Brewed by Tröegs Brewing Company
For our most recent Scratch offering, we let our inventive nature shine. An ambitious undertaking by any stretch of the imagination, Scratch #88 served as the “guinea pig” for John Trogner’s latest experiment: The Infüz-O-Matic 5000, an apparatus poised to alter the landscape of our Scratch Beer series forever. By design, we constructed this prototype to extract the essence of a variety of ingredients and infuse bold flavors directly into our beer. For Scratch #88, we circulated the Chocolate Stout in The Infüz-O-Matic 5000 for more than 150 hours through four circulation units filled with more than 100lbs. of cocoa nibs, 50lbs. of cocoa powder, thirty vanilla beans, and copious amounts of Cascade hops. Released just in time for Valentine’s Day, Scratch #88 will entice you and your sweetheart to visit our Tasting Room and share this delectable treat. Come taste for yourself and savor the flavor!
