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.
