Details on Tröegs Scratch Beers #135,136,137 + 138
(Hershey,PA) – 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.
