Troegs Announces New Splinter Series Releases

Troegs Announces New Splinter Series ReleasesFrom Troegs:

Some call them trophies or grails or white whales. We call them Splinter beers.

On Thursday, February 22, Nebulous joins our family of wood-aged beers as part of our Splinter Series beers!

Nebulous starts with our triple golden ale LaGrave. Some goes into wine barrels, some goes into virgin oak, and some goes into foeders teeming with Brettanomyces. The barrels ferment for months, sometimes years. As long as it takes. The wild yeast gives life to notes of honeysuckle, pear and white peach, while the oak layers in a tinge of vanilla. Bottle-conditioning puts a thousand fine points on it.

Nebulous is available in 12.7oz. cork & cage bottles exclusively at the brewery in our General Store (take-out) and Tasting Room (on-premise consumption).

Splinter on the horizon

Coming March 8... Farmette

A spell on oak with our house culture – a wayward mix of microflora we’ve been cultivating since our very first foray into wild fermentation – transformed this saison into something altogether unexpected. The wood tempers the traditional notes of clove and pepper, making way for layers of woodsy earthiness and lemon tang.

Coming March 22... Blackberry Tizzy

One day, we muddled some fresh blackberries with brown sugar, lemon juice and bourbon. "Mmm," we thought. "This should be a beer." Blackberry Tizzy is that spirited daydream come true. Sour fermentation tempers the juicy blackberries with a touch of tartness, and a spell in bourbon barrels delivers ripples of oak and toasted coconut.
Both Farmette and Blackberry Tizzy will be available in 12.7oz. cork & cage bottles exclusively at the brewery in our General Store (take-out) and Tasting Room (on-premise consumption).
