Quality and Selection- Troegs is, by far, my favorite brewery. I have never had a bad or off beer from Troegs and I pretty much love everything they make. All the scratch beers I've tasted-their regular lineup, and their seasonals are exceptional. On tap at the brewpub they have all of their regular line-up, a seasonal or two and two or three scratch beers- which, of course are brewery/brewpub only. Last time I was their they had their scratch pumpkin ale on-which was AMAZING.

Atmosphere- I'm not sure what theme they were going with here- industrial brewery, german oktoberfest, or high school cafeteria- but the brewpub area is some cluster of a combination of the three. Totally packed with hundreds of people and the only seats remotely available were at the giant octoberfest/cafeteria like table for 100- you go wait in line cafeteria-style for food and you can either try your luck waiting at the bar for a drink or flag down a beer server to get drinks. Very loud and crowded. Its saving grace is that it is very clean, has a great brewery tour, and fantastic store.

Service- Like I said- the beer servers are nice and know their beer-but you have to flag them down and you have to go wait in line for food.

Food- Limited as it is a "snack bar"- with an atypical selection including salmon, tuna tacos, brautwurst, and duck. I had the Brat- it was ok, we had an $8 stuffed pretzel too.

Overall- I will obviously be back since this place is my favorite brewery ever- but probably in the early afternoon when its not so crowded and I don't plan on eating here ever again unless they make some changes.

This place is really a brewer's dream come true. The dining area is delightfully integrated into a fancy brewing area, separated only by the bar. Why there is not a paper place-mat with a guide to all of the fancy stainless steel is beyond me. I can't think of any other place where these two elements are so delightfully integrated. Food is ordered and picked up at the far end of the room, which really makes things a lot easier. Also, there is a pretty straight forward self-guided tour, which was a nice touch.

The food was a mix. First of all, I had the best pretzel of my entire life there; no exaggeration. It was rolled in spent barley, and simply perfect. However, the poutine fries were disgusting. They were close to a cross of mashed potatoes and french fries drenched in gravy. You could literally eat them with a spoon, which was decidedly unappetizing. Bad fries is bad fries. Next, we had the bratwurst, which was solid, but nothing special.

Troegs makes solid beer, so I can't say too much about this. Nothing amazing, but nothing you'd consider sending back.

Service was fine. As mentioned, we had to pick up our own food. The place was packed and there was a long line for beer, but we managed to get the bartender's attention at our seat on the far edge of the bar. Not too bad, but it could be terrible on a really busy day.

Not a bad place, but if you're a brewer or into the brewing process, this would be a really special experience. And for God's sake, order the pretzel!

Excellent, almost perfect. Guided tours were booked for at least a month of Saturdays but I went to tour desk and asked if there was any possibility of getting on tour for 23rd anniversary - we were on the next tour. Food was gourmet level, beer was delicious and staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Only downside is 240 mile roundtrip!
