Once a year, as the new hop harvest arrives at Tröegs, we blend super-fresh Nugget, Palisade and Simcoe hops into an iconic Imperial Amber Ale known as Nugget Nectar.

It’s no surprise that Nugget hops take center stage, adding dank notes of pine and grapefruit. Simcoe chimes in with hints of ripe mango and creamsicle, and it’s all balanced with enough kilned malt to add body and a touch of sweetness.

With its beautiful orange color, big hop flavor and 7.5% ABV, Nugget Nectar provides plenty of warmth on those dark, cold winter nights.

To celebrate the release of Nugget Nectar, we’ve revived our popular First Squeeze events. Fans can enjoy fresh Nugget on draft, snag free limited glassware, and take home illustrated art prints from some of our favorite artists. A handful of events will also feature Nitro Nugget on tap and limited-release draft pours of Double Nugget Nectar.

Look for creative takes on our iconic Nugget Nectar label art from these artists:

Rachel Conville, illustrator from Hershey, PA, and Tröegs’ in-house designer

Evangeline Gallagher, Baltimore-based illustrator known for quirky interpretations and detailed line work

Kacie Gilgore, marketer-turned-printmaker from York, PA, with tattoo-style flair

Darrin Milliner, Pittsburgh artist behind the label art for Tropical Stout, our Barrel & Flow Fest collaboration beer

Lisa Quine, Cleveland-based mural artist and hand letterer

Louis Wes, whose flowing, colorful cartoon illustrations are born in southern New Jersey
