Beer God's Notes

I drove to PA and got Troegs Nugget Nectar before it’s released in NY. And I end up drinking it on Buffalo’s release day.

This beer is one of my all-time favorites.  It was one of the first hoppy beers I ever tried and it holds a special place in my heart.  I’m fortunate to be able to try this really fresh ever January/February when we get it locally.  Nugget Nectar has been in my top five favorite beers to drink since the moment I had my first.  #YouNeverForgetYourFirstNectar

This year, they did switch all of their branding and I was a little worried about them switching away from the NN logo I liked.  But I actually like the new logo more!  Such beautiful work by the Troegs designer team.

It’s impossible to forget your first squeeze. Once a year, as the newest humulus lupulus harvest arrives at Tröegs, we blend these super-fresh hops into an Imperial Amber Ale. Excessively dry-hopped, Nugget Nectar is an explosion of pine, resin and mango.
