Tröegs Independent Brewing announces the launch of its annual Nugget Nectar “First Squeeze” collaboration with local artists. To celebrate the beer’s release, Tröegs hand-picked 14 of its favorite artists – including Philadelphia’s Henry Hablak, Lancaster’s Kayla Bryer, and New York’s Paige Vickers – to tell the story of Nugget Nectar through their eyes.
Once a year, as the new hop harvest arrives at Tröegs, we blend super-fresh Nugget, Palisade and Simcoe hops into Nugget Nectar Imperial Amber Ale. Excessively dry-hopped, Nugget Nectar is an explosion of pine, resin and mango.

Nugget Nectar will be available on draft and in 6-packs of 12-ounce cans and bottles everywhere Tröegs beer is sold. The release schedule (subject to change) for Nugget Nectar is as follows:
- 1/7/19 – PA & OH
- 1/14/19 – MD, DE, NJ
- 1/21/19 – VA, DC, NY
- 1/28/19 – NC, MA, CT
To coincide with its release, Tröegs will host dozens of First Squeeze events, giving fans the opportunity to drink Nugget Nectar and obtain free art prints from all 14 artists. Some events will feature live poster signings by the artists as well as gravity-fed firkins and Nitro Nugget (a version of Nugget Nectar dispensed via nitrogen). “Carbonating with nitrogen makes Nugget incredibly smooth and creamy,” says John Trogner. “We drop Zeus and Warrior from the dry-hop bill and replace them with Nugget and Simcoe to amplify the pine and mango notes – making it a creamsicle dream.”
