Pucker Up with Nugget Nectar
With The Mad Elf entering hibernation mode, now seems a fitting time to unleash our revered mid-winter seasonal, Nugget Nectar. With a heady collection of American hops, Nugget Nectar will rekindle your romance with the succulent humulus lupulus overload you’ve come to expect from this bold Imperial Amber Ale. “Nugget Nectar was inspired by fresh new hops rolling in from the harvest,” said John Trogner. Nugget Nectar is intensified with whole flower Nugget cones added to our hopback vessel and dry-hopped with our patented HopsCyclone™ technique. Keeping freshness in mind, we are shipping Nugget Nectar as fast as it is packaged. You can expect cases, six-packs, and bombers to start appearing in Central Pennsylvania in mid-January and expanding through our eight-state distribution area over the following four weeks. Draft Nugget Nectar will be released in mid-February and into early March.
PIPA in Perpetuity
After what appeared to be an unfortunate hop shortage, we are pleased to announce that Perpetual IPA is now flowing at retailers and our own General Store. Due to the overwhelming demand of our newest year-round beer (and thanks to the abundance of Citra hops from this year’s yield), we’re increasing production to ensure all you hopheads that Perpetual IPA is poised to flow indefinitely. Thanks for making this beer fly off the shelves!
Full Moon Firkin
The date and approximate time of a specific full moon can be calculated from the following equation:
d = 20.362955 + 29.530588861 x N + 102.026 x 10–12 x N2
For those of you who are mathematically challenged, our “Full Moon Firkin” series continues into 2013 with its first event scheduled to occur on Saturday, January 26. We will tap firkins of Nugget Nectar and Perpetual IPA for a special side-by-side tasting beginning at 3 p.m. Attributed to Native American folklore, the name “Wolf Moon” is derived from hungry wolf packs heard howling outside the natives’ villages during January’s full moon. In anticipation of the throngs of hopheads this event is likely to attract, we feel it is rather fitting to offer up this dog-eat-dog throwdown between two of our hoppiest contenders that will leave you foaming at the mouth!
Band of Brewers
Tröegs Brewery’s very own award-winning brewery band, Starsan, is set to come off a lengthy hiatus to participate in the inaugural Philly Beer Scene Band of Brewers event! This special charity concert will pit six local PA breweries against each other in a no-holds-barred, Battle of the Bands-style showdown. Participating breweries include Weyerbacher, Yards, Dock Street, Sly Fox, Victory, and of course Tröegs, who will be playing for the Gift of Life Organ Donation Program in memory of Danny Glover. Band of Brewers will take place at World Café Live in Philadelphia on Sunday, February 10 beginning at 1 p.m. and will also include draft beer and a special firkin from each participating brewery.
