Troegs–Trade Our Cymbals for Splinter Black

imageLooks like a set of cymbals belonging to Chris & John Trogner’s grandfather were “lost” at the brewery on 1/28…This from Chris & John

A set of hi-hat cymbals was “borrowed” from Troegs Brewery sometime over the weekend of January 28. These cymbals belonged to our grandfather have sentimental value far greater than their monetary value. We will ask no questions upon their return and will offer the returnee two bottles of SPLINTER BLACK and a healthy dose of good karma. Thanks for your help.
Cheers - Chris & John Trogner

Troegs Scratch # 56 Single Hop Simcoe–Oops

TroegsScratchLooks like a bit of an oops @ Troegs has helped release their first Single-Hop series beer…Simcoe:  Details from Troegs:

OG: 14.2
ABV: 6.4%
IBUs: 62
Malt: Pils, Munich, Crystal
Hops: Simcoe
Yeast: House Ale Yeast
Codename: SHPA1 (Single Hop Pale Ale 1)

Here’s another Scratch test batch designed to delight our customers. Due to a minor flaw in a brewing program, we lost some of the mash when it was transferred to the brew kettle. A quick-thinking brewer modified the hop-load and created our first-ever single hopped beer.

Bronze in color with a dry finish, the lead flavor is intense grapefruit and a fruity backbone derived from Simcoe hops.

Please enjoy our mistake, and rest assured the modifications have been completed so it doesn’t happen again.
