Troegs Brewing Releasing Night Gazer Stout

This Thursday – November 30th, 2023 – Troegs Independent Brewing is releasing Night Gazer Stout at their Hershey brewery. This will be a brewery exclusive. A potentially one – off beer similar to Cyclops Teardrops (insofar as production).

Troegs Independent Brewing usually follows a pattern for their releases. Scratch Series beers and possible one – off production releases occur on Thursdays. Big beers, seasonals, or the franchise standards (Blizzard of Hops, Double Blizzard, Hop Cyclone, Nugget Nectar, Mad Elf, Nimble Giant, etc.) are released on Mondays.

Night Gazer Stout will be available only in house at the Troegs Brewery on Hersheypark Drive (Hershey, PA). It will be available on draft as well as in 16 oz pounder cans – (four packs, cases, and singles in the General Store fridge). You can get crowler and growler fills as well.

Rumor mill is that Troegs might be seeing how this stout does and putting this out onto the distribution market going forward and scaling Grand Cacao back and keeping that as an in – house beer only. (No official word has been said yet.)

Upcoming Schedule

From here to the end of the year Troegs Independent Brewing has some decently big heavy releases coming out. Nugget Nectar is looking to be making its yearly return – this year soon after Christmas – very soon after Christmas – with a tentative date being 12.26 (the very day after Christmas). Also upcoming is a Black Cherry Limeade, another Lager scratch, and potentially Peach Orangeade (returning).

So stay tuned for these future releases.

I know I can’t wait to get back from AC (Atlantic City) and get to try the stout, as well as the new Scratch 505 Double IPA (DIPA).
