One of my favorite beers is coming to town again on January 6th. A bit earlier this year, but who cares? The liquid gold has returned. Here's some stats for those who care about them:
Tröegs Nugget Nectar Alcohol by Volume: 7.5%
Hop Bitterness (IBU’s): 93ish
Color (SRM): Straw / Orange
Availability: Seasonal (February-March)
Malts: Pilsner, Vienna, Munich
Hops: Nugget, Warrior, Tomahawk, Simcoe, Palisade
HopBack Hops: Nugget
via Troegs Brewing
Honestly, the line the gets me can't be better said than DrinkingCraft:
With a heady collection of American hops, Nugget Nectar will rekindle your romance with the intense pucker your palate has come to expect from this bold Imperial Amber Ale.
Usually, you can grab a pint of this brew in my neighborhood at Sunswick 35/35. I'll cover them another day, but bottom line-- this place has one of the largest collection of drafts and rotates weekly. You can be sure Nugget Nectar will be making it here at some point.
What are some of your favorite drinks (alcoholic or not) during these brisk wintery months?
