Tröegs WNC Launch & First Squeeze 2016 Nugget Nectar Celebration

troegs-eventJoin us on Thursday, February 18, 4:00-6:00pm, as we celebrate the WNC launch of Tröegs Independent Brewing with one of their national First Squeeze events for the knock-your-socks-off-hoppy 2016 Nugget Nectar. Meet some (really, really) cool people from the brewery, pick up an art print, beer swag, and of course, a beer tasting!

Troegs ‘Cultivator’ Hellesbock — “Emerging from springtime’s fertile ground, our 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.” [6.9% abv]

Troegs ‘Troegenator’ Dopplebock — “Monks had fasting figured out. No food? No problem. Just drink a Double Bock. Thick and chewy with intense notes of caramel, chocolate and dried stone fruit, ‘Nator (as we call him) serves as a tribute to this liquid bread style.” [8.2% abv]

Troegs ‘Jovial’ Dubbel — “Originally brewed for Chris’ wedding, we decided Jovial was just too good a union of dark stone fruit character and evocative notes of toffee, chocolate and molasses to make only once. You may kiss the beer.” [7.0% abv]

Troegs ‘LaGrave’ Tripel — “Named after our fave French backcountry ski town, LaGrave’s rare yeast produces a rocky head releasing aromas of crusty bread and earthy spices. Our Triple Golden Ale carves out flavors of ripe pear, straw and black pepper with a dry, champagne powder finish.” [8.0% abv]

Troegs ‘Perpetual’ IPA — “At Tröegs, artisanal meets mechanical in a state of IPA we call Perpetual. Cycling through our HopBack vessel and dry-hopping method, this bold Imperial Pale Ale emerges rife with sticky citrus rind, pine balm and tropical fruit.” [7.5% abv]

Troegs ‘Nugget Nectar’ — “It’s impossible to forget your first squeeze. Once a year, as the newest humulus lupulus harvest arrives at Tröegs, we blend these super-fresh hops into an Imperial Amber Ale. Excessively dry-hopped, Nugget Nectar is an explosion of pine, resin and mango.” [7.5% abv]
