Nimble Giant Returns Monday June 10th, 2024

As you might have seen from our Instagram account Nimble Giant will be making its awaited return on Monday, June 10th, 2024. This yearly beer by Troegs Independent Brewing is one of their most sought after and beloved beers of the year (alongside Nugget Nectar and Mad Elf). This is a bold, beautiful, strong, delicious DIPA (Double IPA), clocking in at 9.0% and knocking your socks off with how smooth, easy drinking, and wonderful it is. You can easily plow through an entire case without noticing (as Drew of Knights of Nostalgia and I can attest from Wednesday night). (You can see us drinking our Nimble Giant case during our Acolyte episode reviews – found here: Consuming Brews and Media – The Acolyte Episode 1 Review).  (And definitely check out this YouTube short and reel of YORD nonsense.)

Tröegs Independent Brewing is set to release its fan-favorite double IPA, Nimble Giant on Monday (June 10th, 2024). One of the independent brewery’s most beloved beers, Nimble Giant is a limited annual release that rivals the excitement generated by its iconic holiday ale, Mad Elf.

Nimble Giant began as part of Tröegs’ small-batch Scratch Series, originally experimenting with Mosaic hops. After half a dozen test batches, the Tröegs brewing team discovered a perfect hop combination: Mosaic, Simcoe, and Azacca.

“We loved our earliest trials with Mosaic,” says John Trogner, Tröegs co-founder and brewmaster. “When we started dry-hopping with Mosaic and Simcoe together, we knew we had something special. Fans would stop me on the street and rave about the Scratch batches.”

With an ABV of 9%, Nimble Giant features notes of tropical fruit, pine sap, and honeysuckle. Backed by pilsner and Vienna malts, this deep orange-hued double IPA achieves a perfect balance between malt and hops.

Nimble Giant scores an ‘Outstanding’ on BeerAdvocate and consistently ranks in the top ten trending beers on Untappd upon its release.

Nimble Giant is available on draft and in 16-oz. cans across the brewery’s entire distribution footprint. Also look for it on draft at the Troegs Brewery, as well as in select restaurants, pubs, and other locations. You can also order sixtels from the General Store at Troegs Brewery.

Beer drinkers can find Nimble Giant and other Tröegs beers near them using the Tröegs Brew Finder.

Nimble Giant cracked open and ready to be enjoyed while we record our Acolyte Episode reviews.
