  Cultivator & Anthology Spring  
  The 2016 Hop Cycle has begun with the release of Cultivator Helles Bock! 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. Cultivator is available on draft and in 6-packs, 12-packs, and cases of 12-ounce bottles, as well as 12-packs of 12-ounce cans.

With the arrival of Cultivator comes a new Anthology sampler pack for springtime. Each Anthology Spring 12-pack is blooming with our best-selling Perpetual IPA plus year-round favorite HopBack Amber, Hop Cycle seasonal Cultivator Helles Bock, and another exclusive limited Scratch Beer release – a French-style Saison. Anthology Spring will be available in all of our distribution markets by mid-February. In the coming months, Anthology Summer and Fall will follow suit to include Perpetual IPA as well as rotating year-round, Hop Cycle, and Scratch Series beers.

 

  Nugget Nectar  
 

We’re still knee-deep in Nugget Nectar season, but don’t blink. It’ll be gone before you know it. Grab some while you can before this once-a-year release disappears until 2017.

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.

 

  DreamWeaver 12-packs  
  DreamWeaver Wheat is coming in 12-packs! The last of our year-round beers to be released in this format, look for DreamWeaver 12-packs everywhere Tröegs beer is sold by late February. The dream begins with open-top fermentation. At high krausen, a foamy, rocky yeast head crests the sides of the fermenter, releasing notes of black pepper and spicy clove. Unfiltered and cloudy with yeast, DreamWeaver is slightly tart and downright refreshing.  

  North Carolina Expansion  
  After launching in North Carolina back in September 2014, we’re gearing up to open two additional markets in this juggernaut of a craft beer state. By March, you can expect to see Tröegs throughout Asheville and the Outer Banks. We’ve already begun shipping beer to Asheville, so look for Tröegs to start popping up on shelves as early as mid-February. We plan to follow up with Outer Banks in early March. With the addition of these two markets, Tröegs will now be available across the entire state of North Carolina! Check out our Brew Finder to locate Tröegs beers near you.  

  Splinter Series  
 

Last month, we announced plans for our Splinter Cellar and the addition of three new foeders to expand our Splinter Beer Series of wood-aged beers. We’re excited to release a few Splinter Beers over the next few months leading up to the completion of the Splinter Cellar in early June. The first release will be barrel-aged Troegenator, available exclusively at the brewery in 375mL cork & cage bottles on Monday, February 29. We’ll release a few other Splinter Beers over the next few months, including Wild Elf, our first foeder experiment featuring sour cherries harvested locally from Peter’s Orchard. Tune in to troegs.com as well as our social media channels for all the latest Splinter Series news and announcements.

Dear Saint Arnold’s Army:

 
 

Our Annual St. Patrick’s Day Party at the Brewery 
Thursday, March 176:009:00 PM
 

On Thursday, March 17, we’ll be hosting our annual Saint Arnold Meets St. Patrick Party. The big show for the evening (besides the beer) is our Donegal Beard Growing Competition.

Dozens of brave contestants have been growing out their facial hair since the beginning of the year, and one of them will take home an iPad for their efforts. Of course, they will also get the glory of being a Donegal Beard Growing Champion. That is truly priceless.

For the evening, we’ll have our regular lineup of beers on tap, and we’ll also be tapping special casks of Divine Reserve No. 15, our Russian Imperial Stout released last year. Irish Stew in Bread Bowls will be available for purchase from our kitchen. All in all, it’s a lot more fun than drinking green beer.
 
Admission is $28 per person and includes beer (including one pint of cask conditioned DR15) and a commemorative pint glass. Attendance is limited, and this event sells out quickly every year.

Get your St. Patrick’s Day Party tickets here.

Pub Night at Saint Arnold
Friday, February 19 – 5:0010:00 PM

 
Gather your nerdiest friends. Assemble the geekiest team, and bring them to Pub Night this Friday. Geeks Who Drink Trivia is back! The fun starts at 7:00 PM, and Saint Arnold prizes await those with the most useless knowledge.

We’ll also be tapping two special cask conditioned beers during Pub Night. First, we’ll have a cask of Icon Blue – Coffee Porter with Toasted Coconut. We’ll also be tapping an Art Car IPA cask with Huell Melon hops, a German hop that lends melon and berry aroma. Just when you thought Art Car IPA couldn’t get any better!

As always, bring an appetite. Chef Ryan and our kitchen crew will be serving up Burgers, Brats, Jalapeño Teriyaki Wings, Spicy Fish Tacos and Shrimp Quesadillas!

Fish on Fridays

We always get excited for longstanding Houston traditions, and the Buffalo Bayou Partnership Regatta certainly qualifies. This year’s Regatta is the 44th Annual! The 15-mile American Canoe Association sanctioned race along scenic Buffalo Bayou is Texas’ largest canoe and kayak race. Paddlers (ages 12 and up) are welcome to enter competitively or just for pleasure.

Those not wanting to paddle can cheer on racers along the race route or catch the outdoor fun at the finish line festivities at Sesquicentennial Park (that’s where the beer comes in!).
