Conveniently located at the start of Hersheypark Drive.
The place was pretty well packed when I got there with the family on a Sunday afternoon. Only did the self-guided tour this time since this wasn't planned that far ahead in advance, will definitely reserve a tour in the future.
The Tasting Room was pretty well packed and there needs to be more seating, which is why I had to give a lower rating on the service, but the servers I did encounter and deal with were friendly.
We only ordered a small desert while there, but the food we did see coming from the snack bar looked and smelled phenomenal!
The bar area had a short line for growler fills and drink purchases on the one end, which was helpful as like I said it was packed!
The gift shop has plenty of the usual fare: T-shirts, hats, stickers and a nice selection of Troeg's glassware.
I will definitely be making the hour drive back out to Hershey again with a couple friends to hang out while the wife takes the kids to Hershey Park for the day in the summer time.

Visited with my wife and we loved the place. It is located pretty much at the entrance road to Hershey Park. It was packed, we had to wait to park until someone left. Great food, fantastic beer selection on tap. I've become a Troegs fan. The only reason for the low rating on service was that the place was so busy there really wasn't any table service to speak of. But samples at the bar were served by friendly and knowledgable staff and the food at the snack counter was great. Try the brown butter popcorn if they have it. Great souvenir store as well. Can't wait to go back, if you are in the area this is definitely worth a visit.

Atmosphere: Awesome brewery, place is a piece of art. Not a spec of dirt anywhere, place is immaculate. Have been here twice, I recommend going during the week. On a weekend, place is swamped and extremely hard to find any type of seating or tours.

Quality: Troegs makes awesome beers, but on tap at the brewery they are a different animal. Everything extremely crisp tasting.

Service: Everyone was pretty awesome there. All very nice, quick, prompt, and seem to really dig when you wear a cool beer shirt because I have gotten a numerous compliments on just shirts from employees.

Selection: All year rounds, seasonals, and a few scratches. If luckily, they will have a special 750 available.

Food: The real high light of the whole place. I mean its seriously food you would expect to see at a high end restaurant, with many innovative snacks. Ahi Tuna, oysters, soups, hop oil french fries, pretzels, popcorn, ect.

Value: Beers are resonably prices, usually $5 a pour for the regulars and seasonals, while higher ABV beers reach $7 for a snifter. Food prices are a little high, but the quality is unreal so I didn't mind paying for it.

Great tasting room. A little different from the typical restaurant/pub attached to a brewery or just a tasting bar in the gift shop.

Tour was thorough and gave you a good look at the brewing process and a little about Troegs. Better than many tours I've been on.

The set-up is great in that you can give them a card and then all you have to do is give one of the servers canvasing the room your name or give your name to someone at the "snack bar" your name. No set waiter, just plenty of people roaming to help with whatever you need.

Gift shop is nice. Overall the place is huge and makes you feel like you are in the brewery rather than just a restaurant/bar serving their beers.

I could see that some people might think this place is a little overdone or like a big marketing machine, but highly recommend making a stop here.

I had an extremely pleasant visit to the brewery, brewpub, and store on Saturday 12-128-13.
Immaculate interior, well designed, friendly, open, and overall a great visual presentation. The staff is friendly, informative, and helpful. The beer on tap is wonderful as always. The food was excellent, prices reasonable. Easy in, and easy out. One can't ask for much more.
I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and I will return in 2 weeks for a longer visit.

Large brewpub area, plenty of seating, but it can get crowded. Food is great, but there is no servers waiting on tables. The drafts are only troegs selections, and can be very underwelming at times. The retail shop is large, and sells their beer along with the usual shirts, pint glasses, etc.
