was alright but tastes more or less exactly the same as other shandy's on the market. Personally, I like the taste of Sam Adams' Porch Rocker a bit better.
