As an independent microbrewery located in Harrisburg, PA, Tröegs has long been known for brewing some very high quality, tasty microbrews and this one is no exception! Tröegs’ newest single batch brew, Nugget Nectar Ale, will take hopheads to nirvana with a heady collection of Nugget, Warrior and Tomahawk hops. Starting with the same base ingredients of their flagship HopBack Amber Ale, Nugget Nectar intensifies the malt and hop flavors to create an explosive hop experience.
“We add hops at four different times during the boil,” explains John Trogner. “After the boil, the wort flows through 25 pounds of hops in our hopback; then it is dry-hopped in the fermentation tank with an additional 50 pounds of hops. While the hops are key to this recipe, the caramel malts give the beer a delicate sweetness that tempers the intense hop flavor.” Finishing at 7.5% abv, Nugget Nectar is an Imperial Amber Ale.
Come into Goodfellows and order one or two of these and we'll be glad to pour you this very drinkable brew and experience delicious Hoppyiness in glass for yourself.
