Troegs Nugget Nectar 2012 Update–SEPA-Yes, eBay-Yes, PA-Yes, NEPA-NO

I get so many questions this time of year regarding the whereabouts of Troegs Nugget Nectar, I thought I’d provide an update.  Before anyone thinks differently, I DO want to thank John, Chris, Ed & everyone @ Troegs for how they handled the Nugget Nectar 2012 release.  I was really pleased to see all of the information they put out on Facebook and their website and I think that was very helpful this year.

Unfortunately, after Nugget Nectar left the brewery it’s become somewhat of a game of Where’s Waldo.  Let me preface this by saying that it’s a rapidly changing situation.  By the time you read this, things probably have change already…but what I can tell you:

Nugget Nectar was officially released at the brewery on Tuesday 2/21, and while it somehow found it’s way into Southeastern PA on Friday 2/17, most official releases occurred on 2/21.  I can confirm that Nugget Nectar bottles & kegs are available to the public in most of Southeastern PA, in all of the Westy’s accounts out toward State College, as far north as Massachusetts & NY.  I’m frustrated to also confirm it is not only being sold on eBay but someone is actually selling an entire case!

I’m equally frustrated to report that Northeastern PA has yet to see a drop.  While I expect this will change, I will be very curious to hear the explanation for how an account just over 1-hour away from Troegs is behind Philly, NY and Massachusetts to have Nugget Nectar actually hit the shelves.

I know Nugget Nectar for PA left the brewery days ago…so OK NEPA….Where’s Waldo?
