Tröegs Scratch 81


Formerly brewed at Tröegs Brewing Company
Hershey, Pennsylvania USA
Style: Dortmunder/Helles | Ratings: 3 | Series Seasonal | Alcohol: 4.9%
To compete with the more fashionable Bohemian pilsners of the day, the Export Lager style originated in Dortmund, Germany. Often referred to as “Dortmunder Lager,” the style gained popularity in the late 19th Century among German industrial laborers, making it a true working man’s beer. In keeping with the tradition, Scratch #81 harkens back to one of the first Tröegs beers ever produced - Bavarian Lager. This slightly dry, pale golden lager has subtle hop bitterness and a moderately low ABV, making it a perfect session beer… or for that matter, a suitable shift beer after a hard day’s work. Scratch #81 is available on draft only.
