It was 19 years ago when Tröegs — armed with not much more than a six-gallon pot, a beat-to-crap stove and a burning desire — set up shop on Paxton Street in Harrisburg.

We’ve come a long way since then, but we haven’t lost that burning desire, and we certainly haven’t forgotten our roots.

So once again, we’re pulling out all the stops to help celebrate Harrisburg Beer Week, running from April 22-30 at breweries, bars and restaurants throughout the area.

(717) Collaboration Ale – 4/22 release

For starters, Day 1 of Harrisburg Beer Week marks the release of the next round of (717) Collaboration Ale. Brewed with our friends at Appalachian and Pizza Boy, this year’s version is a draft-only IPA with tons of citrusy and tropical hops and a silly amount of orange zest.

Here at Tröegs, we’ll be tapping our first keg of (717) at 7:17 p.m. on Friday, April 22.

PA Flavor – 4/23

From 1 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 23, we’ll be at the Farm Show for PA Flavor, a beer and food pairing event that brings together dozens of Pennsylvania breweries, food producers and restaurants. Our chefs put a twist on a New England classic, the lobster roll. They’ve whipped up crawfish and shrimp salad on a house-baked corn roll with pickled okra and a dusting of potato-chip crumble. Grab yours, along with a Sunshine Pils, under the Tröegs tent.

Right after PA Flavor, we’ll be hitting McGraths on Locust Street for a special firkin of our newest year-round beer, Solid Sender.

Art of Tröegs at Millworks – 4/27

On Wednesday, April 27, we’ll be Making Art and Drinking Tröegs at The Millworks in Midtown. Drop by from 6 to 9 p.m. for a wood-fired pizza and beer-pairing menu, a firkin of limited Scratch Double IPA, a community art piece for you to paint, Tröegs coloring book giveaways and a chance to meet Art of Tröegs sculptor Jason Lyons.

And more …

We also have a brunch and beer pairing at Sturges Speakeasy, oak-aged Troegenator at Arooga’s Camp Hill, a meet-the-brewers night at Midtown Tavern, a coloring contest at Federal Taphouse and more. Make sure to hunt down a “Proudly Brewed in PA” Art Print at each of our events!
