Nimble Giant Returns Today (June 14th, 2022)

Its Nimble Giant time!

The Giant Awakens

Its that time again, everyone’s favorite time in the Central Pennsylvania area! The time when the giant from Hershey awakens. You know the one I mean, the nimblest of giants, the fastest of the giants, the swiftest of the giants…. the one and only NIMBLE GIANT by Troegs Independent Craft Brewing from Hershey, Pennsylvania.

Nimble Giant

The Nimble Giant releases today – June 14th, 2022, for its yearly run. Troegs Independent Craft Brewing’s website has the gist and information on the beer for you here: Nimble Giant Release (Troegs).

From their site:

“What makes Nimble so Giant? For us, it boils down to a simple formula: ingredients + people + process. It starts in the hop fields, with Simcoe’s notes of creamsicle and mango, Mosaic’s honeysuckle and grapefruit, and Azacca’s pineapple. Back at the brewery, our Scratch team came up with an innovative hopping technique – which we dubbed the Hop Cyclone – to circulate those hop oils from the top to the bottom of our tanks, not missing an ounce of beer. We also found the small window during fermentation to optimize our dry-hopping. In the end is the beautifully bold Nimble Giant, ripe with notes of grapefruit, pineapple and honeysuckle.”

Their release schedule follows:

  • Week of June 10: Most of PA

Nimble Giant Case Covering

Getting to live so close to Hershey and Troegs Brewing, has let me get to taste each of the scratch variants and then the finished product. I still remember getting hit HARD by the last scratch before its initial release, having been there after work, having two myself, and then running into my friend’s dad with a friend, and all of us buying rounds and not even realizing just how high the ABV was for its smoothness. (Needless to say the three of us got an Uber and went home that night.)

As the years go by, I think now that this is my favorite of the yearly or regular Troegs Brewing offerings. More than even Nugget Nectar and Mad Elf. Its probably their best, juiciest, smoothest, IPA; whereas say Perpetual IPA is the prototypical old school West Coast IPA. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy all of their year long releases (Perpetual, Troegenator, etc.) and their seasonal releases (Perpetual Haze, Impending Descent, Mad Elf, Nugget Nectar, Naked Elf, etc.); but this is just far and away my favorite now.

Hopefully you’ll be able to get out and enjoy it too. You can use Troegs’ website (link above) for their “brew finder” and that should help you locate the closest Nimble Giant to you.

Enjoy and cheers!
