**Service has improved a bit, bumping it up .25**
I figure since I have visited this place about 100 times since they opened over a year ago it might be time to sit down and actually write up a review, my 50th place review to be exact.
The atmosphere is hard to describe. The space is huge with people sitting all over the place. The large bar area and the big beer hall table seem to be peoples favorites, with the outside seating area getting a lot of use in the warmer weather months. The walking tour is a really cool feature and the general store sells any and all things Troegs for people looking for some swag or to buy some beer to go, just be aware that the general store closes before the bar area does.
The service has been hit or miss since the day they opened. I used to have to wait a LONG time to get even the simplest of service but I have to say it has definitely improved over the last few months. The wait times have become shorter and they have finally hired some people who know what they are talking about...
The quality is top notch. The beers are, for the most part, world class and the food is all made with the highest grade ingredients. They use all the correct glasses and they have a counter pressure filler for growlers, however they will still fill screw tops off the taps.
The selection is what you would expect for a brewery. They have their six flagship, year round beers on at all times to go along with a few of the seasonal offerings. They usually have at least one scratch beer on, sometimes up to 3-4 depending on how fast they are selling / making them.
The snack bar is a new thing they have been doing for the last six or so months. They offer quite a few different things to eat, enough to satisfy most picky diners. I have tried about 2/3 of the menu now, altho it is ever changing, and it is all excellent. A few of my current favorites would include the large brewers pretzel, the pork confit tacos and the crispy pork belly. The prices at the snack bar are a little high for my taste but most of the items are worth it.
Overall a HUGE upgrade over the old harrisburg location and a welcome addition to the area. I look forward to visiting the brewery for many years to come.

A very large tasting room. Lots of people. Plenty of good beer.
A really long bar and attentive bar staffs ensures that your glass will not be empty for long.
Plenty of beer selection from their standard beers to the scratch series.
Last time I was there the misses and kids dropped me as they wanted to go to the outlets.
As this is a tasting room the food selection is quite limited.
But I don't go there for the food.
There is an awesome gift shop for your every need.
