New Brew Name Game
Welcome to the New Brew Name Game!
A New Brew comes to tap next week - And with every new brew at Torg Brewery comes the New Brew Name Game! Our challenge, should you accept, is to follow the Brewster down the rabbit hole and guess the New Brew's Name through enigmatic clues issued each day.

Torg will reveal the New Brew's Name and the Winner of the Name Game Thursday, April 22nd.
Please submit your guesses through the online submission form at the bottom of this page.
Submit a guess as often as you like or wait until all the clues have been revealed before submitting your final guess. Torg will not select the winner until the contest ends. A winner will be randomly selected from all correct submissions at the end of the game. No purchase necessary to play the Name Game.
Guesses will remain secret until the conclusion of the Name Game.
Winner receives a New Howler filled with the New Brew - a refreshing summer lager styled after kellerbier (cellar beers) from Franconia, Bavaria. Aged on oak spirals, this brew finishes with complex notes of spice, fresh herbs, and toasted sweet breads.

New Brew Name Game Clue #1:
Travel back in time and place to a cool and bespeckled cavern stretched beneath three hills along the river Wörnitz, where once there lived a Troll, namesake of trade and treasure.
New Brew Name Game Clue #2:
Ancient grains, grandfather stalks of wheat, grew among the hilly countryside and from their bounty our Lager Troll brewed wondrous libations.
New Brew Name Game Clue #3:
Years rolled on... Our Troll slumbered in his cave while above him timbered buildings were erected and a stone wall wrapped around a city 'til he awoke to find his domains and sobriquet annexed by a plague of noisy neighbors.
New Brew Name Game Clue #4:
So a bargain was struck between Tueton and Troll. Troll-kind would not breach the city walls while serene and secret our Lager Troll’s den lay shrouded under castle’s moat and tower. If crisp new malts, fresh hops, and sturdy barrel found their way below, the city walls would never fall (and a barrel or two of hardy brew may enrich the fair knights' larder). And, don't you know, to this day the walls still stand.
New Brew Name Game Clue #5:
Each year this city celebrates the festival of Kinderzeche, but it is only known by a few that the gatekeeper’s daughter bore with her a cask of our Troll's lager. The city's children may have softened the heart of Colonel Sperreuth, but it was for want of another flagon of the brew that he spared the city walls.
New Brew Name Game Bonus Clue:
Our two-word beer name rhymes with “Wrinkle’s Grew” which I hope didn’t happen as you furrowed your brow to figure this one out. Torg's Kellerbier hits the taps on Friday!
