The Weekly Buzz | July 20 – 26
I’ve just arrived at the point where I have decided to neglect my real, bills-paying job in order to do a little work for my Internet beer-writing gig. Typing this intro on my phone is a real time-saver! I don’t know why I never thought of this before. The sign on the door that reads “No Personal Cell Phones in Work Area” doesn’t bother me either. Everyone here knows that The Weekly Buzz is more important than operating this very complex cement plant control room. If only they’d let me drink on the job…
I may be biased, but PA is the best beer state!
Earth is the only planet with beer! Protect it!

Did you see this exhibit?
Our annual Art of Tröegs gallery opening is taking on a life of its own. Nearly two dozen contest winners, runners-up and crowd favorites joined us in the Splinter Cellar this time around, along with a growing community of local farmers, writers, co-workers, friends, family and fans. Tough to pick a highlight. Was it Jim Howard and Bob Ressel’s grand prize-winning 3-D rendition of the Splinter Cellar? Amy Jo Gregory’s Tröegs-themed tower cake? Shane Speal’s cigar-box guitar serenade? Maybe it’s as simple as this: toasting a roomful of our favorite people with a chalice of Dear Peter, a wild ale made with nectarines and grains from right here in Pennsylvania. That’s our #ArtofTroegs.
Got dinner plans?
American brewers ain’t got nothin’ on these beards!
Stop by our tap room to try Benedictus, our ancient Monastic Celia-style beer, inspired by our brewer Travis Rupp's travels to the Monastero Di San Benedetto in Monte, Italy. This monastery was destroyed in the earthquake of 2016, but they are rebuilding! To make a donation, visit en.nursia.org/donations.
Someone got a new toy!
