Tröegs Nugget Nectar

Brace yourself beer fans, the legendary Nugget Nectar is back on the scene! This highly-addictive Imperial Amber Ale is one of the most talked about brews of the year. While we speak there are probably cars full of crazy beer geeks following our delivery trucks around the state; anxious for their very first sip of this heavenly liquid. People just can’t seem to get enough of it, and we can’t say we blame them!

Packed with tons of sweet malt and a combination of Nugget, Warrior, Tomahawk, Simcoe and Palisade hops, Nugget Nectar promises an attack of the senses. The incredible aroma of candied grapefruit, honey, pine resin and sweet caramel will almost force the glass of beautiful orange liquid to your lips. On the palate you’ll find….well, hoppy beer heaven to say the least…..and the perfect balance of sticky pine, sweet malt, honey and citrus. Full-bodied and intense with 93 IBUs and 7.5% abv, Nugget Nectar will give your body a serious jolt and serve as the ultimate cure to those winter-time blues!

Rated 100 points on Rate Beer and 98 points on Beer Advocate!!

Diner beware! The extreme hoppiness in this brew will definitely overpower any mild-mannered cuisine. Best bets are sinfully sweet desserts like Carrot Cake or Creme Brulee or seriously sharp cheeses like aged cheddar, aged gouda or intense blue cheeses. If you’re looking to enjoy your Nugget Nectar with the main meal, make sure it’s something full-flavored, like smoked or grilled meats. The sweet caramelization and smokey flavors are a match made in heaven with all those sticky, sweet, lip-smaking hops! Time to break out the grill and do some winter-time BBQ’in!

Nugget Nectar is now available in 6-packs! 22oz bottles and draft are coming soon….please stay tuned for release dates!
