Discovery’s Shark Week returns this month

It’s back.  Discovery′s annual Shark Week programming returns this month and is bringing along a new giveaway.  From August 9 to August 16 look for your annual week of shark-centered features.  Shark Week is television’s longest running summer TV event.  And you know what that means–Narragansett is back with an online store full of tie-ins to Steven Spielberg’s Jaws to coincide with Shark Week 2020.  Not only is Narragansett one of America’s oldest companies (they turned 21 in 1911), Jaws made its beer famous again in 1975 when Robert Shaw′s character Quint downed a can and crushed it to look tough in front of Richard Dreyfuss′s character Hooper.  Hooper created the the most humorous moment of the film, countering Quint by crushing his Styrofoam cup.

On Discovery, look for Tyson vs Jaws: Rumble on the Reef, Naked and Afraid of Sharks 2, Alien Sharks: First Contact, ShaqAttack, Air Jaws 2020, Sharks Gone Wild 3, Jaws Awakens, Lair of the Great White, Sharkadelic Summer, Monsters Under the Bridge, and more, all throughout the week.  Check out the above schedule and your local listings for air times.  Check out the Shark Week 2020 giveaway here.

Narragansett′s online shop has some great T-shirts featuring Jaws and the Quint can, plus a foam stress can, a skateboard deck, stickers, pins, logo shirts, hats, hoodies, ornaments, sunglasses, beach towels, posters, even skis and hockey sticks–all featuring the image of the beer can design from 1975, the shark, or the 1975 Narragansett logo–as it appeared in the film classic Jaws.  See the entire 1975 retro collection of tie-ins here at the Narragansett online store.

In case you missed it, catch Jason Statham in the summer fun shark flick The Meg, now on streaming platforms, Vudu, and Blu-ray, DVD and 4K.  Check out our review here at borg.  Stay up to speed on Syfy’s shark content at its website here.

Discovery′s annual Shark Week starts at 8 p.m. Central/9 p.m. Eastern beginning August 9 on the Discovery channel.
