(Hershey, PA) – Tröegs Brewing Co. announced the return of Sunshine Pils this week as well as a brand-new package to come for the beer. Also, another Scratch Beer update. More below from the company’s newsletter…
Tröegs Sunshine Pils
After a brutally cold and unforgiving winter season, we at Tröegs have been experiencing some serious cabin fever. And what better way to usher in sunny skies and warm temperatures than with our summer seasonal, Sunshine Pils!
Our crisp, refreshing thirst-quencher returns in 2014 as part of our Hop Cycle seasonal series. Cases, six-packs, and single 12oz. bottles are currently available in our General Store, and draft and growler fills are available in the Tasting Room. Also, kegs and cases have started shipping to retailers throughout our eight-state distribution footprint.
Finally, we are excited to announce that Sunshine Pils is coming in cans! Expect to enjoy some liquid summer in cans by the first week in May. We can’t think of a better friend to take to the beach, on a hike, or on a camping trip!
Scratch Beer Update
We just released three new Scratch Beers in the Tasting Room on Thursday, March 27.
Scratch #135 – Rye Ale is a full-flavored Amber Rye Ale hopped with a healthy dose of Chinook, Crystal, and El Dorado hops and 15% Rye added to the malt bill to impart a subtle dry, spicy finish.
Scratch #137 – IPA represents further refining of our HopCyclone process. Aggressively dry-hopped with 100lbs. of equal parts Cascade, Chinook, and Citra hops, this intense IPA doesn’t pull any punches.
The flavor of Scratch #138 – Belgian Style Brown Ale originates in the Abbey Ale yeast strain, which produces a distinctive dried fruit quality similar to raisins, prunes, figs, and dates. As the flavor develops, the dried fruit character endures, adding traces of caramel, toffee, chocolate, and dark rum as well as subtle spices, roasted nuts, and toasted grains.
We also still have Scratch #136 – Red Ale on tap in the Tasting Room, with a limited supply of bottles coming soon to the General Store.
Hurry in to try them all before they disappear! On the Scratch Beer horizon, look for a new Session IPA as well as the return of Rugged Trail, both coming to draft lines in the Tasting Room later in April.
