Scratch beer news release from Tröegs

News release from Tröegs...

Scratch Beer Update: #11-2008 Details and #10-2008 Waiting in the Wings

Keep on your toes; we are switching the release order of the next two Scratch Beers.

Next up, we present Scratch Beer #11-2008, a Bitter. We used to brew a little number called Tröegs ESB. Even though this beer was retired almost six years ago, we still get numerous Tröegs old-schoolers begging for its return.

Well hang onto your boot straps because Scratch #11 is about as close as we can get to the original ESB without firing up the old brew kettle. The Scratch #11 recipe originates from Chris' stint at England's University of Sunderland brewing program. After returning to Colorado the brothers drew on Chris' experience and brewed pilot batches tweaking that recipe. The ESB production recipe has direct bloodlines to these pilot batches.

So to all you ESB freaks (Martha) out there--sit back, relax and enjoy. Scratch #11-2008 was made just for you. And to answer the ever-asked question: No, we won't be making ESB again. Here are ingredient details:

Original Gravity - 13 Plato
ABV - 4.9%
IBUs - 48
Malts - Dark Crystal, Roasted Barley, Extra Special Malt
Hops - East Kent Golding, Williamette, Chinook
Yeast - Thames Valley ale yeast

Scratch #10-2008 is waiting in the wings and is ready to go as soon as we move some Scratch #11 out the door. We expect to start selling #10 in late April.

5th Annual Harrisburg Brewers Fest - Tröegs

News release from Tröegs

The 5th Annual Harrisburg Brewers Fest will be held on Saturday, June 21 on Locust and Third Streets in downtown Harrisburg. This year's festival will feature two afternoon sessions--12-3:30 p.m. and 5-8:30 p.m.--and approximately 45 breweries. This event is co-presented by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Central Pennsylvania and Tröegs Brewery. All proceeds from the event benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Tickets are now on sale. They can be ordered online at the Harrisburg Brewers Fest Web site (www.harrisburgbrewersfest.com), via telephone at 717-671-4000, or at Tröegs Brewery. Tickets will begin shipping in mid-May. We recommend that you buy tickets in advance since last year's event was a complete sellout.

Advance tickets for the Harrisburg Brewer's Fest are $35. Tickets the day of the event (if available) will be $40. Designated Driver tickets are available for $5 to either session. There is a VIP session that includes a 90-minute private session and entrance to the second session. VIP tickets are $95. The ticket price is tax-deductible, and includes a souvenir sample glass, unlimited samples from participating brewers and live entertainment. Regular and group tickets are also available by contacting CFF at 717-671-4000.
