Troeg’s (Hershey, PA) has a whole brewing system dedicated to the Scratch Beer Series. Scratches are typically one-off experiments, in draft and/or bottles. #117 arrives today. A helles bock.
Essentially, the Helles Bock is a Helles Lager brewed to bock strength. While as strong as a traditional bock in terms of alcohol content, a Helles is lighter in color and has a more substantial hop presence. Think of it as Troegenator’s feisty little brother. Availability: draft and growler fills only.
