Tröegs Brewery Hosting Repeal of Prohibition Celebration

Join Tröegs Brewery and the Dauphin County Historical Society on Friday, April 11, for a special celebration of the 75th Anniversary of the Repeal of Prohibition. The event will be held at Tröegs Brewery from 7:30 to 11:30 p.m.

Nationally-known beer writer Lew Bryson will be on hand to discuss the Prohibition, tap the first keg, offer a ceremonial toast and sign copies of his Pennsylvania Breweries book.

"The current microbrewery explosion pales in comparison to the number of American breweries that existed before Prohibition," explains Chris Trogner. "It's important to remember these past milestones and not lose sight of their significance today."

That's enough about Prohibition, let's talk about the beer. We will be unveiling Scratch #11 in a firkin and on draft and serving our first-ever, Tröegs-approved cellared beer--Scratch #4 (barleywine). Along with the Tröegs year-round line-up we will feature two additional firkins and a few other surprises.

The evening will feature a light fare catered menu, along with period music by the Hoppin John Orchestra.

The ticket fee covers food and entertainment, and supports the Dauphin County Historical Society. Beer will be sold by the pint.

When: Friday April 11 6:30-11:30pm
Where: Tröegs Brewery
Special Firkins: Scratch 11 (Bitter!), HopBack, Pale Ale
Draft Beers: Pale Ale, DreamWeaver Wheat, HopBack, Rugged Trail, Troegenator, Scratch 4 and 11
