Troegs Scratch 98 Triple Mango IPA

Troegs Scratch 98 Triple Mango IPA

Last spring, Brad Moyer ran a guest post about his story winning Al’s of Hampden’s Triple IPA homebrew competition. As his prize, the beer would be brewed as part of Troegs’ scratch series. The winning brew was called Triple Mango IPA and it quickly became one of their best beers in the Scratch series, at least according to this blog. It was so popular, it won a competition to determine which Scratch beer Troegs’ should re-brew. … Read entire article »

Do It Yourself: Beer Label Christmas Ornaments

Do It Yourself: Beer Label Christmas Ornaments

It’s the week of Christmas and, whether it’s because of holiday parties, general celebrations, or just because, you’ve been throwing back a few more beers than is typical. I’ve found a way to put all that good drinking to use…and it’s something you can do even after throwing back a full bottle of something higher than 15% ABV. Allow me to introduce: beer label Christmas ornaments! I shamelessly stole this idea after seeing Tierney of … Read entire article »

Tröegs Scratch #83 – ¿Impending Descent? Ale

Tröegs Scratch #83 – ¿Impending Descent? Ale

Tröegs has been experimenting with their Scratch Series for a few years now. Personally, I’ve been following them closely and have tasted nearly every one from #46 and above. Some can be a gamble, but that’s part of the fun when trying these small test batches. Occasionally, the Trogner brothers come out with something extraordinary. The first this happened for me was about a year ago when I first tasted Scratch #55 – Double IPA. Now, … Read entire article »

Tröegs Brewery Tasting Tour

Tröegs Brewery Tasting Tour

Most breweries offer tours of their facility – but some truly go above and beyond.  On Friday, October 26, The Beer Circle writers Kenton Martin and Garrett Miller, accompanied by friends and guest writers Alyssa Cook, Brian Reitz, and Kelsey Bailey, took a tour of Tröegs’ still-new Hershey, PA location – which represents a considerable amount of brewing capacity.  The Beer Circle has stopped by here on a previous beer tour (and even got to … Read entire article »

Beer Giveaway!

Beer Giveaway!

Update: We have a winner! Hoss Hewitt is victorious and has received his beer. We’ll leave the contest questions below if you want to fill it out anyway! Russ has a problem and our readers are about to benefit. To put it simply, he has too much beer.

AB InBev: Moving Forward Without The Past

AB InBev: Moving Forward Without The Past

While Hurricane Sandy does its worst to the Eastern US seaboard, I decided to have a coffee and read the internet (yes, the whole internet…who knows how long I’ll have power for, so I wanted to make sure I got it all). I came across a few articles detailing how Anheuser-Busch (AB) InBev came about. As a beer lover, albeit someone who was not old enough to comprehend the rise of such a monster company, … Read entire article »

Unlikely Pairings: Music

Unlikely Pairings: Music

You’ve probably seen plenty of recommended pairings with food when you read a beer description, but do we have to stop there? In this post, I begin a new column called “Unlikely Pairings.” This goes beyond the conventional food/beer pairing and inspects the less common couplings with you brew. Music almost always is around you when enjoying a drink; whether you’re in the bar, at a party, maybe even as background noise while you write tasting … Read entire article »

Great American Beer Festival 2012

Great American Beer Festival 2012

For the third consecutive year, I was fortunate enough to attend the Great American Beer Festival. I attended the Saturday evening session this year, and the medals had already been passed out by the time I got to the Convention Center. The highlight of my day was wearing a Tröegs shirt after they cleaned up with three gold medals (Dreamweaver Wheat, HopBack Amber Ale, and Sunshine Pilsner) and the 2012 Mid-Size Brewery of the Year. … Read entire article »

The Beer Circle Central PA Second Tour Wrap Up

The Beer Circle Central PA Second Tour Wrap Up

The Beer Circle Brewery Tour of Central Pennsylvania kicked off at 11AM at Al’s of Hampden / Pizza Boy Brewing just outside of Harrisburg. We would’ve loved to have started earlier, but Al’s opens at 11 and we had to have something resembling respect for our livers. We had the usual group of degenerates from The Beer Circle and were joined by a few other drinking buddies for a great day of food, friendship, and … Read entire article »
