Philly Loves Tröegs!
Tröegs loves Philadelphia, and June proved to be quite a fruitful month for us. The city bestowed its collective brotherly love upon us with a wealth of honors from two prestigious awards ceremonies. We’re pleased to announce that we’ve accumulated a total of SIX “Best of the Philly Beer Scene” awards for 2013, including: 1. Best Lager – Sunshine Pils 2. Best Wheat Beer – DreamWeaver Wheat 3. Best IPA/Pale Ale – Perpetual IPA 4. Best Seasonal Beer – Nugget Nectar 5. Philly Tap Finder Award for Most Searches Local Beer – Nugget Nectar 6. Sales Rep of the Year – Nick Johnson Additionally, we also captured the 1st Place trophy in the Pilsner category for Sunshine Pilsner at the 2013 Philadelphia Inquirer “Brew-Vitational” event, which we received during the Opening Tap event to kick off this year’s Philly Beer Week. Cheers to our legions of fans who took the time to vote for Tröegs in the Philly Beer Scene awards. You’ve successfully reciprocated the love back to us, and we thank you!
‘Tis the Summer Season
The Fourth of July is just days away. Do you know what you’ll be drinking when the fireworks start lighting up the evening sky? Celebrate your independence and the commencement of summer with a pair of our GABF gold medal-winning beers: our year-round DreamWeaver Wheat and current seasonal Sunshine Pils. Experience an unfiltered blast of spicy, mouthwatering joy with our dreamiest creation, DreamWeaver Wheat. Our interpretation of a classic German-style Hefeweizen features a pleasant banana note that complements the pepper and clove character, resulting in a refreshing beer that pairs well with light fare such as salads and seafood. For those seeking something a bit more on the hoppy side, our Sunshine Pils has summer written all over it! Crisp and light-bodied but with a kicked-up hop character, Sunshine Pils is the perfect all-day beer to combat the sweltering heat of the season. Whichever you choose, both will treat you nicely all summer long!
Expanded Tour Hours
Now it’s even easier to get up close and personal with Tröegs Brewery, because we’ve recently expanded our Guided Tasting Tour schedule to include three additional time-slots on Sunday afternoons. For your convenience, we’ve added 12:15, 1:45 and 3:15pm time-slots on Sundays, giving you the chance to witness first-hand what we’re all about. Our Guided Tasting Tour gives visitors a unique behind-the-scenes glimpse at a working production brewery. Your small tour group will witness the entire production process as well as taste and smell the building blocks of beer from raw ingredients and fermenting beer to fresh beer from our packaging line. Our Guided Tasting Tour costs only $5 and includes beer samples and a take-home souvenir glass. Guided Tasting Tour reservations are highly recommended and are limited to ten people per tour.
Scratch Beer Update
Our first-ever Scottish Ale, Scratch #102, was released on Wednesday, June 26 in the Tasting Room. This deep copper-colored strong ale boasts a complex malt flavor, chewy mouthfeel, and a slight hint of smoke with a mild herbal hop character. Availability: draft and growler fills only. We’ve got a horde of new Scratch Beers and limited releases on the horizon for July, including an India-style Session Ale, a German-style Schwartzbier, a Belgian Golden Ale, and finally an Imperial IPA! We’ll also have another limited draft release of Rugged Trail Nut Brown Ale coming soon, so check our Tasting Room draft list for updates. We’ll also be sure to keep everyone in the know via Facebook and Twitter.
New Tröegs Merchandise
Stroll on over to our e-store for some brand new Tröegs merchandise including new apparel designs for the ladies and some other cool items.

We also have Women’s teal blue Perpetual IPA T-shirts in stock for those ladies who love their hops! Perfect for summer get-togethers or a day at the beach, we also have tie-dyed Tröegs Frisbees that provide hours of fun for all ages. Brand new for 2013 and hot off the press, we’ve got custom Tröegs metal bar trays. These decorative and functional trays are 13-in. in diameter and feature a colorful design adorned with the classic Tröegs brewery logo.
