Tröegs Independent Brewing has announced the 2023 release of Blizzard of Hops, its longest running seasonal IPA.

The winter IPA has been a mainstay of the Hershey, PA, brewery’s rotating seasonal series since its debut in 2014.

“This beer is a nod to hop growers around the world, thanking them for another successful harvest,” says Tröegs brewmaster and co-founding brother John Trogner.

With a bitter backbone, Blizzard of Hops has notes of spruce tips, pineapple and orange rind thanks to a combination of Centennial, Chinook and El Dorado hops, according to the brewery.

“In the winter, people’s taste buds deaden and they tend to eat richer and fattier foods,” explains Trogner. “In my mind, there’s a need for bitterness on the beer side to balance that out.”

Built on a foundation of pilsner malt and wheat, this winter brew clocks in at 6.4% ABV.

Blizzard of Hops is available on draft and in 12-oz bottles and cans everywhere Tröegs beer is sold.

This follows the release of Tröegs Independent Brewing Hopora IPA.
