Troegs Brewing to Release Second Cut
Troegs Independent Brewing is set to release Second Cut – a bigger version of First Cut – this Spring (Spring 2024).
Much like they’ve made “double” versions of their other beers – Double Nugget Nectar (Nugget Nectar), Double Blizzard (Blizzard of Hops), Triple Nator (Troegenator), and most recently Double Perpetual and Triple Perpetual (Perpetual IPA) – they are making a ‘double’ version of First Cut.
First Cut represents the first cuttings of the hops as the hops begin to grow, a pruning to let them be able to create big and strong vines.
Where First Cut is typically a late February – March release, Second Cut will likely be end of March to middle of April for its release. The beer will be a double IPA brewed with mango as well as Comet and Simcoe hops and it will clock in at around 9.5% ABV. It will be released at the brewery in 16 oz pounder cans, both as singles and as four packs. There is possibility of distribution, but it is doubtful.
The First Cut is a fan favorite and has a bit of a ‘cult following’ at the brewery. It is a 6.2% IPA – American style, with 45 IBU. Its typically released late February to early March each year at the brewery in Hershey. It has over 52,000 ratings on Untappd with a global average rating of 3.79 (as of 10.13.23). The Untappd description reads: Each spring, hop growers dust off their pruning shears and trim the first shoots, bolstering the bines for a rich growing season. First Cut – a mouthful of silky Simcoe and a touch of mango – is a nod to this ritual, without which the world would be a less hoppy place.

We are working on a massive project here at The Beer Thrillers. We are creating a map of all of the breweries across the United States. State by state we are adding maps of all of the different states with every brewery in each state. (We will eventually get to the US Territories, as well as the Canadian Provinces, and possibly more countries; as well as doing some fun maps like a map of all the breweries we’ve been to, and other fun maps.) You can find the brewery maps here:
We are also working on a project of creating printable and downloadable PDFs and resources to be able to check and keep track of all of the breweries you’ve been to. So stay tuned for that project once we are finished with the Brewery Maps of the US States.
