This 6.4% ABV winter IPA is our most popular Hop Cycle seasonal

Everybody knows … at the center of our holiday beer collection is Mad Elf. Festive, delicious, a little decadent … Mad Elf captures so many things people love about the holidays.

But here at Tröegs, Mad Elf is just the beginning. The variety and depth we offer fit the season like a cable-knit glove.

Today, two more budding holiday icons are dropping.

First up is fan favorite Blizzard of Hops. This 6.4% ABV winter IPA is our most popular Hop Cycle seasonal, and it’s a nod to hop growers around the world, thanking them for another successful harvest.

We taste: spruce tips, pineapple and orange rind.

This winter IPA weighs in at 6.4% ABV.

This storm of hoppy citrus and pine notes is available in 12-oz bottles and cans and in 1/2 and 1/6 kegs. Find it near you at

Also releasing today is our Most Wonderful Beer sampler pack. We’ve combined the perfect mix of our holiday favorites into one convenient pack. Each 12-pack includes two cans each of Mad Elf, Perpetual IPA, Troegenator Double Bock, Blizzard of Hops Winter IPA, DreamWeaver Wheat and Grand Cacao Chocolate Stout.

It’s a perfect – and giftable – mix of holiday favorites.

This pack is perfect for holiday gatherings and makes a great gift for beer-loving friends and family!

Our Most Wonderful Beer sampler packs also allow customers to try some delicious Mad Elf blends like Chocolate Elf. Simply pour 50% Grand Cacao Chocolate Stout and 50% Mad Elf into your favorite chalice and discover the goodness of chocolate-covered cherries and subtle spice.

Our Mad Elf blends are greater than the sum of their parts.

Or try the blend that started it all – Mad Dreams, a combination of 30% Mad Elf and 70% DreamWeaver Wheat. The subtle clove of DreamWeaver complements the cinnamon and allspice notes of Mad Elf perfectly. These dreamy blends are greater than the sum of their delicious parts!

While you’re checking out our holiday beers, don’t forget to dive into our Food Notes for complementary and contrasting pairing suggestions. Our brewmaster and chefs put their heads together to nudge you toward flavors that work with our beers and away from flavors that don’t.

Complement Mad Elf’s sweet, fruity profile with baked brie. For a contrasting pairing, try Troegenator with your favorite fruitcake recipe to add a fruity, spicy dimension to Nator’s raisiny malt flavor.
