BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tröegs Brewing Company
Pennsylvania, United States
troegs.com

Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.10%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
The term “Triple” was popularized by Trappist brewery Westmalle to describe its brawniest of strong pale ales. Well, we assure you that this is indeed one brawny Triple! Brewed with 450lbs. of local PA honey and Westmalle yeast, our latest Scratch Belgian Style Triple is subtly sweet and quite earthy. But the star of the show is undoubtedly the honey, which gives the body a robust and almost chewy texture. The honey also bolsters the alcohol content without coming across as too warm or boozy. But take heed of the lofty 8.1% ABV. Triples are known to be stealthy brews, and Scratch #82 is no exception. You have been duly warned!
