Tröegs Beers

YEAR ROUND BREWS

Tröegs Pale Ale

Tröegs Pale Ale is an American style Pale Ale that is aggressively hopped with Northwest Cascades and balanced with crystal malts to create a hoppy, crisp, copper-colored ale. Simple and classic, yet full-flavored and sessionable.

HopBack Amber Ale

HopBack Amber Ale gets its unique name and taste from the hopback vessel in our brewhouse. Packed full of whole flower hops, each batch circulates through the vessel, creating a fresh hoppy aroma, spicy taste and a rich caramel note that defines our signature Amber Ale.

Troegenator® Double Bock

Troegenator Double Bock is a dark, strong lager. It pours into a glass with a bronze to brown color, fluffy white head and bready malt aroma. The Troegenator leaves a rich, warming feeling and subtle spicy flavors. The style, Double Bock, dates back a century or so ago. During periods of fasting without solid foods, the Monastic brewers relied on the Double Bock; a stronger, richer beer to fulfill their basic nutritional needs. Known to them as "liquid bread," a Double Bock has a strong malt aroma and rich chewy body. In the spirited tradition of naming a Double Bock using the suffix "-ator," we give you Troegenator to provide warmth and nourishment all throughout the year.

DreamWeaver® Wheat

Long toasty days, cool breezy nights and a splash of magic provide the inspiration for the Troegs brothers’ dreamiest creation—Dreamweaver Wheat. Combining wheat with Munich and Pilsner malts, German Northern Brewer hops, open top fermentation and a yeast strain that imparts a peppery, clove taste with a slight hint of banana, Dreamweaver Wheat is an unfiltered blast of spicy, mouthwatering joy.

JavaHead Stout

JavaHead's recipe is based on our original Oatmeal Stout. After the boil, the hot wort passes through our hopback vessel on its way to fermentation. Packed full of whole leaf hops and a bed of ground coffee beans, the hopback vessel is similar to using a huge French press, intensifying the coffee nose and releasing subtle hints of coffee flavor. The result is a lush, smooth mouthfeel balanced with cocoa, roast, and subtle coffee flavors.

Perpetual IPA

In our constant evolution as a brewery, we’ve developed an undying drive to meld the organic and the mechanical. Perpetual IPA utilizes our hopback and dry-hopping to engineer a bold Imperial Pale Ale. It features Bravo, Chinook and Mt. Hood hops in the boil, Mt. Hood and Nugget hops in the hopback, and is further dry-hopped with Citra and Cascade hops.

LaGrave

LaGrave (pronounced \l?-gräv\), the first of our corked and caged bottle releases, is inspired by nature’s untamed beauty. Bottle conditioned and highly carbonated, this Triple Golden Ale is steeped in the tradition of strong ales originally brewed in Belgium. The unique Belgian yeast, which is fermented at a slightly higher temperature than normal, forms the bedrock of LaGrave’s complex flavors. Strong and alluring, LaGrave boasts a sweet, fruity flavor with a well-rounded mouthfeel and semi-dry, lingering bitter finish.

Jovial

Jovial adjective \’jo-ve-?l\ Cheerful and friendly; full of happiness and joy. Brimming with optimism, Jovial reveals its enduring charm and infinite merriment with each passing sip. This enticing Belgian-style Dubbel ale features hints of raisin, fig, date, and prune. As the flavor develops, traces of toffee, chocolate, and subtle spices emerge. Jovial is bottle conditioned and highly carbonated. Hold chalice and pour into center of the glass to release the yeast’s complex character.

SEASONAL BREWS

Cultivator Helles Bock

HopCycle: February-April

Emerging from springtime’s fertile ground, Cultivator celebrates the start of hop-growing season as sprawling fields of hop rhizomes climb and tether to hop bines. This spring bock delivers hints of toasted grains, fresh baked bread and delicate floral hops.

Sunshine Pils®

HopCycle: April - July

The sun's role dominates the Hop Cycle as vines grow before the human eye and budding hop cones reach maturity beneath the sun's rays. Sunshine Pils combines the refreshing snap of a Euro-style Pilsner with an assertive hop character. Crisp. Hoppy. Pilsner.

Hop Knife Harvest Ale

HopCycle: August – October

Hop Knife Harvest Ale recognizes the meticulous, time-honored tradition of hand-harvesting hops at the peak of maturity. Our HopCyclone process creates an inward spiral of hop dispersal during fermentation, releasing a bounty of citrus, resin and tropical aromas.

Blizzard of Hops Winter IPA

HopCycle: November – January

Blizzard of Hops confirms a successful harvest and the end of The Hop Cycle. As winter slowly creeps in, we salute hop growers who process and ship hops around the world. Enjoy the fruits of their labor and savor sticky notes of citrus and pine with this revitalizing Winter IPA.

Nugget Nectar®

Limited Release: January - March

Squeeze those hops for all they’re worth and prepare to pucker up: Tröegs’ Nugget Nectar Ale will take hopheads to nirvana with a heady collection of Nugget, Warrior and Tomahawk hops. Starting with the same base ingredients of our flagship HopBack Amber Ale, Nugget Nectar intensifies the malt and hop flavors to create an explosive hop experience.

Flying Mouflan

Limited Release: April

Originally brewed as part of the Scratch Beer Series, the Flying Mouflan is the first beer to come out of the one-off series to become part of the brewery’s roster of production brews. We classify this beer as pushing Nugget Nectar off the side of a cliff. It is bold and intense–think hops dipped in candied sugar and rolled in dark chocolate nibs. Over time, the Flying Mouflan transforms into lush raisin and chocolate overtones.

Master of Pumpkins

Limited Release: October

Brewed with native Pennsylvania neck pumpkins harvested just a few miles from our brewery, Master of Pumpkins conjures the spirit of autumn by combining roasted pumpkins and traditional pie spices with a French saison yeast. This natural fermentation releases a palate of vanilla, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, ginger, and honey. Taste it you will see, more is all you need!

Mad Elf® Ale

Limited Release: October - December

The Mad Elf, a cheerful creation to warm your heart and enlighten your tongue. The combination of Cherries, Honey, and Chocolate Malts delivers gentle fruits and subtle spices. Fermented and aged with a unique yeast, this ruby red beer has significant warming strength that underlies the pleasant character of this intriguing yet delicious Ale. The Mad Elf, a jolly and delicious beer for the Holidays.

The cranberry is one of only three fruits that can trace its roots back to North American soil. Although its growing season begins in September, the cranberry is most associated with the winter season. Since this little red berry resonates with so many people during this time of year, we find it fitting to release this beer during the commencement of the holiday season. Typically, cranberries are viewed as too bitter and sour to eat raw. However, this magic ingredient lends a pleasant tart, fruity finish and complements the roasty character of this robust porter, providing Scratch #165 with its simple yet festive charm.
