Enormous New Mural at Tröegs Celebrates Local Ingredients

From Tröegs:

HERSHEY, PA  – Tröegs Independent Brewing announces the unveiling of a colorful new mural, which adorns the east exterior wall of its brewing facility. The 120-foot-by-30-foot mural is a celebration of local ingredients the Hershey, PA, brewery uses in some of its most popular beers.

There’s the honey used in the legendary holiday ale Mad Elf. The Pennsylvania grain that forms the backbone of beers like Troegenator, Field Study and LolliHop. A bine of local hops that might end up in a small-batch Scratch beer. And Fruit Belt peaches and cherries that add a sweet-and-sour pop to a variety of wood-aged Splinter beers.

The mural was installed by Pennsylvania-based artist Jacintha Kruc, who earned a master’s in fine arts from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia. “I got into murals through scene painting for a community theater in Castle Rock, Colo,” she revealed. “I studied a lot of art history and museum science in undergrad. Then I wanted to make it to the East Coast. With the culture and support for the arts, this is where I knew I could thrive. I wanted to be pushed more.”  zzubreebym
