Troegs Independent Brewing, Harrisburg, PA

I stopped in at Troegs Independent Brewing in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania attending a work related event.  I was really impressed!  And I had the wonderful opportunity to sample a number of beers in one evening which was a delight.  And, the food they prepared and served for the event was also great.  I especially liked the chicken salad rolls and the java chip cupcakes!.  But, back to the beer.  Troegs HopBack Amber Ale is a great balance between hops and malt.  Drinking this you get some of both and it is really easy to drink.  Troegenator Double Bock is a rich brown caramelly beer that feels perfect for fall weather.  And, JavaHead Stout is a tasty coffee and chocolate tasting stout.  Their Perpetual IPA is a delight to drink.  Not too hoppy yet flavorful enough for most IPA lovers.  Although not as well-versed in Belgian beers, their Jovial is a delicious dubbel, pardon the comparison, but with some of Troegenator and some of JavaHead flavors swirling together.  Although Pilsners are often too “light” for me, their Sunshine Pilsner was tasty and a beer I’d drink again for sure.  The current seasonal, Hop Knife was the only beer I enjoyed a full serving of and it was well worth the full glass.  Not only that, I won a six-pack at the event I was attending and am looking forward to enjoying it with family this weekend.  I also had the opportunity to enjoy to “scratch” beers.  The Mango India Pale Ale was delicious and reminiscent of a Mango IPA I enjoyed in Hawaii earlier this month.  And, if a Harrisburg brewery can make me feel like I’m in Hawaii, that’s awesome.  Finally, I enjoyed the American Style Sour Cherry.  I like sour beers and I really like sour cherry.  This beer reminded me of a similar one at Jolly Pumpkin in Michigan last summer.  I was really tempted to bring a growler of this home with me but with a six-pack of Hop Knife and a fridge full of beer at home I passed on the opportunity.  So, if you’re ever in Harrisburg, PA or even near the area do yourself a favor and stop at Troegs.
