Tröegs Announces Return of Seasonal IPA, Blizzard of Hops

Tröegs Independent Brewing announces the release of Blizzard of Hops, its longest running seasonal IPA.

The popular winter IPA has been a mainstay of the Hershey, PA, brewery’s rotating seasonal series since its debut in 2014.

“This beer is a nod to hop growers around the world, thanking them for another successful harvest,” says Tröegs brewmaster and co-founding brother John Trogner.

Brimming with lively bitterness, Blizzard of Hops evokes notes of spruce tips, pineapple, and orange rind thanks to a combination of Centennial, Chinook, and El Dorado hops.

“In the winter, people’s taste buds deaden and they tend to eat richer and fattier foods,” explains Trogner. “In my mind, there’s a need for bitterness on the beer side to balance that out.”

Built on a foundation of pilsner malt and wheat, this cold-weather favorite clocks in at 6.4% ABV.

Blizzard of Hops is available on draft and in 12-oz bottles and cans everywhere Tröegs beer is sold.
