Get in on the art

We love the Art of Tröegs contest. It’s always exciting to receive so many amazing pieces from our exceptionally talented fans. Over the years, we’ve gotten thoughtful digital artwork, a custom video game, a commercial-grade hardwood table (and lots of other furniture), an electrical music player, a hand-embroidered jean jacket and just about everything in between. But by far our favorite part of the contest is our gallery opening party where we get to meet fun, nice, creative, highly skilled people who we can work with beyond the contest.

In the past, Art of Tröegs artists have made signage for our brewery, participated in our Nugget Nectar First Squeeze artwork campaign, and even painted our food truck. Now we are super excited to announce that we have our first beer label design from an Art of Tröegs alumnus! Last year, we received over 40 pieces of art and Devin Watson’s piece, which depicted Troegenator riding a three-wheeled bike through a psychedelic dreamscape, showed incredible design skill and creativity so we couldn’t wait to see what he could do with the design for

Art of Tröegs CONTEST (1/1/19-4/28/19)

It’s your turn to get in on the art. Our annual Art of Tröegs Contest has been happening for more than a decade now, and each year, it gets bigger and better.

The challenge is simple: Create a piece of art inspired by Tröegs. It can be flat. It can be 3-dimensional. It can be a sculpture or a song. It can be anything you dream up, as long as it has a Tröegs twist.

The winner will get $500 and be the star of the Art of Tröegs Gallery above the Splinter Cellar of our Hershey brewery!

Last year, we were wowed by a Renaissance-style portrait of our founding brothers painted by Marni Manning, who enjoyed red-carpet treatment at our 2017 Gallery Opening in July. In addition to a meet-and-greet with several of the artists who submitted pieces this year, we also gave guests a sneak peek at our upcoming batch of Wild Elf. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for 2018!

Our panel of judges will choose their favorite piece. If you are selected as our winner, you will get:

  • $500 cash prize
  • Third-annual Art of Tröegs Gallery opening party held in your honor
  • One night’s accommodations for you and a few friends (two rooms)
  • Bragging rights for life!

Two runners-up will receive a cash prize, an invitation to the gallery opening party and a one-night hotel stay.

Submissions will be judged on the following criteria:

  • 25% – Creative use of Tröegs artwork
  • 25% – Concept/Story
  • 25% – Craftsmanship
  • 25% – General Awesomeness!

Submissions will be accepted by mail, online and in person. Mail-in submissions can be sent to Tröegs Independent Brewing, Attn: Art of Tröegs, 200 E. Hershey Park Drive, Hershey, PA 17033. In-person submissions can be delivered to our General Store during regular business hours. Digital submissions or photos of finished work can be sent to info@troegs.com. All submissions for this year’s contest are due by April 29, 2018, and MUST include your name, address, email and phone number. Seriously. While we love getting random pieces of amazing artwork, it’s a total bummer if we don’t know who did it.
