Today, in Part IV on Troegs Independent Brewing, Co-Founders Chris and John Trogner tell us about their Splinter Series beer and the importance of aging beer in massive oak barrels called foeders. Chris Trogner explains.

Splinter Bronze is a spectacular Belgian Dubbel aged in the very foeders that Chris just referenced. The role that each of these oak barrels plays in creating fascinating and complex beers for Troegs’ Splinter Series is detailed here by John Trogner.

While most of the Splinter Series beers are sours and wild ales infused with fruit, the Splinter Series also currently features a bourbon barrel-aged stout, double bock and barleywine.
Make a visit to the Troegs brewery in Hershey a must “thing-to-do”. The space is inviting, interesting and impressive. And their beers are some of the best in America!
