Troegs Releases Cultivator Helles Bock


Hershey, PA — Our spring seasonal, Cultivator Helles Bock, is back.

Emerging from springtime’s fertile ground, Cultivator celebrates the start of hop-growing season as sprawling fields of hop rhizomes climb and tether to hop bines. This spring bock delivers hints of toasted grains, fresh baked bread, and delicate floral hops.

“The Hop Cycle guides our seasonal brewing schedule, and Cultivator is the starting point,” said Tröegs co-founder Chris Trogner. “It represents the newness and rebirth of springtime in Pennsylvania.”

Cultivator incorporates floor-malted Bohemian pilsner malt, Hersbrucker and Magnum hops, and Tröegs house lager yeast to elicit notes of wildflowers, honey, and spring pollen. At 6.9% ABV and 25 IBU, this pale gold lager pairs well with steamed shellfish, fried chicken, and goat cheese.

Part of our Hop Cycle series, Cultivator is available from February to April in 12-ounce bottles and cans and on draught in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Washington, D.C.
