Join us on Friday, April 27 for the release of Scratch #63 – Danny’s IPA.

This Black IPA was brewed as a tribute to Danny Glover, a Troegs Brewery family member who passed away in late January.

Cases, drafts and growler fills available starting at 11 a.m.

Firkin tapping at 3 p.m.

$10 from every case of Scratch #63 sold will go directly to the Gift of Life Donor Program in Danny’s name.

On January 31, 2012 Tröegs Brewery lost a family member.

Danny Glover didn’t work for Tröegs very long, but his death nine days after a car accident on an icy stretch of the Pennsylvania Turnpike shook the brewery to the core. Our brewery family is relatively young and to think that a 24 year-old guy who leaves in a car one morning (ironically to attend a funeral) could be gone a week later is unbelievable.

Troegs Filling Some Oak Barrels (Splinter?)


I know this may seem a little like Tweeting when someone sneezes, but today we have a photo courtesy of Troegs showing some oak barrels being filled….and while this is speculation on my part, I’m hoping we’re seeing the beginning of an upcoming Splinter Series release.  It’s been a while and there have been lots of rumors as to what’s next, and while this may not be the next Splinter release, hopefully one is on the way.
