Tröegs Brewery Announces Two New Scratch Beers
(Harrisburg,PA) – We’ve got more exciting news this month on the Scratch Beer front. As we approach our 200th beer donning the Scratch Beer moniker, we’re showing no signs of slowing down. On the horizon for July, we’ve got an easy-drinking Helles Lager as well as an Amber Ale brewed with Lemon Drop and Zeus hops. Also coming soon is our annual Ales for ALS™ beer (a hoppy Pale Ale brewed with a proprietary hop blend) to benefit the ALS Therapy Development Institute. Don’t forget to pick up a case of our annual White Ale (Scratch #196, a Belgian-style Witbier) in the General Store or grab a growler from the Tasting Room. This is a perennial favorite and won’t last long at the brewery!
In related Scratch Beer news, Chris and John made a quick field trip to visit our friends at Deer Creek Malthouse at the end of June. Deer Creek produces a variety of 2- and 6-row barley and rye malt at its small, artisan operation based out of the Philadelphia area. We’ve used Deer Creek’s malt in a few previous Scratch Beers as well as (717) Collaboration Ale for Harrisburg Beer Week. Last week, we brewed an India Pale Lager using 6-row malt procured from the trip. Be on the lookout for more Scratch Beers brewed using this high-quality, local malted barley.
