Nugget Nectar is now available in Pittsburgh. Each year, Troegs Brewing celebrates the release of their Nugget Nectar beer by collaborating with local artists for unique Nugget Nectar First Squeeze Prints. While Troegs is not brewed in Pittsburgh, the Troegs HQ is in Harrisburg; the brewery has collaborated with Pittsburgh artists for the Nugget Nectar release.

This year, Troegs has asked Pittsburgh artist Ed Kuehn to create a First Squeeze poster to celebrate the tapping of Nugget Nectar. You can see the other 2019 posters that Troegs commissioned here.
