Description: Our Pilsner is assertively hopped with Hallertau and Tettnanger noble hops and has a cracker-like malt backbone that finishes crisp and dry coming in at 4.8% ABV. We named this beer in honor of the Trauger family of Bucks County whose descendants came to America in 1747 and were among some of the earliest German immigrants to the area. In 1756, Johann Christian and Ludwig Wilhelm Trauger purchased two adjoining farmsteads in Nockamixon Township and have been a part of the fabric of this county, state, and country ever since. Ironically enough, the Trauger family’s German heritage predates the introduction and widespread popularity of the Pilsner style, but nonetheless, this beer is brewed and named in their honor.

  1. I grew up in the coal and coke village of Trauger which is 8 miles from Latrobe, PA and 40 miles east of Pittsburgh. It has about 300 residents but about 1,000 residents in 1900. Where can I get Trauger Pilsner Beer in the Pittsburgh region?
