Year of Beer Paintings – Day 147

The daily beer painting is of LaGrave Triple Golden Ale by Tröegs Brewing Company, a Belgian triple that is bottle-conditioned in a corked bottle!  This is the first product from a new corking machine Tröegs recently acquired.  I love popping the top of a fancy beer that has a caged cork!  It sounds like a celebration every time I hear the easily recognizable POP!  The beer was excellent, but I wish I could have cellared it for about a year, but then it would not have made it into the Year of Beer series.  Fruity and sweet, with Belgian yeast notes, this beer is very much a triple and not a Saison.  I tasted pineapple and a bready yeast flavor.

Tröegs makes great beer, and I’m glad I discovered this brewery through this project.  The first bottle of Tröegs beer I tasted was the Mad Elf that arrived in my first ever beer mail (thanks Rich)!  I was hooked after the first sip!  I have also enjoyed and painted Nugget Nectar and Tröegenator!  Will Tröegs bottle Mad Elf with the new corking machine?  A tall boy can would also be very cool like the Tröegenator.

Way to be Tröegs!  I wish I were there in Hershey sampling all the particularly nice offerings available in PA!  I hope your brewery continues to expand with awesome examples of beer like LaGrave!

You can purchase this painting, or a limited-edition print at my Etsy shop.
