PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Providence native son and horror writer H.P. Lovecraft is getting his own beer.

Narragansett Beer President Mark Hellendrung told WPRO-AM Saturday (https://bit.ly/1uoqxT5 ) the company is launching a Lovecraft Honey Ale to celebrate the late writer’s literary work. It’s being launched on Jan. 19, the birthday of Edgar Allan Poe, whom Lovecraft admired.

Narragansett has launched several other locally-inspired brews, including a Del’s Shandy and an Autocrat Coffee Milk Stout.

Lovecraft lived for years on Angell Street near Brown University, and local landmarks were used in some of his works. There was a big convention of his fans in Providence last year. The capital also has an intersection named in honor of Lovecraft, and the historical society has held Lovecraft walking tours.
