Once a year, as the new hop harvest arrives at Tröegs, we blend super-fresh Nugget, Palisade and Simcoe hops into this Imperial Amber Ale. Excessively dry-hopped, Nugget Nectar is an explosion of pine, resin and mango. Visit our events page to find First Squeeze events in your area where you will have an opportunity to drink Nugget Nectar, hang out with some of the Tröegs team and score some free art prints from a few of our favorite artists. Most events will also have Nugget Nectar firkins and never-before-released Nitro Nugget Nectar! We will also be featuring a very special event in each of our artists’ hometowns where they will be signing their artwork live so keep an eye on our social media for announcements of dates and locations of these events. If you miss out on the free art prints don’t worry, you can always order them from the Nugget Shop online along with other great Nugget merchandise.
In order to make sure we are shipping the freshest Nugget Nectar possible to all of our markets, we need to release it in waves.

through the eyes of the artists
We asked eight of our favorite artists to put their spin on the iconic Nugget Nectar artwork. Their unique interpretations have been turned into frame-ready art prints that we will be giving away at our First Squeeze events. We also interviewed each artist and will be updating our blog with those interviews throughout the campaign.
