Troegs Brewing Releases Perpetual Darkness

What if? Thats a question that gets asked a lot around Troegs Brewery in Hershey, PA. Answering these What If questions is how many of your favorite beers from the brewery have been made. Perpetual Darkness is no different.

Releasing today – December 7th, 2023 – Perpetual Darkness makes its return. An American style Barleywine, its one of the better barleywines in the Central PA area.

As per their Facebook announcement of it:

What if? It’s a question we often ask around here. What if Perpetual were a sort of dirty blonde barleywine? What if we toned down the bitterness but turned up the sticky citrus notes? Enter Perpetual Darkness, a hoppy candy bar gone wild with a silky body and an herbal, resiny finish. We taste: overripe grapefruit, grassy herbs, candied orange. Only available here at the brewery this Thursday in 16-oz cans. #Troegs #PerpetualDarkness #Barleywine

Personally this is an absolutely fantastic Barleywine, and a great beer all around. I always look forward to its release and try and stock up on it when it comes out. Not enough breweries do barleywines, and its one of my absolute favorite styles.
