SoDel Concepts has a long relationship with Tröegs. “In the past, we helped them with menu planning for their tasting room, and their experts helped us get our brewpubs off the ground,” said Matt Patton, the director of SoDel Concepts’ beer program. “We’re looking forward to producing more beers with our friends.”

“[Summer Lager is] a crisp, clean and easy-drinking beer,” said Jimmy Valm, who oversees brewing operations at Thompson Island and its new sibling, Ocean View Brewing Company in Ocean View.

“The beer was krausened and dry-hopped with Citra and Saaz for hints of citrus and flowering herbs,” Valm said.

Summer Lager is available in drafts and cans at SoDel Concepts restaurants. It quickly sold out in Tröegs’ Hershey taproom.
