While everyone at Tröegs knows the holiday season kicks off with the emergence of the Mad Elf, we like to prepare for his visit with this “undressed” version to mark the halfway point to December. Naked Elf gets right to the crux of Mad Elf’s flavor by highlighting its distinctive yeast strain. Gone are the cherries, honey and chocolate malt that dress up the Mad Elf, leaving him stark-raving nude to reveal the yeast in all its birthday-suited glory. Displaying notes of cinnamon, allspice and clove amid tangy fruity esters, this naughty little elf definitely spices things up a bit around here. 7.5% ABV and 17 IBU. Availability: cases, six-packs, single bottles, draft & growler fills.

Two Scratch Beers released today: Scratch 196 - White Ale (pictured) and 197 - Belgian-style Brown Ale (Blackberry Sour). A perennial favorite here at Tröegs, our Belgian-style Witbier (or “white ale”) features a blend of wheat, oats, and malted barley along with coriander, citrus peel and peppercorns to create a complex yet refreshing flavor. With a dense haze and foamy white head, Scratch 196 incorporates subtle tartness and a delicate orange aroma to complement the aromatic juju and distinctive LaChouffe yeast. 5.2% ABV and 23 IBU. Available on draft in the Tasting Room and in bottles through the General Store. (197 available on draft only.)

Two Scratch Beers released today: Scratch 193 - Rye Ale and 194 - Sour Wheat Ale (pictured). Gose is a German-style wheat beer punctuated by a refreshing citrusy tartness and hint of salt. The salty component complements another key ingredient - coriander - which introduces a zesty lemon-like citrus flavor. We could have stopped right there, but we decided to explore the style a bit further. Chef Christian created a refreshing strawberry rhubarb syrup to add a hint of sweetness and balance to this refreshing blast of mouth-puckering joy. 4.0% ABV and 10 IBU. Draft & growler fills only.

Memorial Day weekend signifies the start of grilling season. Naturally, burgers and hot dogs come to mind, but what about smoked trout? After all, we’re in the midst of trout season here in Central PA. And at Tröegs, we’ve always looking for an excuse to fire up the ol’ smoker. Today, Sous Chef Matt prepares wood smoked trout for a creative Snack Bar large plate dish. Our trout finds its way downstream from Lebanon County, where we source these beauties from Limestone Springs Trout Hatchery and Fishing Preserve. To prepare this dish, Matt first brines the fish with water, salt, brown sugar, and pie spices for 48 hours. Once dressed, it’s off to the smoker, where we wood smoke the fish at a high temperature to cook through. However, we serve the dish chilled with pickled deviled eggs and asparagus, then garnish with radish, trout roe and crème fraiche. Pair this flavorful wood smoked delicacy with our tried-and-true Pale Ale, a Tröegs Brewery classic for a memorable holiday meal.

Our grilled trio of cheese on house sourdough is a Tröegs Snack Bar classic. As its name implies, this generous sandwich features a trio of grilled cheese goodness including Cheddar, Brie, and Colby varieties. However, the star of the show is our house sourdough bread, painstakingly made from scratch right in our kitchen. Our resident bread master Kate mixes high-gluten white flour with unbleached organic flour from Daisy Flour Mill in Annville, PA to form huge slabs of dough. Each handcrafted loaf requires over six pounds of the raw dough blend. Once we oven-bake to perfection, we’re ready to assemble this comfort food classic, which we serve with a zesty tomato dip. Wash down this Snack Bar staple with a tall glass of Sunshine Pils. This delicious combo will transport you to your very own “happy place.”

Beer isn’t the only thing brewing at here at Tröegs. Direct from the mind of Chef Christian, we bring you our Cold Jar Tea. Available at our Snack Bar counter, this naturally sweetened concoction begins with eight gallons of water and four tea pouches steeped with dried apricots, vanilla, honey, and – the secret ingredient – whole flower hops. After an hour, we add freshly squeezed orange juice and steep an additional ten minutes for the finishing touch. Finally, we chill and serve in a mason jar, which you get to keep! Although we love when our customers drink our beer, this tea offers a tasty alternative for those looking for a non-alcoholic beverage during their visit to the brewery.
