Return from ‘burgh weekend; a few hours in, a few hours to go. Sunday lunch play fitting the time of day and where we be along the way. Between Interstates but not hugging either one, geographically undesirably Hershey. Their sirens singing sweet songs luring us to amusement park rides...

So, in and past the self guided brewery tour that wraps around to the backside of the company store galore to the tasting room massive. And I mean massive. Blue gray wall to the rear and beige otherwise, with a few cool tarplike Troegs beer paintings. Concrete floorings, a single giant windmill from the ceiling, ductwork snaking ventilation from industrial sheeting, drop fluoro lamps hugging the ceiling & thimble lamps on the end.

A row of brewing equipment to the rear (mash kettle, lauter tun, hop back, wort kettle) platformed to the rear cut through, meaning they sit on the floor and the raised platform is fitted around them 2/3 of the way up. Fronting this, an ‘L’ shaped light wood topped bar with a shiny stainless steel base running the length, seating upwards of a dozen and a half on raised backed chairs. The barback is matching counter with 4 x 8 blackboards above on the ends listing tap selections ‘year round’ and ‘scratch/seasonals’, ABV’s & IBU’s. growler filling apparatus in between, with 2 litre swingtops to both sides, and logo handle 15 tap towers fronting. Shelved glassware & colorfully labeled sodas in coolers below.

Adjacent to the bar, a loooong row of 7 rectangular tables pushed together seating a collective 40 or so, and just behind there, 2 nooks with a shared bench and nearly a half dozen 2-seat tables. Around the other side of the near seating divider, a half dozen booths and 8 square tables in 2 rows up to the front windows, overlooking the shorty patio, and the goddamn rain rain rain. A row of 10 narrow picnic tables awned over out there, and 4 tables set vertically under umbrellas, those seated there getting wet backed, not in a good way.

On tap, 6 house standards (Hopback Amber, Troegenator Doublebock, Perpetual IPA, DreamWeaver Wheat, Troegs Pale Ale, Java Head Stout), and 4 in the scratch series (#71 Dim Wit, #73 Fest Lager, #74 American Brown Ale, #75 English IPA), and 3 seasonals (Sunshine Pils, Dead Reckoning Porter, Flying Mouflan Barleywine).

Having imbibed all the standards & seasonals before, I wanted to get at some of the Scratch series stuff for starters. Did a sampler of 3 of my choice (#71 Dim Wit, flowery, lavender, spiciness; #73 Fest Lager, nice maltiness, sweety; #74 American Brown Ale, nice hoppy adventure, big brown body, “and a shit storm of delicious”, adds Ben), and then another (Sunshine Pils, soft, spicy, love; Dead Reckoning Porter, wonderfully roasty, chocolate; #75 EIPA, grassy, nutty, earthy), and now a shorty of the Perpetual IPA (oh Mt. Hood hops, it’s been too long, that’s a mean IPA). The #73 Fest Lager, #74 American Brown Ale, & Dead Reckoning Porter were the best of ‘em.

Snack bar on the far end of the room. It’s really more of an open kitchen with a bar counter piece fronting. Order, pay, & go away. Get buzzed & return for pick up. Snacks, shares, soups, salads, sandwiches (we did, in fact), and sweets. Witz had the brisket sandwich (very good), Ben, the Lebanon bologna sandwich (delicious!), Evil Davo, the grilled cheese (good), and I took in the grilled cheese, as well (Amish cheddar, brie, & Colby cheeses) on a white buttery toast. Came with a roasted tomato dip, soup like. Ben revisited his opinion (as he often does) on the bologna sandwich asking for it to be noted that “it was beyond delicious, an outstanding bologna sandwich”.

It’s a massive industrial space, but it still seriously kicks the ass of the Saturday pretzel play tasting room they moved from. Comfortable enough room, good tunes today; Dylan & the Band. Shiny new facility with lots of room to do what they need do, and a barrel aging room, too (daaamn). Now, to navigate back to the Interstate, either one.

Beautiful decor of creativity. Excellent self guided tour with graffiti artwork. Beers are top notch and always have a new limited experimental beer. Staff is helpful and knowledgable. Food is always interesting and unique. It's as good as the beer.
