Tröegs is a brand of microbrew beers and ales brewed in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The owner is John Trogner, and when he graduated from high school, he decided his life's ambition was going to be beer, but not just any old beer. Honest to goodness, hearty, rich, European style beer. He travelled through Ireland, the United Kingdom, Belgium, and Germany, all places known for their skill with the fermented hop, to learn the fine art of brewing.

Once John returned home to Harrisburg, he set out to make some of the finest beer in world. Tröegs offers four beers year-round: Seasonally, Tröegs offers special brews, usually higher in alcohol, and only available for a limited time.

Tröegs the beer is available for sale throughout Central Pennsylvania, Virginia, Delaware, New Jersey, and Northern Maryland. Tröegs is often sold by the cask, as opposed to the keg, because the company claims casks give the beer a better taste and texture. I am inclined to agree. It is more common to see beer in the cask in Europe than in the United States.

Tröegs (the brewery) offers tours and tastings every Saturday at 2pm.
