Tröegs Nugget Nectar

Tröegs Independent Brewing has announced the release of its once-a-year seasonal, Nugget Nectar.

Dry-hopped, this Imperial Amber Ale is meant to celebrate the arrival of “fresh-off-the-bine” Nugget hops from the brewery’s annual trek to the Pacific Northwest for hop selection.

“Nugget Nectar is the main reason we started going out to Yakima for hop selection,” explains Tröegs co-founding brother and brewmaster John Trogner. “We’re after Simcoe ripe with mango notes and Nugget hops full of grapefruit rind and pine. This beer is what it is because of careful attention to the annual harvest options.”

This seasonal release is balanced with enough kilned malt to add plenty of body, texture and a touch of sweetness in the finish, the brewery says.

This brew is 7.5% ABV.

To coincide with the release of this highly sought-after beer, the Hershey, PA-based brewery is reviving its popular First Squeeze events. Fans can enjoy fresh Nugget Nectar on draft, pick up limited glassware and take home illustrated art prints from hand-picked artists. A handful of events will also feature Nitro Nugget on tap and limited-release draft pours of Double Nugget Nectar.

Fans can also get their “first squeeze” of Nugget right from the source when Tröegs hosts its First Squeeze Weekend from Thursday, January 18 through Sunday, January 21. Celebrating all things Nugget Nectar, the 4-day event held at the brewery will also feature Double Nugget Nectar on draft, special firkin tappings, food specials, giveaways, artist print signings and much more.

Nugget Nectar is available on draft, in 12-oz. cans and bottles, and in 16-oz. cans everywhere Tröegs beer is sold.

This follows the release of Tröegs Double Blizzard Double IPA.
