Tröegs Independent Brewing invites you to celebrate all things hoppy at the 2nd Annual Harvest Hopfest to be held this weekend. The festivities will include three new limited beers inspired by the brewery’s hop selection trips to the Pacific Northwest, as well as the return of the HopDash 5k to the brewery in Hershey, PA. They’ll also feature daily IPA firkin tappings and live music in our Beer Garden including performances from Palm City Ramblers, Rivers, and more.
Tröegs Independent Brewing holds a special place in my heart. I had enjoyed trying new beers since I studied abroad in Germany around the turn of the century, but a visit to the Tröegs production brewery in Hershey, Pennsylvania is at the epicenter of my ever-blossoming beer geekery. In the five years since that visit, I’ve enjoyed watching their beer lineup change and evolve. With roots in Tröegs’ Scratch program and a new home in the Hop Cycle Seasonal lineup, Hop Knife Harvest Ale is a beer that I’ve been enjoying since its first wide release.
Tröegs Independent Brewing has been a staple of Pennsylvania’s craft beer scene for over 20 years, and last week they got even bigger. Eight new 1,000-barrel fermenters were installed at the Hershey, PA brewery. Once online, these will greatly increase the brewery’s production capacity. By moving the flagship and more popular seasonal beers into these larger fermentation vessels, smaller tanks will now be freed up for small batch offerings.
Another week with of festive Beerstagrams! I added a few others into the mix this week too, I promise! I just am having a hard time resisting the urge to keep making Beerstagram feel festive but that’s okay, it’s good to be festive! Anyhow, there are a lot of pretty photos in the feed this week, it was hard to narrow them down to this selection! Cheers!
