| Tröegs Brewery Releases Nugget Nectar in Bottles and Draft |
As you read this, Nugget Nectar is being shipped throughout our seven-state distribution network. We expect to have Nugget Nectar 12-ounce bottles in all markets by January 22.
Nugget Nectar 22 ounce bottles and draft should start being released the first week of February, with a few markets seeing it the prior week.
Finishing at 7.5% abv, Nugget Nectar is an Imperial Amber Ale that draws inspiration from Tröegs’ flagship brand, Hopback Amber Ale. “We start with a base recipe similar to Hopback, but then we take it up a few notches by doubling the malts and tripling the hops,” explains Chris Trogner.
Nugget Nectar features Nugget, Warrior and Tomahawk hops, and uses a six-stage hopping process. “We add hops at four different times during the boil,” explains John Trogner. “After the boil, the wort flows through 25 pounds of hops in our hopback; then it is dry-hopped in the fermentation tank with an additional 50 pounds of hops. While the hops are key to this recipe, the caramel malts give the beer a delicate sweetness that tempers the intense hop flavor.”

|I've never had this one yet. I've tried many other Troegs beer and really enjoy them. I've heard that this one is really good.|
