Compared to the old Troegs brewery, this one is incredible. Much more room to move around, and they offer real, and good, food now. There is a "self-guided tour" you can take for free while enjoying your fresh beer. It is not too spectacular, but it is a good way to pass the time while waiting for your grub to come up (even get buzzers like waiting for a table at a restaurant). The gift shop is spacious and offers up plenty of beer, accessories, and any other beer-related trinkets you can think of. The ACTUAL tour is $5 but it is well worth every cent. You get an in-depth tour from a knowledgeable member of the staff; along the way getting the usual hops, barley, etc exposure. An added bonus (if you're lucky) is to taste some not-yet-released (or named for that matter) beer. At the end of the tour you get some samples, and a free pint glass. Not bad for $5.

Now to the important part: the pub area. There is a LONG L-shaped bar allowing for plenty of space right up front. In addition to that, there is a VERY long beer hall style table. If you want some privacy there are plenty of booths and regular tables, including an area that is sectioned off from the bar (allowing for quieter dining I suppose)

Overall, it is a great place with good beer, and good food. Very easy to pop in for a quick beer, or to stick around and kill an evening before a nearby hockey game or Hershey Park trip. Definitely worth stopping by if you're in the area; maybe even worth the trip itself.

Been here twice going home from Hershey park with the family. Basically letting the Dad visit before the family goes home.
Nothing like getting some scratch beer not available at home.

Oh HOME of Nugget nectar and mad elf MMMMMmmm
Can't be the stuff on tap.
Yet to try the naked elf , which was only available at the brewery. Missed my opportunity.

Great place. Got More T shirts !!

That's all from me

This place gets crowded fast, and the availability of brewery tours is very low, but they offer a nice alternative I'd love to see more places give: the ability to do a self-guided tour. It's considerably shorter and doesn't show you much of what you'd likely learn walking around with a group of people and a brewery employee, but there are info graphics on the walls at different stations and you can carry your beer or food through the area as you read.

The food itself is fantastic. It's cafeteria style, so you do have to order it and go find a seat in a crowded warehouse-sized room, but the food itself is so far from the typical run-of-the-mill variety you'll see in some brewpubs that it more than makes up for it. Their variety is everything from small, cheese-based plates to larger entrees that include venison, pork, porchetta, and a number of other German-inspired dishes.

The beer itself is great too, but you probably already know that. The brewery is one of the few things of note in Hershey (and maybe the only thing of note in the winter when Hershey Park is closed), so it's extremely popular. Parking is rough and not that big, but once you're in, you'll find a great atmosphere.

Used to go to the original brewery way back when but this is an awesome upgrade! Definitely a better location and a little further away from normal traffic in the area. I just really like the entire environment of the place. Very comfortable. GREAT food and lots of different beers on tap, including many offerings from their Scratch series. A place I'll go back to whenever I can.
