Wanna Hang Out With The Guys Who Make Nugget Nectar?

troegs-nugget-nectarOf course you do, right? I mean, who wouldn’t want to? Nugget Nectar is one of those cultish beers that super-nerds get all jazzed over, and on Wednesday, February 1, the guys who make it–Chris and John Trogner of Troegs–and author Josh Bernstein will be at Standard Tap for a small, intimate gathering that is all about the Nugget Nectar.

Here’s the catch, though. This event is going to be small. It’s limited to 40 seats. So if you’re thinking that this is exactly the kind of thing you want to do on a Wednesday night, then you should probably make your reservations now.

But before you do that…

Some details

Nugget Nectar, Free Art And Hot Dogs At Garage North

GarageHawk

On Thursday, Garage North (the one at 100 East Girard Avenue) is throwing a party with Troegs and a bunch of artists to celebrate that very special beer-drinkers holiday: First Squeeze.

So what is First Squeeze, you ask? It’s the first tapping of the year’s supply of Troegs Nugget Nectar–their once-a-year dry hopped Imperial Amber over which beer nerds go all swoony. This time around, they asked eight artists to make Nugget Nectar-inspired works to celebrate the big day. And at the event, they’re going to be offering free prints (while supplies last) and signings by the artists.

Here in Philly, that means Hawk Krall (friend of Foobooz, beer and hot dog enthusiast, and all-around swell guy) hanging out at Garage, showing off his work (you can see him holding it right there) and signing prints for people.

While everyone else seems to be diving head-first into fall menus and brews, Victory Brewing Company  is announcing exciting news for Summer of 2015. Victory is adding a new canning line in their Parkesburg facility and has announced its aluminum debut. The first beer coming down the canning line will be the quaffable Summer Love Ale.

Victory is just the latest local brewery to get in on the canned beer craze. Sly Fox has been canning its beers for year and Troegs has recently added cans to its lineups. In fact, the Hershey based brewery is going to be putting its hugely popular Nugget Nectar in 12-ounce cans next year.
