Tröegs Scratch 100


Brewed by Tröegs Brewing Company
Hershey, Pennsylvania USA
Style: American Pale Ale | Ratings: 3 | Alcohol: 6.3%
The first beer Tröegs ever brewed was a Pale Ale, so naturally it seems a fitting tribute to the series for Scratch #100 to revert to our roots. Just like that first batch of Pale Ale back in 1997, this latest offering is steeped in experimentation and exploration. So in a way, we’ve gone full circle; back to our origins, but with the same sense of adventure that that has always guided us. For the second Scratch Beer in our line of single hop Pale Ales using experimental hops, we filled our new Hop Gun with over 40lbs. of El Dorado hops. A BrauKon exclusive, the Hop Gun is a device that enables us to extract precious oils directly from pelletized hops. John Trogner is quite enthusiastic about the results we’ve gotten from the Hop Gun. “So far, it has proved to be the most efficient way to infuse hop oils into our beers,” he said. The result is a Pale Ale displaying a blast of fruitiness akin to a hoppy peach with a twist of citrus.
