Tröegs / Fat Heads Scratch 51 (Fat Scratch Fever)

Formerly brewed at Tröegs Brewing Company
Hershey, Pennsylvania USA
9.6% Imperial IPA | 6 Ratings | Series Seasonal |
Tröegs and Fat Head’s Brewing Companies are hooking up for a collaboration brew on October 11th to give Fathead’s Brewer Matt Cole a chance to kick the tires and take our 25 barrel brewhouse for a spin around the block before decommissioning it and moving it to its new home in Cleveland, Ohio. Fatheads has made quite a name for themselves with their award-winning Headhunter IPA, so Matt asked if we could collaborate on a hoppy ale (no, it’s not Headhunter!) to christen his new brewhouse. Part of the Scratch Series, Fat Scratch Fever will debut in early November at the new Troegs Brewery in Hershey and at both Fatheads locations.
